   "The restaurant Mirabelle is my last one, let´s hope!" laughs the prestigious French      Chef Stephane Seddick when I interviewed him today in the outside garden. "My            first French  restaurant in Regensburg was Le Marmiton, which I loved yet it didn´t have a                garden outside and the Germany people love the gardens! Now I have Mirabelle since 2004."

  "I am from France, near Lyon, and learned my training in France. I worked in America, actually about 4 years in Los Angelos and loved it, worked in Santa Monica, which is a beautiful city, too. When I came back to Germany, I also worked in the Goldener Lowe, which I truly loved working in that restaurant. Now, my last baby is the Mirabelle. I guess I should say that it is both better being my own boss and not so much!" he laughs. "It is more pressure and stress in the kitchen, and I have to learn to control my French temperment of having perfection since I love my team and I don´t want to lose them!" he says laughing again. "It took me a long time to find the right team and it is definitely a team effort. I can say that I have to love what I do. You have to love being a chef, or it is too difficult of a job to do for very long and I have been doing it 45 years! Wow I can´t believe that either. I guess the reason I am full of energy is that I have learned that my leash is my kitchen. Not my customers.  I don´t come to the tables and sit. I present my food. My guests are my guests, and at the same time they are my bosses. You know, they have to love my food and it has to be presented with the highest quality for my guests to continue coming back. So, in essense they are my bosses!" 
   "It is a select menu, not so big, and definitely French with the entire card being my signature. I would love to think that the guests come because of me, and that is true since sometimes they say, "Where is the chef, Stephane?" Although my team can make any item on my menu and present it the way that I do since I have trained each of the chefs, the guests still complain! "We want Stephane as the chef.  So, I try not to show my face in the kitchen!" he laughs at that. "My team is very good." Ähnliches Foto
  "My restaurant´s specialty is meat, with essentially 4 to 5 meat entrees. It always has one fish entre and if people want to eat fish, they can eat that one. The reason is I insist on the freshest fish and it is sometimes difficult to do several fish plates. I can always find one good one, though."

  "It is more difficult to make French cooking because of the basic reason some of the sauces are very involved.   My passion is  to create the sauce and although every chef can do the same sauce, they all taste a little bit different and that is what makes a great chef," says Stephane. "You know everything is fun to start with and you must take the material that you have and shape it. Give life to it. I do classical cuisine bourgeoisie and more modern presentations. Every recipe at Mirabelle is original, though and mine. I do peak sometimes and if I take a fancy I will tweak a dish and watch the person that ordered it taste. It is my creation each and every time and it is personal, as if you are at dinner at my home. So, yes after all these years of course I care very much about each person and the plate." 
    "Everyday is different. Mostly each person is different and we do have regulars that dine here. It is of the highest quality at very reasonable prices and so they come frequently. And yes it is fun, too to have the tourists visit and compliment me, my team and my restaurant."

        The restaurant Mirabelle is beautiful Very beautiful and very French in its decor. I compliment Stephane a couple of times on it since it is such a gorgeous place physically. "Thankyou very much," he says. "I rarely talk to the guests, though, since I am very busy in the kitchen and it is such a responsibility to keep up the standards. My wife and team talks to the guests and they always let me know about the response." You will love the restaurant, the team and the food, especially. The wine, is, of course, French! And of the highest quality, yet the menu is very reasonable. I hope you enjoy the experience as much as I do. 

                 The Master Chef Entreprenuer, Mattia Kreutzer, on the stage at Kreutzers!

              "The range of beef we have is of the highest quality in the world, such as U.S. Beef from Nebraska(Omaha), Wagyu, Fassona, Irish Hereford,  Mittelmeerfische und Krustentiere. The prices reflect that too!" laughs the Master Chef and owner, Mattia. "I am always surprised when people make reservations and say that they are driving 70 kilometers or more just to eat dinner here. The guests know the beef type that they want and the weight in grams every time. They are very educated when it comes to my menu. I guess when you pay that much you probably know what you are eating!" ps...Kobe Wagyu Beef can come to 1,000 euros per kilo! Enjoy! 
   When the guests come to Kreutzers(usually a 10 day reservations-in-advance guest!) they dress for their special night out, and their favorite treat is watching the chef prepare the meat on the grill on the island right in front of them. "Yes they always want to say hi to the chef and I allow the guests to walk into the kitchen to meet the kitchen chef, too!" says Mattia.
                      RESERVATIONS IN ADVANCE PLEASE. 0049 0941 5 69 565 020
Kreutzer´s is to Regensburg as Mortons is to New York and Chicago along with the famous Chop House in Chicago, or Smith & Wollensky in London. The highest quality of beef available in a elegant beautiful restaurant.
Does Mattia eat Wagyu Kobe steak everyday?  He laughs, "About once in a while, I love it, yet it is a very deep rich meat, so if you have it one day the next you can choose something different since we have lobster and prawns and great seafood, too, that we grill over the charcoal grills, that is what we are famous for. There is only about 10 places in Germany that have the charcoal grills.  Kreutzer´s is famous for the charcoal grill and the best meat. And I hope that they are entertained with me as I prepare it for the guests!""You know it takes many years to earn a respected reputation such as we have at Kreutzers," starts the funny interview with the head Boss, Mattia. "I have had my restaurant in Regensburg 30 years and of the last 8 here at the location at Prinz-Ludwig-Strasse 15. Every year I strive for perfection and to find around the world the rarest and the best meat. I believe the website shows the quality that we have and you can judge for yourself."

 And although the Riemhofer´s have a 
elegant business, with mostly the international food of the Haus Heuport, Wolfgang says that he wants his more relaxed family restaurant to be very affordable with good Bavarian food.                                                                       Bildergebnis für catering riemhofer

Besides great homey atmosphere to try the Bavarian food, a lovely outside Beer Garden and the Kneitinger Beer, they have a very cool playground in the backyard of the Gasthaus where adults and children can play, and do, since I stayed here around Christmas and the adults were playing on the swings til midnight!
"The Kneitinger Beer is very well-known for many years and mostly the locals come to drink the beer. I want my restaurant to be a local restaurant where the Regensburg people can come and eat their traditional food at a affordable price. We have a get to know the neighborhood, although tourists are welcome, event all day on Sunday and while I am introducing my great chefs, I want that to be the remembrance of the event. We have great food and high quality Bavarian food," says Wolfgang.

And I am a very picky eater, except when it comes to sweets, so I can tell you that my pulled pork burger is the best. And their fries are sweet. I wanted to keep eating, yet I tried to be a lady...difficult when you love to eat a lot of food! 
  I can attest to the fact that at Alter Schlachthof Restaurant and Hotel, the rooms are great, the building beautiful with traditional sturdy glossy wood Bavarian booths and tables, the bar totally traditional and cool and the beer great. It´s Kneitinger, after all, one of Regensburg´s 3 biggest breweries. However, the new Chef of the Alter Schlachthof has many famous years as chef of one of the most respected elegant restaurants opposite the Dom St Peter Cathedral, the, Haus Heuport in Regensburg. 
     The Hotel and the Restaurant are of the heavy wood Bavarian style furniture and the restaurant especially is very cozy and family oriented. I love the warm feel to it, as if you are inside a elegant beer garden with great food!

             "What I loved most about my visit of my wife Ranska and me to Bosnia," says Alen, and I interrupt him saying, "O my gosh you went to Boston...did you go to Harvard..." to which he laughs and says, "BOSNIA, not Boston..." Okay the conversation starts and as usual I am so happy to chat about America! 
    Yet he tells me, "I said Bosnia, and we found a great wood furniture store that manufactures in Serbia. My partner, David, and I decided to do a restaurant based on Mediterranean and very original rare artisan wood designs. From tables to wine cabinets. We thought to do a restaurant and to showcase all the wood products, of which you can purchase in the restaurant."                                                                                        
                    Food and Wood of Regensburg at  Domplatz 3.

     "The idea is to give the highest quality of fresh Mediterranean food with the highest quality artisan wood products made in a family atmosphere in Serbia. The quality is of the highest in both, yet the prices are incredible," explains David, (his wife Natalia) and who along with his partner Alen and Alen´s wife Ranska, own Food and Wood. "I want a place and so does Alen, where we can eat the highest quality food of exotic presentation and quality. We couldn´t find that perfectly in Regensburg. We found a little of that or something on our travels, yet here we made the restaurant where we can eat everyday." 
Image may contain: dessert and food                         Alen and David have interesting stories, especially since David owns the SUD club and the famous SCALA club of Regensburg at least 20 years now. "Yes, along with a nightclub in a church where the city bought the church and we put the dance club in it, and the Helga club which is below us  and we are seriously considering making it a exclusive 30 and above members only club where you can enjoy privacy and elegance. Regensburg doesn´t have a exclusive members only club either. Me and my wife love to eat good. We love to have a nice glass of wine with friends. You can do that here. That is the future segwaying into a older crowd." 
        Image may contain: text and food
   "The concept of showcasing original old oak unique wood designs, from the worn tables and chairs to the wine cases to the boards that we serve the food on, is our own original idea. I hope that guests come to eat and enjoy the mediterranean food and to say, "O wow I love that wine cabinet, can I buy the wine cabinet and the gift wood boxes and I say that yes. Every wood item is for sale in the restaurant."" says David.

  "My wife is trained with chefs and doing her own recipes, she didn´t go to a classically trained gastronomy school. Yet her menu is lovely and unique and exotic. We Love it," says Alen. His wife laughs and says, "I didn´t just whip up these recipes. Of course I have training. With the better chefs as we learn. And the recipes are my recipes along with others. I love to cook and I am very happy that you love my food!" Image may contain: food
  "Natalia and I have twins, and that is the most difficult job ever. I have owned some of the most popular nightclubs in Regensburg the last 20 years, including SUD club and Scala, which I still own. NOTHING compared to having twins. One time, when they were 1-1/2 years I didn´t sleep yet 1 hour in 3 days. I told my wife I had to go sleep or I was going cuckoo crazy. I slept the day and night and when I came back I was a new person. Happy rested alive!" he says laughing. "Now it is better. They are 3, and while we build a older place such as the Food And Wood, which is better for a family than the nightclub scene, we grow together. Now it is fun. But twins to 1-1/2 years! O My Gosh!" he says. Image may contain: outdoor

   Alen says, "We come from Croatia which is the number one tourist destination last year. People are discovering the country and we have much beauty. Especially the seaside where we come from. The recipes and the types of mediterranean food we prepare is typical of my region. It is authentic food here, but I couldn´t say it is traditional Bavarian since it isn´t and we aren´t from Bavaria. That is the difference." 
            They have 25 items on the menu. 5 fish. 5 meat. 5 vegetarian. 5 desserts. 5 appetizers. 
                 "That is on purpose. And now the summer menu is changing to the winter menu."
    "Soon, we open up the other room adjacent to Food and Wood and we start a degustation menu. That one is about 140.euros and 7 courses and 7 wines. It is a VERY reasonable degustation menu and already we have parties booked for the Christmas holidays. I am VERY happy to be a restaurant guy now and phasing my old self out of the partying nightclubs of 20 years!" Laughs David.

                                       I have always been intriqued with the Scala Club since it seems
    very swanky and upscale and prestigious. "It is a very friendly club. I´m going to tell you the real
    secret of it. We have the lowest cover of any club in Regensburg. It is only 6.euros. And we are the
   only club where you can bring your coat and check it free. The only one. It has been that way                            forever. My clubs, if you check the pictures, bring a mixture of people and is especially friendly to us older folks. You know one of the reasons I am seriously wanting a member´s only club is that when I start being talked to with my guests as a respected elder, I know it is time to let my young people manage Scala and me do something else!" laughs David.                                                                       SAMSTAG $ 05.10.19 $ HYPNOTIZED

                                                                          Barock Bar 2015      
  "The Barock bar is 3 and 1/2 years old, and I am the one who owns it the last 4 months. I love my bar and I am hoping to have in the future people that come specifically to Regensburg to see me, not just to try to find a cocktail bar. I want it to have a great reputation as great cocktails, service and just a classy intimate bar. I hope people that come know cocktails and want to try mine and I appreciate people coming in a little tentatively, too, and feeling comfortable to ask me to help. I love making drinks for people that tell me what they do love in a good cocktail and the things that they don´t like," says Thomas, who along with his partner, Anne, have made Barock the classy 1930s decor bar that it is today. 
Bildergebnis für barock bar regensburg             "I would say that one of the things to notice that I have added is a higher quality of spirits to work with. We have these cool weathered leather aprons that a designer came in and sponsored my team and me with and it just adds to the charm and coziness of the bar. The light colored leather chairs give the bar a classic 1930s timeless feel and that is my idea, too," says Thomas as he explains the way he hopes people see his bar. "While it is my dream to make the Barock bar, which by the way is a play on words for the artistic period of Baroque style and the fact that it is a bar!" interjects Thomas, " It isn´t necessarily Anne´s dream." Anne shakes her head, "I don´t know what my dream is, I guess I am a entreprenuer and I am supporting Thomas with the fact that he knows what his dream is."
 Thomas says, "Yes, we think about the future and making our bar a respected and sought after place to have some classic cocktails in a quiet setting where people can remember the experience. Maybe opening the Renaissance Bar in the future. Another play on words!" Bildergebnis für Barock bar regensburg

 "I am a serious person concerning my goal to make a career and a life as the best mixologist that I can. I went to college to be a biologist and started working at a 5 star and loved it too much. When I told my father I wanted to own a bar, he supported me a little hesitantly with the fact that he understood I wanted to follow my passion, yet he wanted to be sure that is what I wanted to do. It is 6 months ago;  yes, that early, my mom said she is happy about my Barock bar," laughs Thomas. "We do have fun here. We are a great team. If some members of my team, and I must say team, since that makes the bar function smoothly and makes people have fun when everybody is working with each other, if they are inexperienced at bartending at first, I train them. It is more important for me to have a feel about somebody. Are they a good person and honestly want to learn? I hire that person."

"I have a audience for my bar and it is a expensive one, I guess. That is what people say. I believe it is just right. The drinks start from 9.00 euros and up. Yet they are very good cocktails." says Thomas. "People say that they look in the windows and the bar looks too expensive, yet it is a great bar. You can come in and have a glass of wine, or you can come in and have a expensive cocktail. Just come in and enjoy the bar, that is all I ask."

                  TONIGHT September 11, at Degginger Cultural Creative space and cafe: 
                                   JAM SESSION open mic and Pizza! named Pitarrenjam.
                                          Combining great music and pizza from 7:30pm to 22.00pm
  And to know the owner of the Great Cafe is Heiko  and Werner who  are both caring and culturally motivated entrepreneurs.
     "It is important for people to know, for instance that on Friday nights we always have something special in the terms of a great cocktail night. We have smoking Old-Fashions, for instance and the cocktails and bar atmosphere take a little long to make that night. Or on Wednesdays we always have live music and pizza, too," he says. "And while it is a cultural and artist working space, we want our guests to know that on certain nights they can come and be loud or have a great cocktail and talk with friends, or if a book reading is happening they need to know that too. You can find the entire schedule on the website." 
 Werner is a young Regensburger, "I studied Architecture and I apply that here on a monthly basis." he says, when I interview him today at the Funky totally Promotive Cultural Interactive Center in Regensburg. "Another architect built the bar yet I change it every month. And here it is challenging since we always have something going on. For instance we`ve a night of dancing named Swinging Coffee with the Andi's Bluesorchester, and we have live music on stage, and we have the mayor talking about important issues, that the community can come and join in on, and we have poetry readings and book readings. We even have a house jazz band, and we had a dance for Human Rights." "Alright we have two workshop spaces, on is the Pop-up room where anybody can just pop-up and start brainstorming and being creative and the other is a more formal room that the city government takes appointments for. In the Pop-up Room whatever you create you can exhibit and sell, such as arts and crafts, bicycles, etc. Whatever you make. You can work with several different people from the city, or university or just yourself." says Werner. "And while you're working you can order the Rehorik Coffee and something to eat. It is great!"
    Located right in the middle of the historic city of Regensburg Wahlenstraße 17 straight down the alley of Hacker Pschorr.
   "I love the fact that the Degginger is a cultural creative idea platform where emerging artists can meet with working industry people in the field of interest and they can create together. We have the Design Project now where you can see the entire process as it unfolds. From scribbling and doodling ideas to making small story boards and template people and materials needed boards, to the final project before it is implemented. The process you can see around on Degginger´s walls and in the rooms. Every couple of months it changes, for instance a filming project or a architectural project. The important idea is to support the creative artist and the cultural artist as his and her ideas come to fruition," says Werner, one of the two creative cafe design artists, who along with Heiko Rehorik own the coffee cafe in Degginger´s space.

    "We have a great Rave happening in a couple of days on September 15, too, named the PizzaRavem where you can eat as much pizza from 4.00pm to 8.00pm and Dance to Electro Rave music all at once. It is very funny since you see the electro music happening with the wild happy Rave dancers in the middle of the cafe of all ages, and the genteel folks having their coffee and cakes on the tables. It is lovely to see,"says Werner.

Okay. It has a very simple bar decor with seating outside where people often approach Christoph from the university asking to throw a event here.

They´re putting skateboards on the walls and I don´t know if they´re selling those skateboards or just showing them off!" he laughs and says, "it is a very simple and casual bar open to everybody." 
    Does he skateboard? I ask. "No,"! he laughs. "I love to ride horses and my girlfriend is a horse person!"

  "My brewery is a local one named, Eichhofener with lager helles, pils, hopfengarten(craft bier), dunkles, festbier and leichtes helles. It is a good beer, one of the best local ones and here you can have from 2.80 to 3.40. I  think that is a very good price and although I don´t´do fancy cocktails, it is a bar,  I have good Gin, Rum and Whiskey." he says. And by the way, you can do Jack Daniels on the rocks for only 5.00euros! 
    As we chat, Christoph takes a huge bag of peanuts and pours the peanuts in a big silver bucket, and he just puts huge piles right on the bar. "Food!" he says laughing. I try a couple of peanuts and he says, "just throw the peanuts on the floor!" Okay!Ähnliches Foto

   And while they don´t really have a teacup where you can wear your flapper dress and be yourself, you can wear your flapper dress and lounge on the comfortable couches hidden behind the bar. There is leather seats, worn with care and many hours of laughter and friendship and barstools to chat about life with Christoph who says he has many friends from America who invite him to visit and that his girlfriend actually learned horsemanship in America. Note to tourists that of course includes backpackers, I love visiting Regensburg University asking the students what their favorite drinking bar is, "Apotheke," is always the answer. They have cocktail bars and dance clubs, but the hangout is "Apotheke" and Why?

           BAR 13 in Regensburg located at Keplerstrasse 13Bildergebnis für bar 13 regensburg   You do know that the fabulous city of Regensburg is famous for the fact that they have
more bars per capita than any other city in Europe...that translates to about 1 bar for every 1,000 people, and includes babies and homey addition, they are all rare and special due to the fact that it is a Unesco heritage site city where some bars and structures are about 1,000 years old. A must see.
  One bar that is just a "normal" bar with a huge heart is the BAR "13" located at Keplerstrasse  13, of course.   No photo description available.
       For instance, tonight, on Thursdays and Mondays they have Kareoke. The students love it, the tourists love it and the locals love it. I chatted with a 30ish fellow at the bar who was eating a sandwich. "I´m a local and I can not sing. Yet I find it fun and a nice calm atmosphere and every Thursday I come here and listen to the entertainers sing. Some are professional and some are not. Yet everybody has fun. And my friends constantly try to have me drink and think that then I shall sing, but it ain´t going to happen!" 
               Okay, so some are listener´s on Kareoke night and some are performers!

    "The drinks are super reasonable and every day we have specials. We have long drinks tonight at   2 long drinks for 7.00 euros all night long. And that is probably the best in the city. That along with the fact that it is a nice comfortable easy place to meet friends, make new friends, meet the locals. We have young people and people of different ages. We have something to do for everybody and I personally loved the nice easy relaxed feeling of the bar. Which is why we bought "13"." says Karin! Image may contain: 1 person, smiling, indoor
 Image may contain: text "We have sports, the soccer or football as we say every Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday and if it is on we have it on Fridays, too." says Karin, who along with her young brother, Peter, bought the bar from the 15 year long nice guy named Stefan who had originally designed it along with his father. "I loved the bar and Stefan is actually a good friend of mine? Is that how you say? Good friend?' asks Karin as she says, "I haven´t spoken english in 5 years!" Yes I say a nice friend. "We´re keeping it the way it is with a couple of little touches of mine. We have the travelling "SING" Kareoke guy who travels in his car and brings the books and Kareoke equipment and he has so many songs that it is impossible not to find one you love." She asks my favorite song and I say it is "if you like pina coladas..." "Okay come in and sing it," she says! Or perhaps you can play fussball.Image may contain: 1 person, sitting

  While you are here please come to the breweries and drink beer!

At Spitalgarten, it has a tradition of longer centuries than any other brewing house in Regensburg since 1225! The family of Anton Sperger with his wife, Conny(Cornelia) pictured now own the beautiful 800 seating beer gardens and exquisitely awarded Bavarian traditional authentic restaurant. "We added the enormous kitchen last 2 years and the family run INN above the restaurant and people come now for all three, the beer, the kitchen and the inn!" I do need to mention a very fun event every month they now do, which is Bavarian Music live musicians every 1st Saturday of each month and please come to enjoy these fellows! "In addition, I had heard a great Italian band and I loved that band and I invited the Italian musicians to come and play on July 10th at the beer garden where we hope to serve a additional menu of Italian specialties. Of course it is up to our big chef, yet Anton says he is sure he will be happy to try it!"

  Alright, what can we eat at the award-winning Bavarian Restaurant where these risky young entreprenuers spent the last 3 years taking a 800 year restaurant and making it "the baby?" 
   "Along with the real traditional plates such as the tourists love of white sausages and boiled breast of the mung bull and osterreichisches Maisgockerl, you can try the Regensburger Wurstsalat or the Dreierlei Topferl, or try the specialties that they are now becoming famous for such as the white asparagus in hollandaise sauce, and the small potatoes and dinkel schnitzel."
    You know as long as you stay in Bavaria you should truly try some Bavarian food, right! ENJOY the award winning team of Spitalgarten! Image may contain: 4 people, people smiling, people standing
"It is Anton´s pet project of wanting to include a family fun INN and since it is only 13 cozy rooms, of which only the guests receive breakfast in the restaurant every morning with us, it is   manageable let´s say; doable!" And the view is right on the river, if you got any closer you would be swimming! 
  "Now the people come for the food whereas before it was only for the beer," they say laughing as I interviewed the lovely couple today at the Beer Gardens. The kitchen has allowed us to upgrade the quality of the food and for the year of 2019 we are the one and only restaurant in Regensburg to receive the prestigious award of Ausgezeichnete Bayerische Kuche and we received 3 diamonds, the highest award they give. We do only local Bavarian meats and cheeses and products and the bread is made near our home about 20 kilometers from here." And although it is funny now, "At first it was unbelievable since everyday while we renovated the kitchen, which took months and months, we would take home with us in a big van the cutlery and the dishes and wash these and bring these to the restaurant in the morning and that included all the food, too! Yes, looking back on the months where most people close for renovations, we stayed open. And yes, I am saying everyday!" Anton´s wife laughs when I ask if she is serious!

  Pulcinella Ristorante Pizzeria da Toni
is owned with two of the kindest and most honest people that I have ever met, Elton and Aida. I love both and including the little girls and the brown and ivory puppy!   At
Holzländestr. 2, Regensburg Germany

  "I love the fact that Elton had always dreamed of owning a restaurant that reflected the story and tradition of the Pulcinella, which is the mask of the Venetians that shows what is on the outside can sometimes hide inside the beauty and the mystery of the real person. It is used with pomp and formality." says Aida. 
   The meaning of the Pulcinella character is such that it is a classical character that is originally from the 17th century and has become a main character in the Neopolitan puppetry.
      The Pulcinella is geared to be the star and the voice of the people as the direct expression of the people of the Neopolitan period that is a lively and spirited.  
  "Elton loves changing the menu to seasonal items and fresh catches. Every month since day one, 12 months in a row, we change the menu. Every item is  handmade and cooked and fresh." says Aida. Image may contain: food
  "I love that my husband has found his dream. The food is great and handmade and we are number one in Regensburg for the Italian pizza, which is amazing after only one year. I am very proud of him and the guests love us, too. We are a family restaurant and our children are here playing, as Eme my older daughter and my 2 month old.

"Elton has a lovely story, I think. When he is first starting out near Rimini, Italy, he starts working for a restaurant that is very famous there named Pulcinella. It gave him his first start. 20 years he worked and dreamt that one day he shall have his own.Image may contain: foodToday it is around 1 year that we are here in the restaurant and Elton is making the great pizza that he makes that only he knows how. And today he makes the pizza for me, yet Elton makes better pizza for his guests!" says his beautiful wife, Aida. I love the pizza by the way, it reminds me of a famous pizza in a farm town near Chicago called Caps. I loved that pizza, full of cheese and loaded with greasy real pizza tastes and the best ever. Everybody loved Caps pizza. That is the way the pizza is here at Pulcinella! Image may contain: food

I don't care what the pizza looks like, I say. It is great! Homecooked and fresh and the family is the nicest, funniest as they constantly walk around and chat and show you the new baby!

  "At the first couple of years, I would do the music as a DJ softly and maybe a friend would ask to play a saxophone a couple of songs, for instance and the people would dance. Nowadays the government of Regensburg says that  you have to have a dance permit to do that. Now, I take that idea and say that perhaps my time in life is to do a raw organic food bar instead. Both me and my wife eat organic and healthy food at home and now I am giving that option to my guests. Starting the Jazz weekend which is July 19 and July 20, you can come to my Vinyl bar and eat real raw healthy options knowing that we prepare it for you. And we are calling the new facet of the Vinly bar the RAW FOOD RAW FUNK bar. That translates to the fact that on July 19 and July 20 you can come and hear me playing JAZZ DJ til 4.00am at VINYL and you can dance til 4.00am too!" says Mr. Smith as he and his wife enjoy a great breakfast of raw food and we sit and chat outside on the table together. Image may contain: one or more people and closeup

  "And to let you know, my bar is my idea and my concept and while it is true that everybody in Regensburg has their own concept of a cocktail bar, or tiki bar, or whatever they chose, mine is not really a cocktail bar. Mostly since in the beginning, I knew how to give you a beer and simple drinks. Now, I have many signature cocktails that I made myself with my own ingredients, all natural of course, since that is my personal philosophy and mine have say natural tea in the cocktails. People, I hope, love the friendliness and the happiness that we try to show when you enter the bar."

  What does it take to make your own signature on a bar in Regensburg, the city in Europe with the most unique bars per capita?  "It takes hard work, and the Vinyl bar that you see is made, literally, with my own hands. My father loved the sea and boats and the table to the right is made of a wood and a propeller! The bar I made with my own hands with wood. I am a DJ the last 20 years and I am the resident DJ here, yet, honestly, I never made a drink except at home in my life! I learned to be a bartender the very day that I opened. The first 2 years every bartender that I hired had never bartended in their life either! It is a casual and real and comfortable place to work and to come to." says Mr. Smith. Image may contain: indoor

I had never made a drink in my life for anyone other than me or friends. I opened the bar, did all the work myself and built the bar and the tables in 2 weeks and opened December 3. I made my first drink for a guest on December 3. It has been that way with my life! I take risks and I am always  happy that I took that risk!" says Mr. Smith and we all laugh and say that what is the absolute worse that could happen? I say that if I made a ceramic cup and bowl and nobody bought it that it is the same as if I never made it and so I might as well try and make it!

      The restaurant is located in Eilsbrunn, which from Regensburg is a number 27 Bus, at the Train Station, 12 minute ride. Easy to do. (09404 / 21 12)
        Regensburger Str. 3, 93161 Sinzing
       "People ask us why the food that we serve is traditional yet not of the 1600s recipes and I have a great reason why. A couple of years ago we all decided in Germany to test a white gloved librarian edition of the ancient cookings of the 16th century Wild Boar. Okay we thought, let's try it. We forgot that they had to use tons of vinegar and salt to preserve the meat back then. Which means that it is very sour with the vinegar since they used mega amounts of vinegar and salt. You squished up your nose when tasting it, trust me. Now we tweak it a little and it is much better, still traditional with my Great Grandparent's recipes, yet not 340 years old!" "My hardworking team preferred the modern traditional recipes and while we do use the 125 year old ones, we always try to find new recipes to test." 
      "How does it feel to be famous with the number one restaurant in the World?," Muk answers me, "I guess when you are the 11th generation, you are sorta used to it; however, I need to learn how to advertise the restaurant better. After all there is only one of a kind in the entire world, not to mention a couple of years since we had a Motion Picture filmed here named Adele Spitzeder, a famous bank loan shark in the 17th Century and they filmed two weeks in the wedding room and outside. That is totally cool, too. And we have Television specials focused on the restaurant and I have my own cooking youtube videos, and of course the museum upstairs that the educational groups visit." he says. O and if we forget to mention that his hobby is "Being a DJ at the big clubs in Regensburg on the weekends and weddings!" "The importance to me is the family and tradition and the fact that every item is homecooked and handmade. As you can see we spend hours just making the dumplings in the kitchen in the mornings for the big service starting at 5:00pm." says Muk.

"The legend is that in the early 1500s, the circus came to town. The innkeeper of the restaurant, The Brandl Bear, had to protect his restaurant. The bear owner came and tried to steal the restaurant owner's money and had the bear with him. The bear reared up and attacked the bear owner and chased the robber away! The Innkeeper and owner of the Brandl Bear decided to chain the bear outside the restaurant to scare away robbers. I guess it worked and hence the name." says Muk. I ask if it is true and he gives a mischievious smile, "It is as the legend says it is."

       The Dancing Bear is one of my favorite traditional restaurants and at the very experienced and capable hands of the Rohrl family of 11 generations who own the oldest restaurant in the World in Eilsbrunn, it has flourished since changing ownerships in 2013. "We have a great legend and I guess true story of the bear, do you want to hear it?" asks Muk when I see him at the totally awesome festival on June 24, at the restaurant. Of course I do says me...

"When I design of course as a Master Goldsmith sometimes the jewelry item that I am creating doesn´t exactly match the one I started to make. It all depends on the client. I have a idea that I start with and we work with each other. Mr. Mulbacher goes around the world to jewel shows and he chooses the stones. When he arrives back, he gives me the stones and tells me about each one. He tells me if he wants earrings made from such and such a diamond or a bracelet or necklace. I sketch what I imagine his vision is and he tweaks it a little. Sometimes he knows exactly what he wants and I make it. Or other times we work directly with the client that wants a custom ordered item," says the Master Goldsmith who I have had the pleasure of interviewing the last two years. It is fun to chat with him! 
   "Of course I love my job. I get to work with the most precious gems in the world and usually I can create my own vision of the gem´s best fitting. It is real fun to work with Mr. Mulbacher and I would definitely say that we are a great team here, " says the Master Goldsmith of Mulbachers!  Ähnliches Foto
I ask the Master Goldsmith if he travels around the world with Mr. and Mrs. Mulbacher buying the stones? He laughs, "That is Mr. Mulbacher´s job," he says, "I guess when you have 112 years and 4 generations of knowledge, and you are  a trained Goldsmith, you better be good at choosing the gems. Each Goldsmith is a designer in a sense and has his or her own style, such as the great fashion designers. Everybody around the world knows Mulbacher designs. I trust when Mr. Mulbacher gives me a stone and tells me what he wants designed from it. He sees my designs and I hope he is impressed and I learn from him everyday," says the Master Goldsmith at Muhlbacher's. No automatic alt text available.

Abschied nach 20 Drehtagen: v.r. Andrea Oster und Götz Lück, dahinter das Kamera-Team sowie Yusuf & Rabia vorne mit den Kindern Elanur, Leyla und Mohamed rechts in der Schaukel               Mohamed
At the Apricoto farm in Turkey, here is Gotz Luck with his team, yet I can give you a treat if you want to meet the real seasoned person face to face at   Glockengasse 4 93047 Regensburg                                  Tel.: 0941-560 169, . I ask Gotz if he ever is surprised by people and the artisans that he meets, if he ever learns something from them or if he knows everything already? "When you work 40 years and you see somebody that long and you grew up with teaching that is a man and that is a woman, you learn to tell the differences between a Iran rug and a Afghanistan rug or a Turkish rug. You were trained and I believe that if you are 40 years in that business you should know. For instance the 3 rugs that I have hanging on the wall, the red one is from Iran and the other two were Turkish. They each are food rugs, which means that these rugs are used for special occaisions for food and they place the rug on the tables and they eat with special guests, the other days they use clothes for the tables. The ones here are at least 70 years old and they have been used only for special occaisions. They have been taken care of. Yet they are 70 years old. That is important and as I said I have seen a 3,000 year old rug only in a museum."        
The lovely Orientales of Regensburg where you can literally hear tales of the middle east and the traditions of the meanings of the woven rugs, Turkey, Afghanistan, Iran, India Marokko and the hidden treasures of these countries. 
                               Here is a elegant knowing man who has traveled the world the last 40 years! dealing with the finest artisans of oriental carpets from the Middle East. He is such a sweet person yet a very serious person who cares about the Middle East and the Customs, the traditions and the tribes. "Yes, the tribal customs are rituals and have been around for 50,000 years, for 100,000 years...imagine that the tribes made such carpets that the museums they have carpets from 3,000 years. I have seen, yet never touched since they are in museums. I believe that these beautifully perfectly handwoven rugs have been around for the last 20,000 years of tradition. They are made the way today as at that original day. Meticulously and with reason."
    " The Green color for these devote people is the color of the Prophet. The people of Turkey use bright colors of green and red and yellow. The people of Afghanistan prefer the very dark colors." he says as he leads me fondly and with reverence around his showroom. I am lucky to have a friend as him.  Götz Lück

"My pieces are old pieces and antiques. They are cared for with rituals through the ages of tribes that date back to 50,000 to 100,000 years old. I value the old pieces that have a story and history to each one. It is a technique that I love. Yes I do love the job I have. I love meeting the new people and my old friends and the cultures which are very different around the world. It is with awe that I have been in the business 40 years. I repair these carpets with love and understanding of the artisan that originally sat down for years to make each one. I love to think of myself as a person that fixes the broken pieces of each ritualistic rug." he speaks with eloquence and reverence and respect. 
     I love his showroom and have literally spent hours in it sitting on the cushions and chatting the last 5 years. I had the immense honor of having tea with a sheikh in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates where I had the best mint tea in my life, laughed a lot, tried on a light blue belly dancing outfit with gold coins that I looked absolutely stunning in and almost bought with literally zero place to wear it, and wore a abaya at his insistence and looked horrid! The Emirate women in their abayas look gorgeous! I looked fat and plain. I prefered the belly dancing outfit! His showroom reminds me of the tea experience. Loved it. Wonder if at Götz Lück if the tourists come in shyly and peer in the windows that show the gorgeous array of rugs and jewelry he laughs, "they all come in, they run in and they laugh and ask o can we try that, and they eat the chocolates and they buy many treats." he says. 
"Pazyryk from the Malti Mountains if perhaps the most known revered artisan that perfectly woved his craft and the traditions continue from him. Each country and culture is different and they love and embrace their carpet making differently. Sometimes they are very happy to see me and sometimes they are not happy to see me" he says.

"That one is just for show, the real one where I entertain guests is behind the wall and yes we do enjoy tea with each other. You are right it is about traditon." he says when I say that even having high tea in London at the Ritz where we wore white gloves didn't feel the same experience as the tea in the Emirates. At the honored ostello in Sharjah the Sheikh, Ruler of Sharjah, HH Dr Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed had breakfast with us every morning. I was so scared that I would do something wrong that we all waited til he had his breakfast before we ate. It was the COOLEST EXPERIENCE EVER.!

  The Orphee Restaurant and Hotel in Regensburg Germany is French, lovely and the team great. I stayed at the Orphee about 5 nights my very first visit to Regensburg and loved Annette, my host, and her boss is Micheal. They have gorgeous rooms, one of which is my Jr. Suite with about 6 different sitting rooms, old wooden floors, dining tables in the middle piled with books and fruit bowls and daily bottles of free house wine!
     The Jerusalem room is saved for a lovely old ballerina that used to come here in the 1950s. You can reserve it complete with a open wooden floor and claw bathtub, if you are not shy, in the middle of a huge room. However, if the little ballerina comes back, it is her room! orphee_restaurant_09

  from the orphee.... Restaurant Orphée is considered to be the most authentic French Bistro east of the river Rhine.
Since 1896 the interior of the restaurant with its vintage wainscotting and wood partitions has been preserved virtually untouched. Red plush settees and marble tables await you in the front bistro area of the restaurant, wainscotting and formally laid-out tables with Thonet chairs in the rear restaurant area. The Orphée is a timeless „classic“, open every day for eighteen hours, serving many a function: breakfast in all sorts of variations, daily a modest yet exquisite menu for the noontime visitors, in the afternoons a relaxed Viennese-type coffeehouse, in the evenings plenty of buzz and bustle, after 10 p.m. the bar takes over. The cuisine of the Restaurant Orphée is Mediterranean yet without frills. 
     The bars of Regensburg, Germany, of which they rank 2 in the world for most bars per person, and although that could seem impressive the coolest thing about the bars of the Historical Heritage Site City is that each one is either in a brick stable, or dungeon! or old Palace...they are each individual and each one more beautiful than the next. It is quite amazing to see even the Irish Pub of Regensburg in a 1300 year old cellar! ha.                                     The famous Irish Bar Murphys Law.  
      With Irish Music lessons weekly and Pub Quiz in German and English great fun!
