A restaurant in classic style - this is how Christian Planko describes his restaurant, Oechsle. In Bundesstraße, the experienced chef offers simple dishes with a modern interpretation.

Planko serves noble wines to accompany the haute cuisine: the wine assortment includes almost 100 selected positions, mainly from Germany and France. The fact that the pairing of food and wine is particularly important to him is also reflected in the name of the restaurant (for all beer drinkers): the Oechsle scale is a unit of measurement for the density of grape "Most" named after its inventor Ferdinand Oechsle. The Most weight is a measure of the amount of sugar in grape juice.

After completing his formation at gourmet-restaurant Victorian in Düsseldorf and working in star-rated kitchens, Christian Planko decided to open a restaurant that combines haute cuisine and cosiness. He found a suitable location in the beautiful premises of the former "La Mirabelle", which he transformed into a classy, modern place after three months of renovation. The menu is clear but varied, and vegetarians also get their money's worth.

We start maritime in form of pickled fjord trout with lettuce, apple chutney and marinated cucumbers. Christian Planko knows how to harmonise flavours perfectly. He gives classic dishes a special twist, for instance, here with the apple chutney. The dish is not only visually appealing but also tastes great!

We followed the chef's personal recommendation: pike-perch. Served with leaf spinach, olive potato mash and grape marc mustard sauce. Since quality is very important to him, the fish is wild-caught. To accompany our main course, we naturally drink wine. We taste the natural wine Chardonnay "R" Pure, vintage 2020, from the Seckinger winery. A spicy Chardonnay with citrus notes and a slightly salty touch.

Contrary to popular assumptions about portion sizes in haute cuisine, the plates at Oechsle are so lavish that we share a dessert. A good decision, because the chef has meant well for us with the créme brûlée with marinated berries. In conversation, Christian Planko tells us that it is important to him that his guests go home satisfied and return. We, dear Christian, were very satisfied and we will come again!
