Purism stands for purity and simplicity, free of distractions. Transferring this style to the culinary arts requires a sure instinct and an excellent palate. The young two-star chef Anton Gschwendtner proves both with his culinary art in the Atelier restaurant.

On the ground floor of Munich's traditional five-star hotel Bayerischer Hof, he has been creating wonderfully delicious menus that combine French with Asian influences - complemented by seasonal and regional ingredients - since November 2021.

In autumn, for example, this is the cherry, combined with Marcona almonds to create a finely tuned parfait. To accompany this, head sommelier Shahzad Talukder recommends a delicious sake from Japan, which will delight even consistent sweet wine enthusiasts.

Guests can choose between five and seven courses at the Atelier. And even the prelude with three different amuse-bouches (highlight: the Wagyu avocado macaron!) promises the highest pleasure.

In addition to other fine-tasting dishes such as the duet of caviar and oyster, the appetiser is particularly impressive with its beautiful appearance: a piece of fleshy emperor lobster, so artfully draped that it resembles a mermaid's fin.

But that was already the maximum of playfulness in the current menu. After all, Anton Gschwendtner's star-awarded cuisine is dominated by purist style - and the finesse with which the individual, sometimes intense flavours are combined. Side dishes such as carrots and kohlrabi are therefore more likely to be found as finely chopped accessories or clearly outlined ovals on the plates. 

Similarly restrained: the ambience of the restaurant. Belgian interior designer Axel Vervoordt is responsible for the luxuriously simple design with dark, muted tones and a rather modest room height. In the colder months of the year, this may make the Atelier feel cosy, but in the summer months, some guests may wish for more light. 

On the other hand, the kindly disposition of the well-trained service team, above all restaurant manager Daniela Heizmann, is enlightening all year round. The Franconian leads charmingly through the menu and takes time for each guest.

In combination with the simple yet complex cuisine, the Atelier creates a harmonious unity - pure and unadulterated.
