I AM FRITZ’s FRAU FRANZI – AND I AM HAPPY TO INTRODUCE ME!

The FRITZ’s FRAU FRANZI restaurant, part of THE FRITZ Hotel, would like to present its new, quality gourmet team: with the innovative head chef Benjamin Kriegel and the experienced, Michelin-star chef Robert J.K. Kranenborg as “stimulating creative assistance”, the hotel director Eva Herrmann is able to present two real experts in the industry – as well as a top-class staff in the extraordinary restaurant.

The Sauerland-born Benjamin Kriegel came to Dusseldorf at a young age. Since 2014, he has gained popularity as sous chef at the restaurant “Victorian”. The previous posts the 28-year-old has held speak for themselves as well. Especially his year and a half under chef Christian Jürgens, who has been awarded 3 Michelin stars in the multiple-award-winning hotel and gourmet restaurant “Ueberfahrt” on Lake Tergensee. Benjamin Kriegel has served as head chef at the restaurant FRITZ’s FRAU FRANZI since April 2016.

The visionary, Michelin-star chef Robert J.K. Kranenborg, especially renowned in the Netherlands, has been dealing exclusively with exquisite fine dining concepts over the last 30 years. Since April 2016, he has been awarded several accolades by the Michelin guide for his “stimulating creative assistance” at the FRITZ’s FRAU FRANZI restaurant, and is delighted to be able to share his knowledge and experience with others. "My culinary CV is not a substitute for populism, but means to achieve a balance in a variety of tastes. Try me!"
