Nicolas Schmidt


"We are putting the band back together" - Blues Brothers

Our story begins with the thought of putting the old Lorenz Adlon Esszimmer crew back together. In the summer of 2017 Nicolas Schmidt startet project "Slate", a restaurant which combines a living room ambiance with elegant casual fine dining. After Lukas Bachl joined in on the idea the journey was about to begin.

"Restaurant Slate, for me, is a place where our guests can forget about the hectics of our time. Just like visiting a day Spa, we focus on a relaxed atmosphere as well as the joy to work with exceptional products."
