Tim Mälzer, a famous german chef cook, opened his latest restaurant, 'Die gute Botschaft' ('Good News') in Hamburg on the Alster in the autumn of 2016. Tim's latest recipes are created in the approximately 270sqm experimental laboratory.
Tim's kitchen is a real eye-catcher, and presented quite a challenge for the architects of the mo.studio in Meerbusch. The presentation of the kitchen block in the middle of the kitchen is spectacular - like an altar, lit by a golden ceiling of lights, made with HOMAPAL Goldtone metal decor.
Together with Tim Mälzer, Lars Reynolds of mo.studio created a flowing transition from the entrance via the takeaway & cafe area and past the cooker into the guest section, where the seating is loosely arranged along the rounded facade. Curved walls and ceiling sails subtly add architectural space. The view of the functionally styled prep kitchen is open; the idea being that everyone should be able to see where the "good news" is made.
The restaurant serves up themed offers and pop-ups such as 'Hotdogs mit Champagner', 'Rinderwahn' and 'Alles Käse' in the shape of cakes. Since June 2017, the restaurant has also been open in the evenings on Thursdays to Saturdays. The hot dishes tend to be hearty and down-to-earth, and the meat comes from a butchery in Eimsbüttel. Like all the other foods here, everything is sustainably produced.
A visit to Tim Mälzer's restaurant 'Die gute Botschaft' is of both culinary and architectural interest.
