Bib Gourmand in Hamburg
The simple, elegant interior design of the Tschebull restaurant in the heart of the city centre is broken up by a well-measured dose of kitsch from the Alps. Here, guests can enjoy a modern and contemporary reinterpretation of Austrian cuisine. The kitchen focusses on selected ingredients and intense aromas rather than complex compositions, and most of the wines are from Austria, too.
