HANGAR-7 and Restaurant Ikarus
Restaurant Ikarus works with the guest chef concept. A different top chef stands behind the stove each month. It doesn‘t matter which continent or country they come from, whether it‘s the USA, South Africa or Japan. Or whether they serve traditional, fusion or molecular cuisine. What matters most is the variety. And, of course, the high quality of the dishes.
When Restaurant Ikarus opened its doors in 2003, most people couldn‘t imagine that this ambitious plan would actually work in reality. But that was never an issue for the brains behind the concept. They never focused on the “whether”, only on the “how”.
Hangar-7 at Salzburg Airport is a unique building which houses the historical Red Bull Flying Bulls aircraft fleet and a collection of Formula 1 race cars. Hangar-7 also offers space for art exhibitions. And with its Restaurant Ikarus, one bar, an Outdoor Lounge and one café, it is not just an events location, but a meeting point for art lovers and bons vivants, too.
Sergio Herman and Jacob Jan Boerma Dutch guest masterchefs
For the chefs of Restaurant Ikarus, the guest chef concept means adapting to a new menu, a new top chef and a new philosophy each and every month. This demands a high degree of talent, versatility and team spirit. Two of the best Dutch Masterchefs; Sergio Herman (earlier Oud-Sluis, 3 Michelin stars, currently The Jane, Antwerp) and Jacob Jan Boerma (De Leuf, 3 Michelin stars) already made their appearance and cooked their exquisite dishes at Ikarus.
