Pageou restaurant in Munich, Germany
Top chef Ali Güngörmüş made his name as head chef at the Michelin-starred restaurant Le Canard Nouveau in Hamburg and today is also a well-known TV chef. Güngörmüş’s new restaurant, Pageou, located in the Fünf Höfe shopping mall in Munich’s city centre, is named after the East Anatolian village where he was born in 1976. The chef has thrown his heart and soul into this new venture, which features sophisticated Mediterranean cuisine prepared using simple, high-quality ingredients. These dishes are served in a restaurant that is open, inviting and timeless, and which has been tastefully decorated by interior designer Nora Witzigmann. The lofty, light-filled space prominently features Thonet’s iconic S 64 cantilever chair, designed by Marcel Breuer at the end of the 1920s. In total, there are 34 of these stained black armrest chairs with natural-coloured canework placed throughout the restaurant.
