Vienna has a new secret room for connoisseurs of high end champagne and fine cuisine. It all starts with a glass of illuminating Krug Grande Cuvée 166 ème édition at the freshly-baked Krug ambassade Amador in the 19th district.

La Table Krug

It’s nothing new that a fine glass of Krug Champagne goes along pretty well with the unique tastes of Haute cuisine. Therefore Krug teams up with top chefs from all over the world to create new astonishing pairings. Last year Krug even released it’s own Haute cuisine guide  “From forest to fork“.

Krug ambassade Amador

After falling in love in and with Vienna celebrated chef Juan Amador, who’s originally from Germany, opened “Amador” in Vienna, a restaurant that resides in an original wine cellar. 18 points by Gault&Millau and 2 Michelin Stars are statements of their own – all for his special molecular cuisine. But besides the sophisticated cuisine Amador also presents guests with top wines and of course with my favourite kind of champagne – excellent bottles of Krug. As of the 1st of January 2019 Amador has become a Krug Ambassade (the 3rd one in Austria after Dollerer & Filippou).

And like lots of other chefs Juan also lives the motto of a Krug Ambassador: Behind each face, a passion. Behind each life, a story.” Unraveling some truly fascinating characters who all have one thing in common: a self-confessed unconditional love for Krug.

La Table Krug by Amador

Now Juan Amador and Krug joined forces to create a new gourmet hideaway called “La Table Krug by Amador”. Entering through a thick black iron door from the restaurant guests walk along a corridor, that leads to the wine cellar. And at the end you will find a luscious table for a maximum of 8 guests. The 150 year old glass-tiled room (coincidently) has been a former tank for sparkling wines in the past. Now it’s set up with a large wooden table and the unique rough luxury Krug characteristic.

How to get in?

Just order Krug champagne in the Amador restaurant and you will be invited to go backstage. At “La Table Krug” you will get one special course, that’s perfectly paired with your glass of Krug – all in the privacy of the exclusive hidden room.
