Munich: Review of Dallmayr Restaurant

Dallmayr Restaurant (not the cafe by the same name) is nothing short of fantastic. My husband and I went there for lunch and were treated to some of the best food I have ever eaten in Europe. It was fresh, perfectly prepared, and beautifully presented. Let me tell you about my favorite course, the foie gras. It was served with a nectarine ravioli and lavender-scented foam. Not only was the foie gras perfectly seared, the ravioli was a stroke of genius. The faintly sweet dough was silken and when I bit into it, the burst of flavor from the ripe nectarine was a delight. It was a perfect compliment to the foie gras. Seriously, I have had foie gras many, many times and it has never been as imaginatively and competently prepared, nor presented so beautifully. I was so impressed that I came again for lunch the next day just to experience the dish again. I had to see if it was one of those time-and-moment happenings that can’t be replicated. I was not disappointed. Chef Diethard Urbansky was able to produce the magic two days in a row.

The meal for two was 309 Euros, including wine. It was well worth it. I recommend you try this restaurant. It outshines Schubeck's by far, and even Tantris, IMO.
