How often did I complain about the culinary options in Hamburg a few years ago. My complaining has become quieter. It has not fallen silent. There is so much that is missing and that I would like to see. Really good dim sum for example, izakaya, okonomiyaki or any new ideas at all. But above all, of course: good cuisine with excellent products and a relaxed atmosphere. But the good news is: it’s getting more diverse and better!
And the Heimatjuwel will certainly make its contribution to this in a few weeks. I usually don’t report on new restaurants until after they open. In this case it’s different, because I was able to take a look at the kitchen and the construction site in advance – I could even support the project already with a small excerpt of my service: Strictly speaking, with the new logo!
Heimatjuwel is Marcel Görke’s new restaurant. In recent years he has been cooking at Stüffel in Hamburg, and before that he was head chef at Seven Seas, part of the team that was awarded two Michelin stars at the time. Before that, he cooked his first star at Chezann at the age of 28.
Most recently, I had the opportunity to tackle one of Marcel’s dishes at the Sternefresser’s Cooktank. His signature is very clear and product-focused. In Heimatjuwel, the name already implies, there will be a regionally oriented cuisine, in any case with regard to the products used. I’m looking forward to getting a first look at the new creations in a few weeks.
Until then, however, it is still necessary to finish the last work on the construction site and to put the kitchen into operation. A kitchen, by the way, which is almost as large as the guest room. A perfect place for new culinary adventures.
