The food’s quality is enormous and the carte is, with vegan and meat dishes, very modern. I tasted the very well spiced potato soup and Marc had chosen the homemade meatballs with a potato-tomato-courgette-salad. All in all the bistro is perfect for a little arty Sunday lunch in the heart of Frankfurt. You can choose a small order or large helpings – like your belly would like to have.
Welcome to a very new section on Mode Faucon! In the brand new category named PLACES, which you’ll find under the header from now on, I’ll present you a very stylish place or location – wherever I’m at – once in a month. Eating is (after fashion of course) one of my big and favorite hobbies. Food can be healthy but also very pretty and while I’m a very art-loving person always looking for aesthetic, it’s such a huge benefit
to eat super tasty and awesomely beautiful food. A standard for every starred chef and haute cuisine restaurant but as we are students, our budget is not that high. So I’d like to share with you guys Marc’s and my experiences on our culinary expedition.
The march location’s name is: MARGARETE. A very, very beautiful name which actually means „pearl“ but always reminds me on my mommy (it’s her name too) and these cute small white flowers with a yellow spot in the middle. But in fact, Margarete Schütte-Lihotzky (an architect from Vienna) is the restaurant’s namesake. I didn’t hear her name before but after reading quite amazing facts about her, I definitely should have! She was the first women ever finishing her degree in Austria and the inventor of the world-famous Frankfurter Küche (a special type of built-in-kitchens).The interior design is inspired by architectural views of Margarete Schütte-Lihotzky but reinterpreted. She wanted a separation of enjoyment and working spaces and MARGARETE involves the „working“ kitchen into the „enjoyment“ of eating in the dining room. The latter includes a bistro in the front with a gigantic bookshelf, cozy lounge furniture mixed up with tables and chairs and a room called Fenster zur Stadt (an alternating gallery for interesting exhibitions). In the back you’ll find the restaurant where you can eat gorgeous menus in the evening.
