Anton Gschwendtner from the Steigenberger Graf Zeppelin and Patrick Bittner from the Steigenberger Frankfurter Hof awarded with Michelin stars


Once again this year, Anton Gschwendtner, head chef at Olivo in the Steigenberger Graf Zeppelin, and Patrick Bittner, head chef at Français in the Steigenberger Frankfurter Hof, were awarded stars by the Guide Michelin. Anton Gschwendtner serves a modern French cuisine combined with Asian influences and received his second Michelin star twelve months ago. Patrick Bittner’s light style of French cooking has been impressing the specialist jury at Guide Michelin since 2009, and his one star status has also been re-endorsed.

“We would like to offer Anton Gschwendtner and Patrick Bittner our warmest congratulations on their awards,” said Marcus Bernhardt, CEO of Deutsche Hospitality. “This is a great sign of confidence in the quality of their work and their passion for their profession, especially in this pandemic-ridden year. As far as the Steigenberger brand is concerned, it is an honour and an incentive to work with two such high-end and experienced head chefs and to be able to offer our guests a true culinary adventure.”

Anton Gschwendtner has headed up the Olivo at the Steigenberger Graf Zeppelin since 2018. He achieved his first Michelin star the very next year and went on to obtain the accolade of a second star in 2020. Patrick Bittner took over as Head Chef of the Français at the Steigenberger Frankfurter Hof in 2000. He has held his Michelin star since as long ago as 2009. The Français has also been awarded 17 points by the Gault&Millau Restaurant Guide.
