Tohru Nakamura was able to keep his kitchen team from Werneckhof, with whom he had cooked two Michelin stars, together for a good two years. When the team was homeless in the first Corona summer because the owners had to give up the restaurant, they defended the two stars in various pop-up restaurants before Nakamura was able to reopen the gourmet restaurant Tohru in the Schreiberei last year.
But now the restaurant manager Markus Klaas, 36, and his twin brother, the sommelier Tobias Klaas, are leaving the house at the end of October. The two want to start their own business with their own restaurant. It will be called Brothers and is said to be opening in the premises of the former In-Vietnamese Anh-Thu on Kurfürstenstrasse.
You part on good terms, and there are already successors for the two. The 30-year-old Julia Kolbeck, previously deputy restaurant manager, moves up to the top spot. And the Mexican Alicia Ahuactzi, who has already worked for the Slovenian star chef Ana Ros, will be added as a sommelier. She is also an expert on Japanese rice wine sake, which goes very well with Nakamura’s cuisine.
