There are definitely easier tasks out there than the one that Daniel Zeindlhofer has taken. At the beginning of 2020 he opened IGNIV on behalf of Andreas Caminada on Marktgasse in the middle of Zurich’s picturesque old town. At Zeindlhofer’s side is his partner, Ines Triebenbacher, who runs the front of house and is equally as friendly as her chef boyfriend.
This young man is a genuinely pleasant conversation partner thanks to his open, direct and authentic character.
“We love to share” is the motto of IGNIV, and Zeindlhofer believes that as a chef that is an amazing basis to start from. When the guests don’t keep dishes to themselves but share them around, the atmosphere in the restaurant goes up a notch straight away, he continues. The passionate Austrian knows exactly how to combine the IGNIV concept with his own creativity, and describes his cooking as fun, colourful and cosmopolitan.
