The five-star airport now has a sixth star, so to speak, thanks to Mountain Hub Gourmet at the Hilton Munich Airport.
Set between Terminals 1 and 2, the Hilton Munich Airport is a luxury experience for travellers unlike most. Your layover is as glam as it gets, replete with a light-filled atrium and dotted with 60-foot-tall palm trees that provide much-needed O2 in the Nightflight Bar.
When it comes to fine dining, there’s the trusty Mountain Hub Gourmet. Already renowned by lovers of luxury modern dining, the restaurant has now managed to snag a Michelin star as well. Led by Chef Stefan Barnhusen and his team, the award has left them all absolutely thrilled.
For the airport, that’s already bagged several awards for quality of stay and service, this is the sixth star, so to speak. Munich Airport CCO Andersson says, “With this award, our airport is the only airport in Europe to offer such culinary high flights to the stars.”
With this award, Germany finally has yet again a Michelin-starred restaurant at an airport – which comes only six months after the reopening of Mountain Hub Gourmet. Straight off the bat, 33-year-old chef Stefan Barnhusen has impressed his guests with modern-international cuisine once again. Previously, the chef has worked at Jellyfish in Hamburg and also under Chef Christian Jürgens at the three-starred Seehotel Überfahrt, Lake Tegernsee.
Commenting on the occasion, Markus Hussler, the general manager of Hilton Munich Airport added his certainty that the Michelin star will further raise the restaurant’s profile and highlight the gastronomic diversity and quality at Munich Airport.
Food at this restaurant is pretty as a picture, garnering eyeballs and having people making a stop almost mandatorily. You can’t miss some of the signature items like the Balfegó bluefin tuna with wasabi and caviar. The courses are highly appealing and arranged with great attention to detail, which means that a star at this juncture was highly anticipated. The restaurant was also praised by Michelin for its ambience and creativity.
Jost Lammers, CEO of Munich Airport, says, “The fact that we at Munich Airport now boast a Michelin-starred restaurant is great news for the airport and its guests. We wholeheartedly congratulate the chef and the management of our Hilton Hotel on this great success. For our Munich Airport, the first European “Five-Star-Airport,” this award is in a way the sixth star.”
