Food

James offers contemporary bistro-style small plates and desserts. With his second home in Berlin, he likes to travel and takes cues for his cooking from American and European contemporary and traditional cuisine.

Trips to the Middle East and Africa added a little bit of a cosmopolitan approach. The bites are simple, going back to the essence of nature, and with that going back to traditional cooking. He makes sure that the offerings are made with genuine ingredients and authentic methods.

In their collaboration, Tevin brings in over more than ten years special event cooking experience, with an open minded and versatile approach. His knack for spices, and flavor combinations brings wonderful aspects into traditional food and merges traditional European and contemporary American cuisine with elegance.

EcHT Liquor Lab and Tasting Room

Contemporary small dishes, drinks and cocktails are served  – when going down this spiral stair case. Made from in-house distilled rum, grain and fruit liquors. Specialities include good fruit and grain selections distilled in the second run with a hint of botanicals.

Coming at the right moment, you can observe the owners performing slow-distilling from selected ingredients, hand fermented on site and in small batches, barrel proof.

Here our Distillery

Coffee Roasting

We slow-roast in small-batch in-house using a fluid-bed roaster for precision temperature control and optimal heat distribution.

Enjoy smelling the Ethiopian beans when roasting. Our espresso is created by a barista mastering a Mavam temperature, flow and pressure profile programmed machine.

Location

Our bistro with Coffee Lounge and a Tasting Room are thought to provide experiences. The culinary offerings and the interior design blend the traditional with the modern - on the plate and in the ambience. The culinary space is set within our EcHT CONTRACTING design- and build shops for hand crafting and custom fabrication, operated by James partner, Jorg. The interior of all our spaces is completely crafted in-house by our association of EcHT craftsmen. Any piece of furniture, center islands, cabinets and light fixtures are thought to inspire - should you look for custom crafting for your own space. We are also an accredited Miele Appliances Dealer and can offer cohesive kitchen remodelling. Check out or center island examples. Here our Custom Contracting pages and our Ceramic Tile Crafting pages.

OPENING SUMMER 2022

Experience a Special Event

Candle Light Dinner at the Chef's Table

Coming from valet parking, you enter through an exlusive side door with a blue lantern into the contemporary renovated building, which show-cases examples of the associated design& build shops. You will be escorted to a fancy stair going up, transition through the large industrial metal workshop where design work takes place, and enter through an impressive brick arch into the greeting area.

Offerings on the espresso counter include slow roasted Ethiopian espresso beans. That counter is made entirely out of raw steel plates, with sunken-in appliances. Should you be early for your reservation, you could wait with a drink or a coffee in the contemporary designed space, or go for an aperitiv into the associated tasting room, where the owners operate their copper-pot and column still.

The chefs James or Tevin will guide you up a grand spiral stair case to their chef tables. In their open kitchen they offers candle light dining in an outstanding and inviting atmosphere. In the side rooms, designed items of EcHT Contracting are displayed. Pick your desired menu from the hand written chalk board. If you are not busy, finishing the experience in the tasting room for the digestiv could be an option.
