The new restaurant “Laurushaus”, located in the former tithe barn, opened in May 2016. In Laurushaus, our Head Chef Erika Bergheim, who has been with Schloss Hugenpoet since 1997 and already won our establishment a Michelin star, presents gourmet cuisine with a modern twist. Her emphasis is on high-quality produce and unpretentious presentation. Guests may wish to indulge in a seven to ten-course menu, including dishes such as marinated fjord trout with horseradish, caviar, apple, hazelnut and radish or lobster and rabbit with Caesar salad, baby beets and black cumin. Alternatively, guests may order à la carte.
Equally as important as the dishes are the wines in Laurushaus, which are selected by restaurant director and sommelière Carla Veenstra. Known to many guests from her time in the legendary restaurant “Im Schiffchen”, Carla Veenstra not only has a knack for the perfect pairing of food and wine, she is also very proud of Germany’s first Louis Roederer vinothèque.
Direct contact between guests and the kitchen and service staff is warmly welcomed. The restaurant has seating for 20 guests. Visitors can see into the kitchen from a long table seating up to ten in the light-drenched conservatory. In the summertime, the terrace invites diners to indulge in hours of relaxation. A smoker’s room on the upper floor is open to connoisseurs of exclusive tobacco products.
