NEW YORK – Sotheby’s was delighted to join Gaggenau, the luxury lifestyle brand, as it celebrated its 333rd anniversary with the creation of Restaurant 1683 in New York City. The highly anticipated four-night pop-up delivered a culinary experience as uncompromisingly exquisite as the legacy that inspired it. The exclusive invite-only event, the first in a three-year initiative series, ignited the guests' senses with fine cuisine, artful design and extraordinary and immersive décor. From September 26th through September 29th, three Michelin star Chef Daniel Humm and Restaurateur Will Guidara of Manhattan’s revered Eleven Madison Park welcomed guests into an immersive sensory experience. The restaurant’s environment transported visitors to the origins of Gaggenau. Forged of fire, wrought iron and the striking of a hammer, Restaurant 1683 brought the Black Forest to Manhattan with an interactive environment inspired by the immeasurable landscape and tradition of the region. Both mystical and savory, Gaggenau Restaurant 1683 offered a surreal and strikingly modern immersion into the beginnings of the contemporary luxury brand.
