Today I thought it would be
interesting to provide you with an insight to somewhere normally
out of view to hotel guests…
Has it ever crossed your mind as to
whether we, the Brenners team, also dine like royalty? Michelin
star chef Paul Stradner doesn't cook for us personally, that's one
thing I can tell you, but our staff bistro is in fact a centrepiece
of the hotel! It is the place where all staff can meet and
congregate - whether it be early in the morning, during the lunch
break or at the end of the working day.
A large blackboard greets us as
soon as we walk in informing all of the dishes on offer on that
particular day. Planned and managed by Executive Chef Rudolf
Pellkofer, this covers everything from meat, fish and seasonal
vegetables to vegetarian meals and a salad buffet. There's also
dessert! A piece of cake or a small pudding as well as fresh fruit.
And to make sure no one leaves hungry, our colleagues behind the
counter are more than willing to oblige with second helpings.
What more could you ask for?
Perhaps a cup of coffee to follow? This is naturally also taken
care of: cappuccino, latte macchiato and hot chocolate ... and
espresso for those in a hurry.
Also worth a mention is the bistro
telephone, accessible to all who need to make a quick call.
Discreetly hidden behind a little door in the wall it even
sometimes takes us by surprise when it starts ringing!
Also special is our small
second-hand bookshop opposite the buffet. Literary enthusiasts
interested in the history of cooking, nutrition or international
cocktails will be in their element here and can take out a book on
Those wishing to know who has been
particularly busy in the last few months can glance at the roll of
honour for our Quality Award for Service Excellence on which the
name of the member of staff for the previous month appears.
And before we all head back to
work, we can quickly check our appearance in the large mirror on
the wall - now everything is set for the day to continue! In short:
the Brenners Bistro… a place for relaxing, chatting and recharging
