We love Contradictions!  We also love the fact that life is so full of them!  Take for example Stanley Diamond, the latest addition to the Ardinast brothers repertoire, fine dining in Bahnhofsviertel.  Ten years ago these two words wouldn’t have found themselves in the same sentence let alone been on offer.  Like its sister restaurant Maxie Eisen, Stanley Diamond gets its name from a Jewish American Mobster, ‘street cred’ right there and we love it!

What’s in a name if there’s nothing to back it up?

Back it up they do!!  Chic modernist interiors, an amalgamation of exotic materials and textures.  The clean lines beautifully offset by linen covered tables and plush upholstered barstools and chairs (a collaboration with fabulous German furniture designer E15).  Behind the large marble bar take a glimpse through ‘rose tinted glasses’ into the inner workings of the kitchen.  Also, take a moment to cast your gaze upwards and admire the impressive copper ceiling, the final piece in a very luxurious puzzle.

During the summer months the large windows open up creating an almost continuous inside outside space. So giving diners the option to sit out on the pavement (well not literally) and feel the buzz on the street.

On another note, the bathrooms bring with them a playful twist reminding you life is too short to take yourself too seriously.

Now to the culinary side of things

European cuisine with a focus on regional nuances, think beef with grüne soße or lamb cutlets with asparagus and apricots (grüne soße & asparagus two local favourites).  Stanley Diamond prides itself on using the freshest ingredients sourced mainly from local producers and keeping their supply chain as short as possible.  As a result, the quality of the final dish arriving on your table is superb!

Stanley Diamond offers both à la carte and a 6, 7 or 8 course tasting menu. The tasting menu gives guests the opportunity to go on a culinary journey whilst allowing the Stanley Diamond team to showcase the full extent of their skills.
