An impromptu dinner at Handwerk in Hannover, Germany. Having researched on the ViaMichelin site where might be interesting to eat, I was heading to the only 1⭐️ Ole Deele. Upon arrival in Hannover, and after already travelling for 90 minutes on two trains it became clear that Ole Deele is not in-fact in Hannover but 16 km and another two trains or super expensive taxi outside the city. My own fault for not checking. The only other 2⭐️ was fully booked so after a little digging around on the Internet I came upon this place.
The michelin guide gave this place a 🍽 (indicating ‘good cooking’) again last week and describes it as a refreshing and youthful concept which combines creative modern cuisine, a smart and trendy bistro atmosphere and relaxed but accomplished service providing a personal touch. I can’t really argue with that description. The team were indeed young and the service very friendly and competent. The head chef was absent on my visit but the young sous, Martin Hartwig, handled himself very well. The cooking was excellent and I have had many lesser meals in restaurants that hold 1⭐️ Michelin.
One early pre-menu dish of a simple langoustine tail was of a standard where had I been served it in a 3⭐️ I would not have thought twice. It will almost certainly make my ridiculous ‘best dishes of the year’ list I’m sure.
So if you find yourself in Hannover then try to pay this little bistro a visit.
