In the coming years, a new urban quarter for around 4,000 residents will be built on the current METRO Campus. METRO is also developing its own directly adjacent buildings and is using the opportunity to attract new gastronomic concepts and offer innovative restaurateurs a platform. In the coming years, 7 new gastronomic concepts will be created that reflect the diversity of the industry: from top-class fine cuisine to trend-setting concepts in the fast casual segment. Among other things, this serves to raise the profile of Düsseldorf as a culinary destination - a goal that METRO is pursuing together with other partners in the state capital.
The gastronomic number 1 at the new METRO Campus has already been determined. Thomas Bühner, one of the most internationally experienced German star chefs, will open a new fine dining restaurant in Düsseldorf Flingern. From 2006 to 2018, Thomas Bühner was managing director and head chef of the renowned restaurant la vie in Osnabrück, which was awarded three Michelin stars from 2021 until its closure. In April 2023, Thomas Bühner opened the restaurant la vie by Thomas Bühner in Taipei. Now he is coming to Düsseldorf. The opening is planned for the 1st quarter of 2025.
