A New Star in Munich’s Culinary Sky

A New Star in Munich’s Culinary Sky


Munich, 08th of January 2018 – The renowned Michelin Guide awarded one of its sought-after stars to Munich’s Schwarzreiter Restaurant, set in the beautiful Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten Kempinski. Opened just two years ago, Schwarzreiter is now one of the twelve starred restaurants in the Bavarian capital. Munich born Executive Chef Anton Pozeg, who took the culinary helm of the Schwarzreiter in June of this year, is impressing guests with his “Young Bavarian Cuisine.” Based on regionality and innovative lightness, it took Chef Pozeg and his team just weeks to convince the inspector from the prestigious restaurant guide that his vision deserved a star.
Pozeg worked at the Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten Kempinski Munich as the Executive Sous-chef between 2010 and 2012 before returning home in 2017. In the interim, he treated the guests of the Palais Hansen Kempinski in Vienna with his creations, garnering his first Michelin star as well as 16 Gault & Millau points. The menu of the Schwarzreiter brims with local produce from regional suppliers, putting an emphasis on light indulgence by forgoing opulent side dishes. According to Chef Pozeg, “It is very important to me that we cook ingredients from Bavaria, for Bavaria.”
The tantalizing creations on the menu range from filet of char with regional potatoes, savoy cabbage and almonds; buckwheat spätzle (regional pasta specialty) with spinach, root bacon and Wertacher goat cheese (both ingredients are regional fortes) to knuckle of veal with sauerkraut, pear and black pudding.

To round off the delights, desserts such as pumpkin with white chocolate and mace beckon. Sommelier and restaurant manager Andrej Grunert is responsible for choosing the complementing wines. The name of the restaurant derives from the arctic char which is found in alpine lakes and smoked over a wood fire - one of the favorite dishes of King Ludwig II. Known as the Bavarian fairy-tale king, he was also the son of King Maximilian II, who commissioned the building of the Grandhotel Vier Jahreszeiten Munich. Today, the name Schwarzreiter pays homage to glamour and lightness, paired with outstanding food and beverages with a dash of Munich’s flair. The Schwarzreiter Tagesbar is open from Monday to Sunday, 12 noon until 12 midnight, the restaurant itself from Tuesday to Saturday, 6.30pm to 11pm.
