Welcome to Gustav.
Forms and colours inspired by Bauhaus. Unconventional works by young Frankfurt artists. An atmosphere that combines relaxation with intense concentration. Cuisine that dispenses with flashy effects and instead embraces precise artisanry, finely harmonised nuances and meticulous attention to detail ... Restaurant Gustav in Frankfurt’s Westend district offers a new, subtle form of avant-garde.
Gustav is the second restaurant run by Frankfurt-based restaurateurs Milica Trajkovska Scheiber and Matthias Scheiber, after ‘Weinsinn’ (opened in 2009), and has been awarded a Michelin star.
Head Chef Jochim Busch, Gault & Millau’s ‘discovery of the year’ in 2016, takes his inspiration from rediscovering regional cuisine. His expeditions take him to cultural landscapes as varied as the Rheingau and the Rhön Mountains, the Odenwald and the Wetterau, as well as to an astonishing variety of green spaces and gardens within the city limits. Sourcing products locally isn’t an end in itself for Busch; they also have to be fresh and authentic. Accordingly, he sees a close link between seasonal and regional. After all, truly understanding your home region means knowing how it changes with the seasons too.

The regularly changing dishes on the evening menu can be combined into three, four, five or six courses. At lunch, you can choose between two- or three-course meals.
There are around 200 entries in the wine list, including many naturally aged wines. All of the wines come from Europe, with around half originating in Germany. Our sommelier Ulrike Schneider would be happy to suggest wine that perfectly accompanies the flavours of your meal.
To put it in a nutshell: this is Frankfurt’s most delightful new restaurant in recent years.
Our discoveries of the week: trout with fennel pollen, cauliflower with couscous. Restaurant Gustav in Frankfurt’s Westend district offers regional fare with international flair.
High-quality, stylish, straightforward. The modern style of the restaurant is reflected also in the cuisine and especially has one thing: its own signature. The dishes are pleasantly reduced with a beautiful interaction of contrasts and textures.
Chef Jochim Busch delivers playful but detailed cooking with imaginative flavour and texture pairings. (...) So, if you’re in Frankfurt and looking to get a taste of German “bistronomie”, Gustav would be an excellent choice.
