Michelin stars awarded to three hotels
The restaurants at the Steigenberger Hotels Drei Mohren Augsburg, Frankfurter Hof and the Graf Zeppelin in Stuttgart have all consolidated their leading culinary positions.
The new Guide Michelin published on 27 February 2019 awards one star to three separate Steigenberger Hotels & Resorts restaurants. The proud recipients are the Restaurant Satory at the Steigenberger Drei Mohren in Augsburg, the Français at the Frankfurter Hof, Frankfurt am Main, and the Olivo at the Steigenberger Graf Zeppelin in Stuttgart.
“Steigenberger has a clear commitment to offering our guests the very best restaurant experience every single day,” said Deutsche Hospitality CEO Thomas Willms. “This recognition of the culinary expertise of Simon Lang at the Satory, Patrick Bittner at the Frankfurter Hof and Anton Gschwendtner at the Graf Zeppelin does great credit to all three and to the brand as a whole.”
Under the leadership of Patrick Bittner, the Français at the Steigenberger Frankfurter Hof has specialised in light French-inspired cuisine based on classic elements. Patrick Bittner has held a Michelin star since 2009 and has also been awarded an impressive 17 points by Gault Millau.
Anton Gschwendtner, who did not take over as Head Chef at the Olivo until May 2018, wins a Michelin star for the second time. He uses regional and seasonal produce to cook a modern style of French cuisine which also features Asian influences. Anton Gschwendtner came to Stuttgart from the “Loft” Restaurant in Vienna. He was named as Austrian “Rising star of the year” in the 2018 Rolling Pin Awards and was also voted one of Austria’s 50 Best Cooks during his time in Vienna.
Simon Lang, who is celebrating his first Michelin star, offers French cooking with a Mediterranean twist. He trained at the Hotel Alpenhof in Augsburg before moving on to the Bayerischer Hof in Munich and subsequently to a Michelin star restaurant on the island of Sylt. He has also worked with the Michelin star winning restaurateur and celebrity chef Alfons Schuhbeck in Munich.
