MAISON MANESSE – fun. fine. dining.
At maison manesse lively people prepare exciting food for relaxed guests. Challenge your palate without having to subject yourself to dated dinner table rituals, ties and subdued dinner conversations. Fine dining ought to be liberating. At Maison Manesse it is exactly that. No musts, no expectations, no tablecloths. Simply indulgence in all its culinary facets. Love on plates and in glasses. Served by a friend.
Our paradise for the senses is driven by innovation and created anew each day by a keen team led by manager Miguel Ledesma and chef Fabian Spiquel.
Miguel has been breathing restaurant air since his earliest childhood. Gastronomy is second nature to him. he lives, breathes and speaks it; it is his access to the world. Miguel spends most of his holidays at vineyards and in restaurants, where he revels in the aromas and then brings his discoveries back home. Our wine cellar is home to some 1000 bottles of wine – they’re not there because of their label, but because of their quality. No pretence. Body and soul.
Together with his highly motivated international team, he is responsible for the attentive service, which perfectly complements the modernist cooking. Miguel’s charming, warm-hearted persona and undaunted open-mindedness add to maison manesse’s casual and serene ambiance.
The man orchestrating Maison Manesse’s unique culinary concept is 30-year-old chef Fabian Spiquel, who was born into the restaurant business in Australia.
Fabian considers every kitchen a creative playground full of opportunities. he’s a culinary visionary who is dedicated to experimenting. He is always searching for new, unusual and surprising flavour combinations – even in his dreams! not a day goes by where he doesn’t push the boundaries.
High-quality produce is a natural prerequisite in Fabian’s cooking. He is particularly fascinated with so-called superfoods – foods with an unusually high content of healthy nutrients. Fabian regularly roams the earth on the lookout for these exceptionally healthy rarities and imports them into Switzerland – sometimes exclusively for Maison Manesse.
