The summer of 2019 brought great news for Cologne’s culinary scene: Eric Werner, formerly Germany’s youngest two-star chef, opened his first own restaurant Astrein. The menu features classic dishes that are prepared with a lot of care; a tasty cuisine that comes across as light and open-minded at the same time.
Just as with his menu, Werner omits all superfluous frills in the interior of his restaurant: Simple elegance dominates and warm colors create a cozy atmosphere. The only exception is the extravagant colorful jungle wallpaper from a friendly group of monkeys observes guests while they dine.
“My aim is to create premium meals and offer professional service without being aloof.” Eric Werner
