Martin Müller new Culinary Director at Restaurant Simplicissimus
The renowned restaurant Simplicissimus in Heidelberg, which has been leased from the Hotel Zum Ritter St. Georg since March 2016, will reopen after the vacation with a new team under the direction of Martin Müller. The Austrian Martin Müller will in future be responsible as Culinary Director for the entire F&B area of the Hotel Zum Ritter, as well as the management of the Simplicissimus restaurant. As a trained chef, hotel business economist and sommelier, the 52-year-old brings a lot of experience from the top gastronomy with him. At the age of 25 he was already working as sous chef under the patronage of Émile Jung in the legendary 3-star restaurant “Le Crocodil” in Strasbourg. Other career stations include the position of Executive Chef at the gourmet restaurant Hotel Adlon Berlin, the 5-star Hotel Balance Resort in Austria, where he was awarded the title “Wellnesskoch des Jahres 2006”, the Hotel Kulm in St. Moritz, and the Hotel Bachmair am See, 5-star superior hotel in Rottach-Egern.
“We are pleased that Martin Müller has decided to become the new culinary face of the Hotel Zum Ritter St. Georg and the Simplicissimus,” says Gerald Berger, Managing Director of Castlewood Hotels und Resort Deutschland GmbH, to which both locations belong.
The Simplicissimus restaurant, which has already made gourmet history in the last 20 years and was the first to acquire a Michelin star in Heidelberg, has since been managed by Felix Kersten, who received 15 points. With Martin Müller and his new team, they are building on this already high culinary level, with the next star in their sights for Heidelberg.
