A sensorial journey of epicurean passion.
New York/Munich, September 2016: Gaggenau presents an unforgettable series of exclusive epicurean experiences to stir and delight the senses. With Restaurant 1683, Gaggenau will bring together innovative technology, inspiring design and the world’s top chefs, in an artful setting. Marking the year the brand was founded, Restaurant 1683 debuts with a four night event in New York City’s Chelsea neighborhood. Satellite pop-ups are planned in other U.S. cities over the next three years.
Over September 26–29, three Michelin star chef Daniel Humm and restaurateur Will Guidara of Eleven Madison Park welcomed guests into an immersive sensory experience. Their acclaimed team created cuisine inspired by Gaggenau’s spiritual home, the Black Forest in Germany. Chef Bryce Shuman and General Manager Eamon Rockey of Betony, even rejoined Humm’s team for just two nights. Guests of the invite-only experiences were treated to the most sought after reservations of the season.
