Gstaad, 17 July 2020 – Gstaad is taking its culinary excellence to new heights. Star chef Marcus G. Lindner is to become head restaurateur of Bergbahnen Destination Gstaad AG and, as of the upcoming winter season, will be cooking at the new Bergrestaurant Eggli. Lindner is one of Switzerland’s leading restaurateurs. It is thanks to his creations that the Mesa Restaurant in Zurich became the city’s No. 1. He has also made an impact in Gstaad on several occasions. At the Alpina Gstaad he has garnered a Michelin star as well as 18 Gault-Millau points and has managed the restaurants Chesery and Park Hotel.

For the connoisseur, Gstaad has a wide range of culinary treats in store. Besides village inns and Beizli alpine eateries, the destination also boasts no fewer than 16 Gault-Millau restaurants over a very small area. With Marcus G. Lindner, winter guests will now have even more places to enjoy at this ski resort from December onwards. As head restaurateur of Bergbahnen Destination Gstaad AG (BDG), the Vorarlberg-born chef will be in charge of the mountain restaurants and become a member of the management. Among other ventures, he will open the new Bergrestaurant Eggli and, from December 19, he will also be cooking on Gstaad’s local mountain.

Marcus G. Lindner has enjoyed close links with Gstaad for many years and is looking forward to the new challenge: ‘My ambition is to bring the quality that already exists in Gstaad to the mountains. One of my first projects for instance will be to help design the cuisine at the new mountain restaurant. It will consist of a mix of high-quality culinary offers and simple, down-to-earth dishes. I will let you know more in December, but I’m really looking forward to the season getting underway.’

CEO Matthias In-Albon, BDG Managing Director, says: ‘We’re proud to welcome top chef Marcus G. Lindner as a new member of the Gstaad Bergbahnen family. Our Executive Chef will take our mountain fine dining up to the next level, in keeping with the expectations of our discerning guests.’
