Chef de Cuisine
Product, quality and regionality are at the forefront.
Since September 2018, Peter Duransky has been the new Chef de Cuisine responsible for THE LOFT at SO/Vienna. Duransky, originally from Slovakia, completed cooking training in his home country and began his career at Kampa Group's award-winning restaurant "Le Monde," where he has already been able to work his way up to sous-chef. In the large competition "Bocuse d´Or" he secured first place in the category "meat" in 2010 and 2nd place in the overall ranking. The 33-year-old's line reflects a refreshingly clear reduction to the essentials. Product, quality and regionality are at the forefront. In 2019 he earned the first Michelin star for himself and once again for Das LOFT. European cuisine - creative, cosmopolitan and surprising.
Only with teamwork we can achieve something...
After many years of experience in fine dining, I have been able to gain a lot of experience. During my time in London, I was honored to be able to work for various Michelin-starred restaurants. This made it possible for me to bring my skills and knowledge to perfection. That is why it is very important to me to pass on what I have learned to my team. I am all the more pleased to receive a Michelin star, because without efficient teamwork, this would not have been possible. It is a personal concern to me every day that my guests feel that this is not only my work, but also my hobby.
Cuisine style cocktails
Already since 2013 Francesco Camello has been recommending, mixing and creating drinks for our Das LOFT guests with loving attention to detail.
The native Bavarian with an Italian background started his career in Kitzbühel. Following 4 years abroad, he now brings international trends and know-how to Das LOFT and enjoys the opportunity to share knowledge from around the world with our guests. Herbs, fruits and a wide range of spices play an important role here.
The Das LOFT has a new Head Sommelier. Since January 2019, Miguel Seifert has been the new head sommelier for the DAS LOFT at the SO/ Vienna. Already during his school education at the end of the 90s, the Viennese was able to gain his first experiences as a sommelier. After several smaller stops in Vienna, Miguel landed at Ober-legende Rudolf Ober & Christian Gansterer, where he was able to earn their trust after a short time and finally managed their wine cellar. "Through many tasting evenings and workshops with winegrowers and suppliers, I created a large network and thereby developed an enthusiasm for pure wines." After his time as a restaurant manager in Kristians Monastiri, Park Hyatt and Marktwirtschaft/Die Liebe Miguel seized the opportunity and became a part of the SO/ Vienna. "I am now happy to introduce my idea of wine to the guests of the SO / Vienna and pamper them with an exquisite collection."
