Munich is paradise for lovers of very rich, homemade Bavarian food. But if you don’t feel like comfort food every time you would like to eat traditionally there is much less choice. Goldmarie (a character in a fairy tale by the Grimm Brothers) is a little treasure chest for alpine inspired food and wine and I just love their elegant but not fancy interpretation – which luckily comes without any loss of comfort.
The same recipe is used for the interiors which are simple but cosy using traditional materials and taking them to a contemporary level by using light instead of dark wood in combination with lots of white.
Other great things about Goldmarie are that, wherever possible, they cook seasonally with locally produced organic ingredients and that the menu of the day, with sometimes unusual dishes, changes frequently. The portions are sometimes not huge which I think suits the concept of elegance so if you arrive very hungry you might want to think about also ordering a starter or a small side dish.
For lunch you get away without making a reservation but in the evening booking is recommended. There are a few nicely designed (and nicely priced) rooms available above the restaurant if you don’t feel like travelling home far.
