Dinner, or actually dinners, as I came back again a couple of nights later, at ⭐️⭐️ @biancrestaurant in Hamburg where chef/proprietor @ferrantino.matteo Matteo Ferrantino has recently reopened after lockdown restrictions have been significantly eased here in Germany.
After two ‘nice’ but fairly pedestrian meals in Hamburg at ⭐️⭐️Haerlin and ⭐️Le Canard Nouveau this made a very welcome change with some exceptionally tasty dishes based around Matteo’s Mediterranean background. He’s Italian and had previously worked in Spain and Portugal for a number of years as well as UK and Austria so you can really see this kaleidoscope of influences front and centre on each plate. Indeed you can sometimes even name check a specific restaurant. For example, the corn and foiegras dish screams Disfrutar at you, as does a thin crisp crustaceans ‘tortilla’ though to a lesser extent, and a spherified liquid centre olive makes an appearance as it does now at restaurants across the world in some form or other thanks to El Bulli and the Adria brothers.
People who know me and my eating habits will know that I am very much led by the ‘experience’ as well as the food. So a sombre though note perfect ⭐️⭐️⭐️ meal at L’Ambroisie or Les Prés d’Eugénie isn’t really what floats my boat (*somewhere Andy Hayler’s head explodes), although I do recognise those kind of restaurants as good and worthwhile reference points for someone who likes to explore food and restaurants as much as I do.
That said, I had a great ‘experience’ at Bianc. Fantastic food and service 👌
