Description: "German gastronauts are well aquainted with the interior of Vendôme, the famously 3-Michelin-starred restaurant located inside the Grand Hotel Schloss Bensberg in Cologne. The restaurant itself look like a rather well kept Prada store, understated and chic with splashings of sage green and discreet ruby red, and the glossy gourmet crowd are enamoured with the acclaimed menu created by super-chef Joachim Wissler. Star dishes include the calf's head in a parsley-horseradish vinaigrette wild celery and aioli of capers; the grilled saddle of lamb from Müritz with green olives in lamb tea and ricotta gnocchi; and the Manjari chocolate fondant with frozen blackberry foam. Vendôme boasts a 900+ wine list. "

“A1 - gourmet heaven!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2011

Finally i made to the Vendome of Joachim Wissler. What can i say. An experience that is among the best i ever had. Such a precision in cooking is outstanding. We enjoyed a 7 course menu:
cocktail of cucumber-lime-foam over mandarine juice and sake mandarine filets
black angus beef 'rossini' with goose liver spread and perigord truffle vinaigrette
coquilles st jaques carpaccio with pumpkin on gingerbeer lemonade
Ravioli with mascarpone and truffels
seatongue with green curry and shrimps
hare with chestnust pancake, brussels sprout leaves and argan oil
choclade cake with beetroot varieties
for the wine we had:
Bruno Paillard Blanc de Blanc 1999
Othegraven, Riesling GG Kanzemer Altenberg 2008
Georges Vernay,Condrieu "Les Terrasses de l'empire" 2008
Auguste Clape Cornas 1993
Egly Ouriet Rose Grand Cru NV
wine list is fairly priced for what you get.
a MUST GO if you are around and do not fear the sum you will pay :)
