Düsseldorf may offer a host of fine-dining options, many world-class and several Michelin-starred – but you won’t find any pretension here. Locals are just as comfortable grabbing a pint of Altbier in a brewery as they are enjoying a meal over a white tablecloth. This Rhineland city is also a home away from home for many business travellers-turned-expats from across Europe and has the continent’s third-largest Japanese community – diversity that’s reflected in the city’s ever-evolving food scene. So whether you’re after a hearty bowl of ramen or a traditional Westphalian Blutwurst (blood sausage), this selection of the best restaurants in Düsseldorf offers something to suit every taste.
