Sra Bua restaurant of the Kempinski Group is going to be the second house in Germany (Hotel Adlon Kempinski’s Sra Bua by Tim Raue is the first) dedicated to the Asian-European crossover concept. Sra Bua by Juan Amador is set to open in early December 2013.
“I am proud that we have managed to get Juan Amador for our house. Now we can finally offer a restaurant to all ourgourmet lovers in the Rhine-Main region that is led by a three-star chef,” enthuses hotel director Stefan Schwind, who considered the new project as the culmination of the current remodelling of the hotel. “Our guests from around the world can rejoice: with Sra Bua by Juan Amador we establish an innovative and already well-proven restaurant concept,” he adds.
Juan Amador, the 44-year-old German with Spanish roots, says: “The Rhine -Main area is like my second home. This is where I got my stars, and I always like to come back. The Sra Bua concept, originating in Asia, is an exciting challenge for me.”
His three Michelin star restaurant Amador is situated in the former Schildkrötfabrik in Mannheim. He made his name internationally as a representative of haute cuisine and molecular gastronomy, but has always relied mostly on traditional recipes of French, Catalonian and the Basque Country cuisine, as well as fresh, local ingredients. The Sra Bua concept, originating in Thailand and translating as lotus blossom pond, signifies the dialogue between pan-Asian cuisine with its diversity of flavours, and European elements such as elegance and impeccable service, individually interpreted by a European chef.
The Kempinski Hotel Gravenbruch Frankfurt joins Bangkok, Jochberg near Kitzbühel, St. Moritz and Berlin as the overall fifth house of the international five-star hotel group to implement this innovative concept.
