Called Hausmann’s and opened in conjunction with the SSP Group, the restaurant is located close to Gate A and promises to offer "home-style German cuisine that is honest and authentic, but with a contemporary twist".
Hausmann’s means ‘plain fare’ in German.
With Hausmann’s, Rüther and Mälzer say that they wanted to bring a ‘cosy, homespun vibe’ to Duesseldorf airport, which is encapsulated by the traditional home cooked German fare through to the oak-wood and vintage interior.
Indeed, its motto is to serve the best German cuisine at any time of day, from breakfast of fruits, sandwiches, and smoothies as well as savoury lunchtime classics such as roasted chicken or knuckle of veal, and an after work craft beer.
Regional and sustainably produced ingredients are used across the menu.
Thomas Schnalke, chairman of the management board Dusseldorf Airport, said: “We are very happy that Patrick Rüther and Tim Mälzer chose our airport in which to open their second restaurant in Dusseldorf.
"Hausmann’s provides our passengers with another fantastic gastronomy option. It is a very good example of how airport restaurants of the future will look like.“
The new airport restaurant, measuring approximately 400 square metres, is very similar to its namesakes in the old town of Dusseldorf which features a combination of vintage and modern elements, oak-wood and steel, artwork and industrial lighting above the tables creates an informal and urban atmosphere.
SSP has signed a lease for seven years with Dusseldorf Airport and is set to open six more food and beverage units in 2017 with a further unit to follow in 2019.
The company expects a total annual turnover of €112 million over the contractual period, and will employ 174 people.
