Chef Anna Matscher runs Zum Löwen with her husband Alois (the wine director) and her daughter Elizabeth (the hostess). A renovated country barn houses the restaurant, and the space’s modern interpretation of classic bucolic style mirrors the sophisticated fare prepared, served, and paired by the Matscher family. Anna Matscher is a celebrity in Alto Adige’s culinary world for her sweet and easy manner—traits that are evident in her cuisine. Her Millefeuille of Knödelscheiben and Venison Ragout extracts the gamey flavor of the meat and adds layers of light-as-air dumplings to soak up the savory juices.
