The building is the real story here: Originally a Jewish-owned department store, the space now inhabited by Lenbach was severely damaged on Kristallnacht in 1938. The property was bought in 1987 by Jürgen Schneider, the scandal-ridden former Donald Trump of Germany, who promptly went bankrupt. In 1995 it was taken over by Deutsche Bank, and in 1997 Sir Terence Conran was hired to create a premier celebrity-driven restaurant. Lenbach is a huge series of spaces, including the Renaissance Hall with coffered ceiling and wood floors. All spaces feature towering, arched ceilings supported by white columns, a black-and-white-tiled floor and cheesecake art with a twist. Though now in its tenth year, the restaurant has remained a see-and-be-seen spot, especially for visiting American celebrities. Prices are modest for fancy Munich dining: Come in spring and early summer and try the asparagus, served with Dover sole and a smattering of red beets in a very light vinaigrette. The braised suckling pig cheeks with marinated plums and a tower of bread dumplings is a German delicacy—a perfect modern interpretation of an old classic. Sushi is also on the menu, presumably to cater to Hollywood types and aspirational locals.

Closed Sundays.
