Restaurant 1683, a tribute to Gaggenau‘s 333rd anniversary year, is the first in a series of events of a three-year campaign. With a four-night pop-up at the Chelsea Art Beam gallery, the restaurant brings a epicurean journey to the brand´s origin, to Manhattan.


The invite-only experience starts with a trip 333 years back. Guest are greeted in an entry with a ceiling height 3-dimensional cut out of a Black Forest chalet cuckoo clock flanked by three ladies in traditional costume.


Stepping through time, the guests are lead to a cocktail reception. Reminiscent of a blacksmith shop, the setting is completed by a real blacksmith. The fire and the hammering as he forges nails, culminates in the presence of the contemporary Gaggenau EB 333.


The main chapter of the dinner starts as the guests step through a black curtain to see a floor to ceiling waterfall which encircles them as they pass through a short corridor of mirrors.


The guests find themselves midst of a Black Forest setting, with the soothing sounds of rushing water and intermittent chirping of woodland birds. The air is cool and misty, the room dark with streaks of light cutting through tall trees, smells of rich soil and wood wrap you; a surreal forest that feels a thousand miles away.


Bedded in moss, six dinning stations find their place within the forest. Here the chefs prepare a menu wich marries the rich, earthy flavours of the Black Forest. Under the culinary direction of three Michelin star Chef Daniel Humm food is prepared right in front the plates and immediatly enjoyed.
