Huge excitement in store for lovers of fine food 

Gourmet chef Mario Pattis always creates very special culinary experiences. He is now implementing his latest concept in the restaurant at “Die Gläserne Manufaktur”.

With production of the new e-Golf starting in April 2017, “Die Gläserne Manufaktur” is one step closer to becoming the Centre of Future Mobility. This new direction is also being reflected in the new concept and innovative cuisine being served up in our restaurant. A lot is involved in making this happen. With Mario Patti now at the helm, his motivation is to continue the restaurant’s success in Dresden and beyond since “Die Gläserne Manufaktur” first opened. Going one step further, the passionate chef is working hard with his team to create an unforgettable culinary experience that showcases his signature style.

The renowned Dresden-born chef has extensive experience of creating culinary delights and was the first person to be awarded a Michelin star in what used to be East Germany. Locally and nationally he is famous for the outstanding cuisine in his restaurants, the countless top-class events he has staged and the cookery books he has written. We asked him about his plans for his new restaurant.


Mario, “Die Gläserne Manufaktur” is opening a new chapter with its production of the e-Golf and you’re creating a new culinary offering alongside it. What can we expect?

“Die Gläserne Manufaktur” is a real hit with people for its transparency and openness, allowing visitors to get right up close to the manufacturing process. This is particularly true with the new e-Golf, which is all about clean technology. The restaurant is also going to be transparent to the rest of the building. Specifically it means that guests will have a great view of the kitchen as well. They’ll be able to see the skill involved in preparing and presenting dishes, just as they do with the manufacturing taking place immediately next door. There’ll also be rooms where client meetings can be held. We’re going to be just as transparent, sustainable and authentic with our meals in terms of the raw materials and recipes we serve all the way to our crockery, table linen and cutlery.

“Everything we do is about reinforcing “Die Gläserne Manufaktur” as a total work of art.” Mario Pattis

 And what will guests be able to enjoy?

Just as manufacturing is being realigned, we’ll also be positioning the restaurant as a place that offers excellent quality, with a focus on fresh regional and organic products. We’ll be conjuring up innovative culinary creations with something delicious for all the senses.


What kind of flavours will there be?

A fusion of international cuisine with regional accents, interpreted in a modern way. We’ll also be integrating trends such as clean eating with superfoods to supply the body with energy.

We’ll be procuring what we serve, from vegetables, fish and meat to beer, wine and coffee, from regional partners, purchasing from them directly wherever possible.

We’ve also got plans to offer a small collection of specialities at “Die Gläserne Manufaktur” for you to take home and enjoy.

It’ll be easy on the eye too: an attractive lighting concept will make a wonderful contribution to the pleasant ambiance, enhancing guests’ enjoyment and reinvigorating them. Our intention is for the new restaurant to be a place that offers something to stimulate all the senses. We hope it’ll attract visitors not just to “Die Gläserne Manufaktur”, but to Dresden as well.
