Emma Metzler’s beautiful design and décor make it look more like an art gallery – somewhat fitting for a restaurant in the city’s Museum Embankment (Museumsufer) and in the grounds of the sleek Museum Angewandte Kunst. The spacious bistro’s sleek lines are softened by colourful artwork on the white walls, lobster-red furniture, a wall of glass blocks and thick, navy-blue curtains. Flower arrangements adorn the tables and strings of lightbulbs hang from above. The service is impeccable, and the food comes served as a masterpiece. Emma Metzler is famed for its homemade tarts and juices, but the French-German menu also includes confit pork belly, aubergine, celery and pistachio cream for lunch (12noon-2pm) or hay-smoked razor clams with wakame algae for dinner (6 pm-10 pm). If the weather’s nice, eat outside and walk over the Eiserner Steg bridge after your meal – at night you can gaze over Frankfurt’s sparkling skyline. If you visit on the last Saturday of the month, the museum entrance is free.
