Between February 1 and Easter 2018, the kitchen at Louis C. Jakob will be completely rebuilt and renovated. So it’s a perfect opportunity to try something new. In this case, not only a new temporary location, but also new ideas and dishes, – all between 14€ and 18€.
The “Louis – by Thomas Martin” combines Hanseatic cosmopolitanism and regionality. The restaurant’s cuisine will bear Thomas Martin’s signature: In the ‘Louis’ we will present our guests a lot of vegetables and fish. The creations are product-focused, flavorful and harmonious in ingredients. I would briefly describe the cuisine as upscale and cosmopolitan with regional influences.’Anything is possible’ – that was our motto when we created the map,” says Martin. The menu will feature dishes such as “Hamachi, dashi broth, green shiso,” “scallop, black garlic, chili,” and “ceviche of loup de mer, lemon, avocado, cilantro,” as well as “vegetables from our own field with honey and olive oil” or “smart-farming salad with French mustard and croutons.” Serving is done according to the so-called “sharing principle”. That is, you order several portions that you can share. Among other things, bread and homemade oils or dips are served with it. The corresponding wine recommendations are provided by head sommelier Torsten Junker. For an aperitif or a casual end to the evening, the also newly designed bar right next to the restaurant offers an attractive champagne and long drink menu. But the bar also simply invites you to a relaxed after-work drink with colleagues or friends.
Regional suppliers, an in-house field and innovative “Smart Farming” The aim is to delight regular guests and new guests with the “Louis – by Thomas Martin” and to surprise them with something completely new. Thomas Martin developed the kitchen concept together with his young, creative team, which was able to play a particularly active role in the pop-up project. Thus, a large part of the vegetables comes from the Haidehof estate on the outskirts of Wedel. There, a field is cultivated especially for the “Louis – by Thomas Martin”, on which even artichokes are grown in addition to beets and co. In addition, the company is opening up to new, innovative concepts such as “Smart Farming”: every lettuce leaf that lands on the plate at “Louis” comes from this special cultivation variant of the “Farmers Cut” in downtown Hamburg.
