Restaurant Lohninger – Home and World You always hear that opening a restaurant of one’s own means the fulfilment of a dream. As corny as it may sound, that is exactly what happened when we opened Restaurant Lohninger in the spring of 2010 right by the Main river in Frankfurt. Having already worked together for a long time, we, the Lohninger family and our team, founded the Lohninger GmbH and developed our very own restaurant concept. We love to show locals and guests from all over the world the many facets of Austrian cuisine, combined with Mediterranean, Asian and American elements. Located on the ground floor of a tasteful old building with high, individually adorned ceilings, a timeless color concept in grey and purple, custom-made wooden furniture and an open-plan dining area, Restaurant Lohninger unites rustic influences with urban Art Nouveau. In the immediate vicinity of the Museumsufer – museum bank – we unite various cultures in the form of different cooking styles. We invite you to experience Austria’s authentic character, conviviality, merriment and coziness in combination with contemporary, light elements. A wholly relaxed and informal atmosphere is especially important to us. Be it for a quick breather during lunch break or a multi-course dinner in the evening, we are here for you seven days a week.
Here at Lohninger, we have been working together as a close-knit team for many years. The core members are the Lohninger family themselves, and some of our employees have been with us for a long time. The interaction of kinship, professional team work, trust and friendship makes us a modern family business. We are here for you: Mario Lohninger – Patron and head chef Erika Lohninger – Wine selection and the restaurant’s soul Paul Lohninger – Head of Heurigen and expert for Austrian cuisine Sabine Mischke – Strong shoulder and background organization Kate Lohninger – The next generation Dirk Schommer – Executive chef and creative force Stefanie Pfeiffer – Head of service and long-standing companion Patrick Einert-Primavera – Deputy head of service

As a small boy from the Alps I was allowed to help in my grandfather’s bakery and my parents’ restaurant in Leogang near Zell am See, which coined my career aspirations early on. After my apprenticeship it was curiosity that pulled me out into the world. I learned what I am still furthering today in international top restaurants, and different mentors have accompanied me along the way: Rudi and Karl Obauer, Hans Haas, Wolfgang Puck or Guy Savoy. I am thankful that I got the chance to know so many great cooking styles, cultures and people. Even as a Junger Wilder (young wild) my head was full of recipes from my homeland and the world. Wolfgang Puck gave me the chance to prove myself as his sous-ch
