First off - the location: Hecker is situated on Kloosterstraat, a street with the highest concentration of antique shops per square metre. Second, the head chef Kasper Kurdahl is nicknamed "the Danish-born Belgian enfant terrible" and has worked with the legend of French cuisine Alain Ducasse and the Catalan star of El Bulli fame Ferran Adrià. The atmosphere at Hecker is creative and totally unpretentious: red walls, candles in the windows, contemporary art on the walls, a blackboard with the specials of the day, nice crockery. An interesting experimental cuisine, for example, scallops with chanterelles and pesto. In the summer you are welcome to sit on the terrace decorated with potted rosemary. The Hecker wine list has been praised not only for its length but also the well-considered range of choice.
Dinner for one: EUR 35-50 on average.
