Germany's second most popular destination after Berlin is a city that enjoys contradicting itself. It's a place that's held on to age-old folk traditions but also serves as a haven for high-minded sophistication. It has a vibrant arts scene and a staggering array of museums yet also hosts the popular Oktoberfest. It should be no surprise then, that its thriving restaurant scene offers food and ambience of infinite variety. This selection of innovatively designed restaurant, bar and cafe interiors, copiously illustrated with over 130 color photographs and recipes from selected hot spots, serves as a guide to Munich's most fashionable dining destinations.
