The show that the chefs put on at KABUKI, rival anything you would see at a circus! Salt and pepper shakers fly through the air, cleavers chop vegetables faster than the eye can see and the teppanyaki grill hisses and spits like a wild animal, right at your table! The excellent meat, fish and poultry dishes are all prepared as part of the show. Their wine list is extensive and exquisitely exotic. The prices are high, but then again, you're getting a whole deal more than food! A must try!
Iwase, named after its eponymous owner, serves tantalizing Japanese cuisine. With just four tables, this simply decorated establishment is certainly on the small side, but it's not the size that counts, and the choice of over 31 different dishes is more than enough. The sushi is tasty and is served with soup, just like the typical Japanese style. Visitors can accompany their meal with a cup of green tea or a glass of sake (Japanese beer). The service is friendly and efficient, the prices moderate.
This elegant restaurant café in the Städel Museum is the creation of a leading designer. Holbein's Café-Restaurant has a modern ambiance with cream colored walls, oak floors, black leather seats and maroon accessories, and their effect is surprisingly uplifting because of the glass and steel construction of the building. The adjoining terrace is delightful. They serve exquisite fare which is a mix between fresh local and world cuisine. Prices are not low and the wine list includes high-quality international wines, but it's the perfect place to have a meal after visiting the museum.
