Vancouver restaurant Bauhaus, by reviled filmmaker Uwe Boll, makes international dining list

    1 of 6 2 of 6

      Vancouver-based filmmaker Uwe Boll may have been the punching bag for film critics but he's turned into a critics' darling, albeit as a restaurant owner.

      Affirming he's found his true calling, Boll's Bauhaus was one of three Canadian destination restaurants chosen for Diners Club 50 Best Discovery Series.

      The restaurant was one of six establishments selected in the list's mid–U.S. and Canada category.

      Toronto's Alo and Newfoundland's Fogo Island Inn also made the list.

      Bauhaus Restaurant

      Boll and Michelin-star chef Stefan Hartmann opened Bauhaus at 1 West Cordova in Gastown in 2015.

      The modern German menu includes dishes such as wiener schnitzel, German sausage with ham hock and sauerkraut, and goulash with potato dumplings and savoy cabbage.

      However, Hartmann's last day at the restaurant is this Saturday (April 22) as he's leaving to become Tacofino's regional executive chef. Consequently, Boll is bringing in German chef Tim Schulte to become a co-executive chef along with Bauhaus' David Mueller.

      Boll is the director of critically panned films such as House of the Dead, Alone in the Dark, BloodRayne, Postal, and In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale.

      However, the tempestuous and feisty filmmaker hasn't taken any of the criticism lightly. He challenged his critics to boxing matches at an event in 2006 called Raging Boll.

      After his third failed crowdfunding campaign for his film projects, he posted an expletive-filled video appropriately entitled "fuck you all", which has been called his best screen work to date.
