A cooking legend has arrived
Berlin, October 2018 – At the end of 2018, Dieter Müller, bearer of multiple Gault Millau points, will join The Ritz-Carlton, Berlin, assuming a position as inspiring patron in the new restaurant and enriching the establishment with his cooking expertise. Originally from Baden-Württemberg, the gourmet chef shapes the international culinary scene and will use his knowledge in upscale restaurant culture to enhance the superior five-star hotel at Potsdamer Platz.
In addition to three Michelin stars, Dieter Müller's passion – cuisine – has lent him the name "German Marvel of the Kitchen", it is thanks to his work that German cuisine has undergone a revolution in the international world of culinary pleasures and now enjoys an excellent reputation.

"With his outstanding reputation and solid expertise, we are looking forward to the culinary inspirations that Dieter Müller will offer our guests. The German culture of indulgence will prepare top-quality delicacies for the Berlin audience and will enrich the diverse culinary scene in the capital" noted General Manager Robert Petrović.
High-class cuisine based on sustainable sources and reflecting German specialties will take its place in the new restaurant at the grand hotel. Following from the inspirations of Dieter Müller and under the direction of Frederik Grieb, the kitchen will focus on a food-sharing concept selectively supplemented with new and creative influences. "My connection with the Ritz-Carlton brand goes back many years and it is important to me to be able to pass on my culinary knowledge that is founded on many years of experience," says Dieter Müller.
The restaurant's culinary team will be breaking ground with this new leadership. Frederik Grieb will soon assume direction as head chef of the establishment, which is currently undergoing renovations; Grieb will put into action the modern concept of the German cuisine of delicacies. Born in Münster, Grieb was most recently a sous-chef at the Dieter Müller Restaurant on the MS Europa.
