Named after a square in Paris, Vendôme is housed in a stately manor house, part of the lavish 18th-century Schloss Bensberg hotel. The dining room, with gorgeous views of Cologne and its famous cathedral, is luxurious with an elegant cream-and-olive color scheme and immaculate white tablecloths. Chef Joachim Wissler, at the vanguard of the new German school of cooking, re-imagines his country’s cuisine using international ingredients and techniques. Regional favorites and forgotten ingredients are reinvented in dishes such as goose liver snowball with truffle foam and tamarillo or supreme of pork braised with lovage. Asian and French influences are also featured in such dishes as Coquilles Saint Jacques accompanied by pickled cucumber, wasabi-avocado purée and shiso dashi. The eclectic wine list includes almost 1,000 bottles, including a huge selection from Germany and France, Spain, Latin America, the US, Japan and Greece.
