Werneckstrasse, between Leopoldstrasse and the English Garden, is tranquil and idyllic – and yet it stands at the focal point of the gourmet world: In the shortest time, Chef de Cuisine Tohru Nakamura, half German, half Japanese, has obtained international recognition for the Werneckhof in Munich's Schwabing district, with modern, individual Euroasian cuisine. Right away, the gourmet restaurant Werneckhof was awarded a Michelin star and 17 Gault Millau points. The young, experimental flavour virtuoso had previously refined his cooking philosophy to a point in renowned gourmet restaurants in Germany and abroad. Together with the experienced restaurant manager Ireneo Tucci – Italian, wine connoisseur and impassioned host – and the attentive and friendly service staff, he breathed new life into the Werneckhof. And that with a relaxed touch that is rare to find in a Michelin-star kitchen. The dining rooms themselves do the rest: The interior revels in finest Art-Nouveau, leaving guests with the feeling that not much has changed in Schwabing and the rest of the world during the last 100 years. Everything about this gourmet restaurant exudes a cosy, almost private atmosphere, while always giving the sense of effortless perfection. Antique buffet cabinets and chandeliers, elaborate stuccos on the walls, a cherry wood bench along the wall, lead-glazed windows, natural lighting – a simply magnificent place to dine and celebrate. For special occasions you can book a separée with a dark-wood coffered ceiling, or the entire restaurant with all 50 seats.
