The Rezidor Hotel Group owned Regent Berlin's Fischers Fritz restaurant, has been awarded two stars by Michelin, the French guide to fine dining, for the third consecutive year.

Chef de Cuisine, Christian Lohse, has succeeded in maintaining his crown as Berlin's only two Michelin-starred Chef, with his classic French cuisine with a contemporary twist. In fall 2007, Lohse's dedication to his craft and relentless pursuit of perfection placed him firmly at the forefront of Berlin's culinary world, when he became the first Berlin based chef in 13 years, to merit two Michelin stars.

"I am delighted to be celebrating this most sought after culinary honour, with Christian Lohse and his team", said Stefan Athmann, General Manager at The Regent Berlin. "To receive two stars from Michelin is an impressive achievement, to retain them for the third succeeding year, is a great motivation for us all to continue to strive even further in the pursuit of excellence."

By retaining the two Michelin stars for the third time, Christian Lohse again confirms his position as one of the most celebrated chefs in Germany and follows up on his previous awards. Prior to his engagement at The Regent Berlin he worked at such renowned places like three-starred "L'Espérance" in Vezelay, the "Guy Savoy" in Paris and "The Dorchester" in London, where he became the personal chef to the Sultan of Brunei.

The Fischers Fritz's menu is an artistic and modern approach to French-inspired cuisine, featuring exquisite fish and seafood delicacies. Subtle yet sophisticated, the dishes complement the restaurant's atmosphere of balance and class. Simple creations distinguished by the high quality of fresh produce have made The Regent Berlin's gourmet restaurant a place of pilgrimage for gourmets.

Lohse sees the award as a great honour as well as a motivating reward: "I am extremely proud of the great team effort of everyone involved in sustaining two Michelin Stars for the third time in a row. It demonstrates the commitment and dedication of the team's exacting standards. Our challenge in gourmet gastronomy is to maintain a high-level of consistency day by day."

The Regent Berlin is located on the Gendarmenmarkt square with a beautiful view of the French Cathedral and the concert Hall. The boulevard Unter den Linden, the Brandenburg Gate and Friedrichstrasse with their exclusive boutiques are just a few steps away. The very personal service and luxurious furnishings of the 195 rooms and suites make the five-star superior hotel a popular address for celebrities, holiday makers and business travellers. With highly modern conference and meeting rooms, as well as the Michelin-starred Fischers Fritz gourmet restaurant, The Regent Berlin is the ideal setting for any event.
