For us, sustainable means that what we do resonates. Together we want to evolve the Schreiberei sustainably as the new favorite place in Munich. A place where guests, employees and partners feel comfortable. Yet also a place where resources are handled with care. 

We are aware of our responsibility and pursue this goal at every level: We solely use fresh and high-quality ingredients, regional - wherever possible - in any case from partners to whom socially and environmentally sustainable products are as important as for us. We not only surround ourselves with things that are beautiful to the eye, but also do us and the planet good: Starting with Munich spring water which does not require long transportation to the work clothes of our employees, the wall paint or woodwork in the interiors or the dishes and every single piece of furniture.

To achieve complete sustainability long-lasting partnerships are needed. We have them. We know them personally and we trust them very much. Together we share responsibility, values and a passion for high quality.


We write dishes – But not alone
aber nicht allein

Understanding our culinary environment is very important to us. We do not only draw inspiration from the common creativity paired with the change of seasons.

In order to discover new products, their diversity and new applications, we go on regular trips with the team, which initially start on our own doorstep. Driven by the enthusiasm for extraordinary products, the eyes of our chefs light up when they hold the victuals of our partners in their hands. These consist of long-range companions and regional partners such as gardeners Johannes Schwarz and Peter Kunze, the Habeker Hof, the biodynamic Obergrashof, the Polting estate (lamb), Kenji Oya (Ozaki Wagyu), the fish farm Birnbaum, Royal Belgian Caviar with their sustainable sturgeon breeding, as well as the baker Arnd Erbel.

More than just chocolate

The miracle of the cocoa bean

Pure flavour. Experience biodiversity. Climate-friendly. No packaging waste. Our Original Beans chocolate partner operates in harmony with nature. Based on the motto “regenerate what we consume”, wild cocoa trees with corresponding forests are fostered and new trees regularly planted. As a result, the cocoa farmers are consistently paid an above-average wage to secure the future of their families and local rainforests.

The heart of ‘Tohru’

The centre of cooking

Even during the pop-up period, the Lohberger Group was by our side and quickly, unbureaucratically and professionally supported us. We are proud and delighted that this traditional Austrian company will continue to remain at our side. It is as part of this close cooperation that a completely new kitchen was built for ‘Tohru in der Schreiberei’ that meets all the standards of modern kitchen technology. This was highly anticipated and the kitchen team around Tohru Nakamura can now unleash their culinary creativity to the full.

With fine knives

Special designs by Homeij

A Damascus steel blade is typically made up of 67 layers on average. Our ‘Homeij’ steak knives are specially designed with a Japanese blade made of AUS-10 Damascus steel with 73 layers. The blade is made from special Aichi steel from the Japanese city of Tokai. The handle of this high-quality knife is made from hand-picked olive wood. The ‘Homeij’ steak knives are finished in Hertogenbosch / Netherlands.

Porcelain / Tableware

Unique porcelain by Annika Schüler

Meals are served on handmade dishes made with great dedication. The choice of crockery plays a major role. We received guidance from Annika Schüler, among others. The Munich-based master ceramicist creates her own plates and bowls for ‘Tohru’, which are unique in terms of their shape, design and feel. This ensures that every dish on the menu is given a suitable, individual setting.

From the well

Essential means of living

The well in the Schreiberei's courtyard garden provided the inspiration for a sustainable philosophy: water can also be pleasurable. It simply needs to be treated properly. For us, this pleasure is an attitude to life that is associated with our values since both employees and guests all enjoy drinking it. Together with our partner at BRITA, we want to honour Munich spring water and ensure the best quality at a flat rate. This reduces packaging waste, long transport routes and carbon emissions.

Entrée & Fin

From champagne to coffee

In addition to a balanced wine list and various brands of champagne from the company ‘Moët Hennessy’, guests at Tohru in der Schreiberei will also find coffee from ‘Man versus Machine’ on the menu. MVSM only roasts the highest quality Arabica coffee. Its roasting house focusses on quality and sustainability and roasts its selected beans in Munich, not far from the Schreiberei. The coffee is prepared using the special ‘Diamante’ portafilter espresso machine from the traditional Italian company ‘La Pavoni’.

Orange brûlée & emerald green

Walls that breathe

Together with the architectural office hildmannwilke, a spatial concept for "Tohru" was developed. With great attention to detail, sensitivity and respect for the heritage of the Schreiberei the walls were designed by artist Silvie Penelope Schmidt with great effort. 

Culture of light

Placed in the right light

A new culture of light can be experienced in Tohru's Schreiberei. The rooms on the upper floor are illuminated by Occhio lighting elements. The lighting concept comes from the architectural office hildmannwilke. Occhio is a Munich-based company that has long been at home in the world and has immediately recognized the atmosphere to be created in the fine dining restaurant. The light accents are intended to create an almost mysterious atmosphere and accentuate only a few highlights in the restaurant as well as on the individual tables. Hence, the stage is set for the menu.

Green Choices

Chef attire makes people

Our chef’s whites partner ‘Le Nouveau Chef’ has been working for years towards a better, more environmentally friendly industry. They produce products that show respect for humans and our planet. Focus is placed on long-lasting materials, waste avoidance, sustainable quality and European production.
