BAUHAUS RESTAURANT IS NOW OPEN
The highly anticipated Bauhaus Restaurant has opened to offer a new style of German cuisine created by Michelin Star Chef, Stefan Hartmann.
Over the past decade Hartmann has worked in some of Europe’s most notable Michelin Star restaurants and has caught the attention of food critics all over the world. Tim Adams leads the operations at Bauhaus as General Manager. Tim was instrumental in managing England’s most prestigious establishments including Kensington Palace, Tower of London and Hampton Court Palace. He’s also hosted many high profile guests including the Prime Minister, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Her Majesty the Queen and members of the Royal Family.
Behind Bauhaus is Uwe Boll, who many know from his film career. However, it is Boll’s personal interests in international cuisine that led him to bring high‐end food products, such as Casa Gusta olive oil, to Canada for many years. His passion for exceptional food and ingredients is the inspiration for this endeavor.
The new restaurant boasts 100 seats with a large open concept kitchen, personal Chefs table, private dining room, and wine room.
