When Orfeo's Erben (heirs) was opened in January 1999, as a successor of one of the most renowned art house cinemas in Germany, nobody had an idea that Andreas Lucas and Harry Dehnhardt had hit on an excellent concept: They made the Orfeo's into a unique, public cinema restaurant, which is unrivalled in Germany. Both sides of the business are a great deal. In the smallest THX cinema in Germany you see movies, trailers and the latest production of aspiring German film-makers. The open bar and restaurant area has also got many fans. Who's surprised? The atmosphere is great, and the food, too. Trade Fair visitors, neighbours, regulars, and movie lovers are repeat customers here. You find delicious international dishes on the menu: Crunchy salads with a sophisticated dressing, pasta, fish and meat. If you are lucky you get one of the sought-after tables next to the screening room - then you can enjoy your food with a good movie.
The name EDMW stands for EAT DRINK MAN WOMAN of the Ang Lee movie. The topic? Asian cuisine arts and human relationships. The name says it all. In the unadorned restaurant you'll receive liquid and solid delicacies of Asian cooking: Buddha rolls, spring rolls, shrimp skewers in peanut sauce. If you want to taste it all, choose the Tapas - a perfect cross-section of the edible Asia. DRINK is part of the programme, too. At the bar you get all sorts of colourful cocktails, including Martini Cocktails, Gin Fizz, Pina Colada, Swimmingpool and Vodka Sour. The open room concept invites you to have good conversations in large groups, and those who prefer two-some privacy can choose one of the calm, more intimate corners. The ambiance is classy but still inviting. Giant aquariums create a bluish light; the fish calmly swim their rounds and make the EDMW a perfect place to start into the night.
You'll realize that the Tiger Restaurant is something very special upon entering: The walls are decorated with posters from the world of performing artists, as well as relevant wall paintings. Delve into this world of high-flying dreams. The food in this international gourmet restaurant is just as great as the variety show in the house. Enjoy the light, French cooking that follows the seasons. Taste a shellfish cream soup with shrimp balls, peas and mint, after that a tranche of deer's back with celery nut crust and barberry sauce and as a dessert toffee brittle bar with compote and pear sorbet. This doesn't only sound delicious, it is, and it is confirmed by the star, which the international hotel and restaurant guide Michelin has been awarding since 1997. The menu is excellent, the wine selection, too, and the service team around the chef and sommelier Miguel Martin top class. Tip: Enjoy a menu in the Tiger Restaurant and a late show of the excellent artists and acrobats.
