Oktoberfest in New York


Oktoberfest in New York

Justine Hand October 12, 2012

Early this week we featured the best of New-York deli cuisine in Berlin. Now we present the flip-side: best of German culinary tradition in New York.

Located in Gotham's West Village and Lower East Side, Landbrot is a bakery and bar "celebrating the rich culinary traditions and hearty spirit" of Germany. Serving an array of homemade baked-goods as well as German fare and micro-brews, Landbrot offers a taste of Germany from morning until the-wee-hours-of-the night.

Conceived by Courtney Fikri of Cenk Fikri Inc. for her client, German businessman Volker Herrmann, the design—a seamless blend of New York, industrial-loft style and the cozy, wooded, comfort of a traditional German cafes—was executed with the help of David Howell architects.

Above: Combining the best of both worlds, Landbrot's marble and subway tile interior evokes the lofty style of some of New York's old-school restaurants but still maintains the warmth and intimacy of Bavarian style.

Above: Rustic touches like these water jugs and spice containers add to the "homey" vibe.

Above: Opposite the salt chairs, banquettes feature cushions, custom-made from 300-year-old flour sacks that Courtney found in German barns.
