TIMEHOUSE > PARIS IN 30 MINUTES!
Paris has never been so easy to reach – just 30 taxi minutes is all that separates TIMEHOUSE from a genuine piece of Parisian hospitality.
Known as the “crazy Frenchman”, over the past few years Loic Cantegrel has made a name for himself that extends well beyond the city limits of Munich. The Parisian-born artist has done something no other has been able to do, his L’ADDRESS 37 has brought the flair of the French capital to the Munich Westend.
The “crazy Frenchman” looks back on many years of experience as a chef and head chef – his last job was as chef in the world-famous Hôtel Costes in Paris – before coming to Germany, bringing only a set of knives and not a single word of German to open his first restaurant here in Munich just over a decade ago.
From the very first minute – back when he was located in the Haidhausen district of Munich – the clear focus of L’adress 37 lay on uncomplicated French cuisine with a modern twist. Loic’s restaurant – or his “neo bistro francais” as he prefers to call it – stands for a relaxed living room atmosphere with an international ambiance and surprises with coolness instead of the customary white tablecloths and frogs’ legs – the cliché of any French restaurant.
After 10 successful years, L’adress 37 moved at the end of 2016 from old guard Haidhausen to the up-and-coming, cool Westend. Here, Loic’s kitchen creations continue to impress with their quality and attention to detail – first-class dishes are offered without great fanfare, giving good value for money in a relaxed atmosphere.
Sustainability and the use of predominantly regional and seasonal products are just as important to the Parisian as creative, culinary trends and a monthly changing menu.
Classical dishes – yes. Classic dishes – no.
Signature dishes have also evolved over the years in the L’adress 37, of course, such as the Fondant de Boeuf with a chocolate and red wine sauce. Meat so ultra-tender it falls apart on the fork, melting in the mouth to give the guest a delightful momentary experience of “living like a king”. But even beyond such classical dishes as the beef stew described above, the Frenchman’s cooking skills are impressive: many dishes are prepared using the sous-vide cooking method, which retains a lot of the flavour and produces a more intense taste. The small, but meticulously compiled menu is as diverse as the French metropolis of Paris can ever be and offers guests the opportunity to compile a menu between two and four courses to suit their personal tastes.
Urban jungle, industrial chic, Munich’s first fully visible kitchen and a large helping of Parisian coolness make the mix
Creativity was also paramount when redesigning the L’adress 37. The result is a culinary and stylish hotspot within Munich’s top gastronomy. The 40-seat restaurant visually separates itself into a fine dining area on the left with signature floral and velvet upholstery, while the right-hand side faces the bar and offers additional seating. Ideal for those who prefer a more informal atmosphere and appreciate the bistro charm of this industrial chic area. The open-plan studio kitchen is at the heart of it all. Completely visible from all sides, it increases the anticipation for diners who can watch while they partake of one of the exclusive, top French wines from the wine list.
The contours of the interior are drawn in metal and wood, the Art Nouveau column behind the bar, the black French tiles in the bar area and many other small details transport guests into the very heart of Paris. Continuing the theme, the guest area in the rear courtyard garden also offers a further 38 seats for lunch and dinner. The lighting, interior decoration and atmosphere create a heady blend, inviting you to forget where you are on balmy summer evenings. Munich or Paris? Paris in Munich?
It doesn’t matter… It’s something not to be missed!
