I’ve been asked a lot about the intriguing concept of Stable DC, a Swiss-American restaurant opening soon in Washington DC and premiering at EatsPlace for three days only: February 18 – 20, 2016 starting at 5:30 pm with last seating at 9:00 pm. Walk-ins are welcome, and reservations are encouraged.
And who are the masterminds behind it? Chefs David Fritsche and Silvan Kramer both have very impressive backgrounds here in DC and all around the world.
Chef David’s life is a reflection of this motto, “Live life to cook.” He is a passionate chef that brings a whirlwind of experience and training to each dish he dreams up. Born in Switzerland, he grew up helping his grandmother prepare simple foods and salads in her Swiss Alps hotel. Trained in some of the most prestigious Swiss hotel restaurants, like the Grand Hotel Quellenhof and the Palace Hotel in Gstaad, Chef David opted to continue building his culinary training and passion for cooking by working in some of the great kitchens around the world, including the Madinat Jumeirah and Pisces in Dubai, The Kingsley Hotel in Ireland, the Essex House in the Big Apple, and The Dupont Circle Hotel in Washington, DC. Chef David’s technical foundation is French but his focus is truly international. His priority is to bring the best locally grown ingredients to each dish he prepares whenever possible. His cooking has won him countless awards locally and internationally.
Providing a great dining experience to guests is as important to Chef Silvan as cooking a great meal. Early on in his career, Chef Silvan dedicated time to understanding how to organize and run a kitchen while perfecting his cooking. He understood that serving good food alone was not enough to be successful. The whole team, the front of the house and the kitchen, needed to operate in harmony. To that end, Chef Silvan accepted opportunities that would take him around from the Swiss military, to Lausanne, to a Michelin-star restaurant and a five-star hotel, the Petermann’s Kunstsuben in Zurich, to Hawaii, eventually on to the Madinat Jumeirah in Dubai, the Kingsley Hotel in Ireland, the Essex House in New York City and finally to The Dupont House in Washington, DC. Although Chef Silvan sees himself as a Swiss/French chef, he has a keen interest in ethnic foods as a result of his travels and working alongside staff from different cultures. Chef Silvan’s reputation and dedication to cooking has won him international recognition and awards.
