on the EUREF-Campus
Innovation meets Taste
Experience exclusive grill cuisine and exquisite wines in an extraordinary ambience.
Culinary director and multiple award-winning master chef Thomas Kammeier and his team will demonstrate that kitchens can be workshops in innovation and will regularly invite top chefs from other restaurants to invent artistic and creative delicacies together.
The master chef learned the baker’s trade and trained as a chef. Thomas Kammeier started his career in the „Rotisserie“ in Worms.
After positions in Hamburg and Düsseldorf, he came to Berlin in 1997 to work at the Hotel Intercontinental. The Guide Michelin awarded his culinary skills at ‘Hugosʼ with a star. Since mid-2015, he has been the gastronomic director on the EUREF-Campus.
Once again, the EUREF-Campus has succeeded in signing a top personality. On 1 September 2020, Olaf Rode will begin preparations for the opening of “the CORD“, where he will be the manager from November. Kammeier and Rode know each other from „Hugos“, where they worked together for a while. Over the past 28 years he has worked in six top restaurants, a profile that is considered a constant in the industry. And that is how he intends to keep it on the EUREF-Campus.
The Opening Event
Actually, the opening of the new restaurant “the CORD” on EUREF-Campus was planned for November 2020. For well-known reasons, this was not possible. On May 21, 2021, the time had finally come, the CORD opened its doors and the kitchen was fired up. The official opening took place in the presence of numerous celebrities on June 24. The video captures impressions of this unforgettable evening.
The “Cord 810/812” from 1937, exhibit and namesake of the new restaurant, was the first streamlined vehicle and thus the most advanced automobile of its time. Almost 100 years ago, this innovation demonstrated absolute pioneering spirit, as the streamlined body and aircraft engine ensured less fuel and energy consumption. On the EUREF campus, too, new mobility concepts are being researched and tested that will have a sustainable impact on the city of tomorrow.
The EUREF-Campus is one of eleven „Zukunftsorte“ (places where tomorrowʼs future is being created today) in Berlin. There is hardly any other place where the future can be experienced as closely as at the historic Gasometer in Schöneberg. The German government’s climate targets for 2045 have long been achieved here. Over the past ten years, one building after another has been constructed on the site, not off-the-peg, but all architectural masterpieces and unique buildings, equipped with the most modern and resource-saving air-conditioning and lighting technology currently available.
