Diver Sea Scallops with Caramelized Cauliflower

Diver Sea Scallops with Caramelized Cauliflower

Diver sea scallops are very special I love the large size "seafood candy". The combo cauliflower and scallops was a souvenire from the days in Paris. Note the tarragon on top of it which is a great garnish with its fennel notes.

Daily Oysters

Daily Oysters

I liked the combo of martinis and oysters. So we decided to serve the oysters in an oversized martini glass.

A classic dish with a new take I use caviar instead of egg yolk in this carbonara.

Spring food


Mason Jar Vegetables

Mason Jar Vegetables

I have been looking out for a great alternative for people which eat vegan. All the vegetables are cooked before, blanched, roasted, seared, grilled and then get reheated in a mason jar with fresh herbs.
Condiments are artichoke powder and red beet powder (shakers), fig balsam and pumpkin seed oil (dropers).


Popcorn Crusted Chicken

Popcorn Crusted Chicken

This is the dish we won Iron Chef of America against Boby Flay


Prawn Carpaccio with Beet Ribbons

Prawn Carpaccio with Beet Ribbons

It does not have tobe always your beef carpaccio here we used flatened wild prawns and marinated it with a beer and lime dressing. The beet ribbons add texture and sweetness in contrast to the sharp radish.

Saturday Schnitzel & Parsley Potato Confit

Saturday Schnitzel & Parsley Potato Confit

Growing up in Austria we had many requests from our guests. Finally we put it as a special dish on Saturday evening on our menu. Wiener Schnitzel - a gently flatened all natural veal cutlet, bread crumbed and pan fried. It is served with potato confit salad and rocket salad.

The house-made BBQ sauce sears perfectly into the rich pork belly. Tangy-rich!!

Spring Salad, Pumpernickel  Soil, Smoked Idiazabal Cheese

To me soil is so much a part of salad so we added this element to this dish by sprinkling finely ground Pumpernickel bread over the salad.


Spring Rabbit Medaillons - Yellow & Green Zucchini, roasted Pepper, Green Mustard

Spring Rabbit Medaillons - Yellow & Green Zucchini, roasted Pepper, Green Mustard

The rabbit is boneless and shaped into medaillons. We cooked it for 10 hours at low temperature to keep the moistness in the meat.

We serve this dish with a translucent tube when it is infront of the guest it is removed and the rice dish literally unfolds.

I like how the soft shell "hugs" the salmon

The snails are cooked in veal broth. This kind of pasta is ideal for this dish it holds plenty of snail/veal sauce in its hollow.


24 Hours Lamb with House-made Rigatoni and Purple Torpedo Onions

24 Hours Lamb with House-made Rigatoni and Purple Torpedo Onions

Braising lamb shoulder and neck for 24 hours makes sense it is butter tender and folds nicely into the pasta.

Speck is made where I spent my childhood (Tyrol/Austria) they use a good amount of Juniper in the marinating process so I wanted to highlight this.


Wild cress, Fava Beans, Violets, Husdon Valley Camembert

I love their products - Old Sheparding Company they make exceptional cheese. The spicy wild cress is a great counter to the soft-creamy cheese.

We sprinkle the dish with cooked mustard seeds which pop like caviar in your mouth.

Snails & lettuce - seem to be a locical combo to me. We add a touch of red wine and enriche it with chrushed avocado.


Sea Scallops & Spaetzel and Burned Onion Emulsion

Sea Scallops & Spaetzel and Burned Onion Emulsion

I wanted to make a seafood gulyas which is a Hungarian style meat stew. We dusted scallops with sweet Hungarian paprika and seared them slowly and made a very slowly cooked, caramelized onion puree seasoned with Hungarian cumin and lemon zest. The dish is served with spaetzel pasta (a free shape dumpling pasta)


Egg-in-a-whole-salad with Yellow Garden Beans, Spinach and Preserved Truffle Vinaigrette

Egg-in-a-whole-salad with Yellow Garden Beans, Spinach and Preserved Truffle Vinaigrette

I read "egg in a whole" on some tiny milk bar menu. We incoporated it in this salad. Low temperature cooked egg yolk which is then spiced and whipped.


Heirloom Beet & French Blue Cheese Salad with Romain and Pumpernickel Soil

Why pumpernickel soil?
To me beets are so connected to soil hence the word play.

Hemp seeds add a great pinenut like flavor besides having pleasant texture.
