To this end, the two world travelers and founders of the award-winning Hamburg concept of the same name have taken over the Seekiste restaurant. What Johannes (Jo) Riffelmacher and Thomas (Cozy) Kosikowski are planning.
On January 1, 2022, the globetrotters from Hamburg by choice will become the new tenants of the Pfahlbau at Böhler Beach, which is scheduled to open for the start of the season in April 2022. In the new project, the gastronomy career changers are reinventing themselves: while in the Salt & Silver restaurants on St. Pauli the dishes are inspired by Latin America and the Levante region, the team around the two founders has now set itself new goals: the "Salt & Silver am Meer" is to become climate-neutral, wants to work in a socially, ecologically and economically sustainable way, as well as capturing the charm of the region and turning it into a taste experience.
For the past three years, the restaurateurs in Hamburg have been growing special herbs and vegetables themselves, which they have learned about on their travels and incorporate into their dishes. This passion is to be significantly expanded in St. Peter Ording. Cozy & Jo can rely on a sworn team in two respects, because the main people responsible, who have already developed the first two Salt & Silver restaurants into supra-regional success concepts, will also accompany the new opening in St. Peter-Ording:
Simon Lindow, a native of Husum, who has been responsible for the implementation of the culinary vision at Salt & Silver since the opening in July 2017, will shape the new kitchen style as creative head and culinary director. Managing partner and sommelier Tobias Beck will keep the overall view. Bar manager Özgür Gezer, who has also helped shape the success of the Salt & Silver restaurants in Hamburg since day one, will be responsible for a surprising beverage concept. Florian Kleinschmidt, responsible for logistics and functionality, is on board to master the challenges of the location in the middle of the Wadden Sea Nature Park.
Salt & Silver can also rely on a proven team: A large part of the old-established Seekiste crew will remain with Böhler Pfahlbau and continue to guarantee high quality and friendly service after the new start.
