Andreas Senn dreamt of opening his own restaurant when he was still a teenager in Austria. Working at local restaurants, Senn began learning the craft, and by his 20s, he spent five years working at Heimatliebe in Kitzbuhel, Austria, which gained him attention and steam.

Trying his luck at his own restaurant, Senn opened a pop-up restaurant in Gusswerk, just outside of Salzburg, under the same name. It did so well that he was ready to open his own place full time.

When Senn opened his first restaurant under his own name in 2014, it took just a few months to earn his first Michelin star. The following year, he did it again, and the restaurant continues to maintain its two-star standing.
