Here are some personal choosen culinary recommendations  for my hometown Munich:

(good wine lists are mentioned)



NEW: Sparkling Bistro (my hottest tip for casual fine dining at the moment, Chef Jürgen is a well trained and experienced pro who combines soul cooking and fine dining, excellent product sourcing), ask Chef Jürgen for a wine journey and for Super Tuscan Coravin offers

Tantris ** (classic cooking, cool 70ty design and a very good wine list (best in the city, city center prices) with all the famous producers, good Coravin offers), great selection of Selosse with different Deg. Dates), great Leroy, d’Auvenay and DRC selection,  ask Sommelier Nicolas Spanier for recommendations

Atelier im Bayerischen Hof *** (Jan Hartwig creates the best Menus in Munich now, ask Sommelier Jochen Benz for wine recommendations), usual wine list needs improvement for a 3 star restaurant

Werneckhof ** (modern cooking with Japanese influence by head chef Tohru Nakamura, great Burgundy expertise by Sommelier Tobias Klass) Wine List may needs improvement for a 2 star restaurant

Esszimmer ** (international cooking, cosy atmosphere for a romantic dinner), very good wine list, fair priced, ask for Frank Glüer for recommendations)

Alois ** (FOTO) casual fine dining, inner city near Marienplatz, very good for lunch and dinner as well, skillful French sommelier, very good wine list
