Top chefs at Restaurant Ikarus
Located in Hamburg’s vibrant HafenCity district, The Table promises a great experience for food lovers from all over the world. One highlight follows the next, whether in terms of cuisine or architecture. In creative menus, three-star chef Kevin Fehling builds an arc of suspense course by course, reinterpreting familiar dishes and adding surprising twists to the narrative – from the opening scene to the sweet happy ending.
The eponymous table is the conceptual centrepiece of the restaurant: up to 22 guests dine at a single, serpentine, dark cherry wood counter overlooking the open kitchen, right in the middle of the action.
With The Table, we wanted to set new standards, inspire our guests and offer them an alternative to traditional fine dining with our cosmopolitan, creative cuisine and easy-going style.
