The restaurant chain Pepe Nero opened its third restaurant in Munich's inner city in January 2015. It presents a cosy urban style in the Lehel Carré thanks to the comprehensive conversion work based on a concept by interior designer Martin Schmöller and Daniel Katanneck.
Whereas opulent marble cuddled up with red velvet prior to the takeover by the Pepe Nero restaurant, open partition walls, generous windows and a fresh green now define the picture. 80 black lacquered models of the bentwood classic chair 214 from the year 1859 and 50 chairs model 107 - Robert Stadler's modern reinterpretation of the Vienna Coffee House Chair - elegantly fit in with the contemporary ambience. The chairs that are especially characterised by their iconic backrests provide the space with lightness and solidity. At the new Pepe Nero, they fully do justice to Thonet's café and bistro tradition.
