Scholz am Park — Stuttgart, Germany
Nestled on Stuttgart’s Killesberg Hill, a former trade fair complex now rejuvenated with new housing by Ortner & Ortner and David Chipperfield, Scholz am Park is a welcoming French restaurant perfectly placed to enjoy the redevelopment. Designed by architect/owner Gregor Scholz (who partnered with Stephanie Benzing and Paul Schwenk on the project), the modern all-day eatery combines French oak panelling and exposed concrete accents, and has its own vertical rotisserie where meat, fish and veg are roasted to perfection. Traditional French fare is given a twist with local ingredients; all milk and cheese comes from the local Schrozberg dairy farm. Scholz’s concept also includes a florist and ice cream palour, located in adjacent Ortner & Ortner buildings and curated with the same attention to detail as the restaurant.
