King Kamehameha Club, Frankfurt
Address: 20 Taunusanlage
In the late '90s, when Madjid Djamegari opened the massive King Kamehameha Club in the city's industrial east, he was crowned Frankfurt's king of nightlife. After much anticipation, Djamegari has finally launched a spot for grown-ups, the King Kamehameha Suite, in a stunning historic building across from the Opera House. A wide, winding staircase leads to the second-floor dining room, overseen by American chef Alan Ogden. His hearty creations give German high cuisine an international twist: dorade on mashed potatoes with apple juiceinfused blood sausages, or wild boar stew with hazelnut spaetzle. After dinner, guests relax in the compound's bars and lounges to talk euros over serious cocktailsthis is, after all, the capital of banking (entrées, $29$35).
