The chef at Le Chef is well known TV-cook Meta Hildebrand. She obviously loves daring gestures, be it dyeing her hair a fiery red, adorning her restaurant with purple walls and women with moustaches or composing her menu surprise - which we can recommend. Her so-called evergreens also sound rather daring, like baked tomato soup with vanilla oil. Ingredients are dazzlingly fresh, usually locally sourced and combined to maximise their qualities. In memory of the notorious former chef Fred Tschanz there is a stroganoff on the menu, in case you fancy something more classical. Good food but not inexpensive. Smoker’s lounge with service.
