Fine-Dining.Blog @ Richter‘s Fine Dining in Stuttgart

The Richter’s Fine Dining Restaurant in Stuttgart with a great philosophy and host

On the homepage of the Richter’s Fine Dining restaurant you can read the following:

“We have a deep appreciation for every product we work with. We maintain trust-based relationships with our partners and vendors. Most of them are successful family-operated businesses steeped in years of tradition. Their products make very important contributions to the fine quality Richter’s serves on every plate. The guest must be able to experience our passion and enthusiasm for gourmet food with every sense. What’s more: Our servings are generous and you’ll never leave hungry.”

Well what we can say on that? We gave Yesterday their six course Dégustation Menu a try and we were not at disappointed. Like you can read on Wikipedia: “a Dégustation menu is the careful, appreciative tasting of various food, focusing on the gustatory system, the senses, high culinary art and good company. Dégustation menus are more likely to involve sampling small portions of all of a chef’s signature dishes in one sitting.” All of that we found in the menu Yesterday and it perfectly represented the Richter’s Fine Dining philosophy like noted on their homepage.

So René Richter who runs the restaurant, a trained as a professional restaurateur and chef promissed not too much at all! And like mentioned on his homepage: “However, being a host is my greatest passion – at home as well as in the restaurant. I want my guests to feel right at home and well taken care of when they spend time with me as their host. If they’re not happy, I’m not happy.”

So Mr. Richter you can be very happy, because we were very happy Yesterday and we will be back for sure 😉

Fine-Dining.Blog @ 5 Restaurant in Stuttgart

Train Stadion and fine-dining restaurant 5 in Stuttgart

Yes, it is well known that Stuttgart has been working at a new railway station for quite some time now. What we did not know, however, is that the fine-dining restaurant 5 is located in the former Stuttgart train station from 1846. The location of the first Stuttgart main station was until 1922 on the Schlossstraße, which is now called Bolzstraße in the relevant section, near the Schlossplatz. A wooden hall spanned four railways at this time. The first train arrived on September 26, 1846 from Stuttgart-Cannstatt coming. The gigantic black steel girders on the first floor of the restaurant still tell of its history as a train station.

This past gives the restaurant on the upper floor an incomparable charm, really great.  And why is Restaurant 5, awarded with one Michelin star, now named 5? Because of the 5 o’clock trains? No, not really, that 5 should refer to the Chinese doctrine of the five elements, the five elements are a classic model of the diversity of life and its transformations.  Here the bow spans to the kitchen of the 5 and its variety and its breathtaking dishes. Trains are not arriving anymore at 5 o’clock, but for that comes course by course a fine-dining experience at its best! So we will come back soon and wait for the 5 o’clock train again while enjoying that awesome restaurant and by the way we have ordered of course 5 courses 😉

Why back again in the OLIVO Restaurant in Stuttgart?

We are back again for the third time at the famous Stuttgart Gourmet restaurant OLIVO because its Chef have changed. The old chef Nico Burkhardt left the OLIVO in the summer this year and the new chef is now Anton Gschwendtner. Mr. Gschwendtner is from Austria and there he is already awarded for one of the 5o best Austrian Chefs. Further more Anton Gschwendtner received the Austrian 2018 newcomer of the year award. So that was enough reason for us to be back again at the Stuttgart OLIVO and write our third report in our Fine Dining Blog. 

So new chef, new team and still the same OLIVO? Well there is no doubt that the OLIVO Restaurant Stuttgart serves its guests still fine dining food at its best. Yes Anton Gschwendtner and his team really surprises with their creations. The food is for sure a bit French fine dining style but at the same time there is also a quite nice Asian influence in most of his creations, which we really liked and enjoyed a lot. Especially the nice and friendly team together with the Asian influenced courses are for us already now today reason enough to be back with our Fine Dining Blog also a fourth time 😉

Fine-Dining.Blog @ MING CHINACENTER in Freiberg

Real Chinese fine dining now available in the MING CHINACENTER in Freiberg close to Stuttgart.

To makes things right from the beginning of that blog article clear – the MING CHINACENTER in Freiberg close to Stuttgart is not a Chinese restaurant in Germany – the MING CHINACENTER (German name China Haus Freiberg) is Chinese fine dining at its best in the middle of South Germany. How is that possible? Well good question and we also hardly couldn’t believe that when we heard about it for the first time. We thought „well another typical German influenced Chinese restaurant….“. But anyhow we gave it a try and well what can we say – we were – we still are deeply impressed! First of all you have to book your table at that fine dining restaurant, you can not just walk in. Why – because all is prepared fresh, really fresh direct from the market and garden on your plate, that’s the concept, more fresh is not possible! 

Ming Ze Schaumann is the owner of the MING CHINACENTER, he is the chef and he is a real artist in his kitchen but not only in his kitchen, all the interior design, all the decoration and all the pictures and sculptures in the garden and in the restaurant are from him. He and his wife are running the restaurant and as soon you are entering their MING CHINACENTER you feel like being overseas somewhere in Shanghai. Already the garden make you feel like walk into a club park in a high end restaurant in Shanghai somewhere in the former French Concession. Also the food is real real fine Chinese food at its best – yes Chinese – not some kind of sweat sour „Chinese German fake food“ – no real fine dining like you can find it in some places for example in Shanghai or HongKong in overseas. So it was never so easy and never so cheap to travel to China for us here in South Germany than now – Thanks to Ming Ze Schaumann and his MING CHINACENTER in Freiberg close to Stuttgart you can have a quite easy and breathtaking fine dining journey to China and that even without any flight ticket 😉

Fine-Dining.Blog @ HAERLIN Restaurant in Hamburg

Restaurant Haerlin at Fairmont Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten Hamburg

The Haerlin Restaurant is decorated with lots of awards, it is awarded with two Michelin Stars and 19 Gault Millau Points and the titles German Restaurant of the Year 2014 and 2016 (Der Feinschmecker), Hamburg’s Best Chef 2014 (Great Gourmet Prize Hamburg) and Chef of the Year 2015 (Gault Millau). These are a lot awards and all of them are really well deserved. But what is the meaning of the restaurant‘s name?

1897 a South German hotelier from Stuttgart, named Friedrich Haerlin, bought the hotel „Zu den Vier Jahreszeiten“ and the history of the iconic Hamburg Hotel started and its restaurant still wears the family name of its founder Friedrich Haerlin.

Nowadays more than 100 years later inside these historic walls with so many history the Chef Christoph Rüffer and his team are really celebrating fine dining at its best! Like they are noting on their homepage:

Creativity and international influences also add to the restaurant’s interior: Chinese silk tapestries and gold embossing complement bright nuances of cream and light green. Real highlights for oenophiles are the built-in wine closet made of glass and polished brass which contains precious liquids and rarities as well as the associated Sommelier’s high table. The Four Seasons are represented in form of four Nymphenburg porcelain statuettes from 1919.

So we highly recommend to discover that iconic place, its history, its interior and well don’t forget to book a table soon enough and discover the tasting menu, it deserves any single award and star it received so far! Just breathtaking – check our pics – we think they speak from themselves 🙂

Fine-Dining.Blog @ Gutsschenke Monrepos in Ludwigsburg

Fine-Dining.Blog @ Gutsschenke Monrepos in Ludwigsburg looking for the new young team

On the homepage of the restaurant Gutsschenke you can read the following: A young team in historic walls: Gutsschenke gourmet restaurant. No other restaurant in Ludwigsburg has a sunny terrace surrounded by chestnut trees, the historic and at the same time modern flair of the 150-year old building, and a young kitchen team which interprets the classy french cuisine in a new, playful way. Ben Benasr and his team had been awarded with 1 Michelin Star in the Guide Michelin 2018 again and 16 points in the Gault & Millau guide 2018.

So is it like that? Fine-Dining.Blog was Yesterday again in that restaurant. Yes we know it from the past, because Ludwigsburg is our hometown and in the past everything was a bit old, the historic walls but also the menu, the interior and the whole restaurant. But now all changed!!!! First of all we are very happy and proud to have have now just in walking distance from our home a Micheline starred restaurant 😉 And yes for sure it is now a really young team which changed all – ok not all the walls of the restaurant are still historic but all the rest is new, it’s different, it’s kind of cool and the team is younger and they really really deserve that Michelin star!!!!!! They are doing a great job and the menu was really really great! So we will be back soon 😉
