Döner Haus is bringing real German-style Döner kebabs to New York City (official opening March 20th).

Originated in the 1950s by Turkish immigrants, the Döner quickly became a staple made with German ingredients and Turkish seasonings served on flatbread. Nikolaus von Solodkoff, who was born in Germany and moved to New York City in 2010, dreamed of opening a “real German Döner,” and now that dream is coming to fruition with the help of A2Z Restaurant Consulting, known for launching fast casual concepts.

Döner Haus only offers three menu items: Döner Kebab, Döner Box and Haus Fries. All of Döner Haus’s gyro cones are produced exclusively for them by a German-Turkish manufacturer. Their crown jewel, Beef Döner, uses 100% Choice Top Round cut into thin slices, marinated for 48 hours, and then stacked together. Also offered is Chicken Döner, made from leg meat that is marinated for 48 hours, and a Vegan Döner that will be available soon. There are no fillers of any kind, such as wheat or soy, they are 100% meat and 100% halal. Döner Haus says that way they can bring delicious, authentic German-style Döner kebabs to everyone.

Döner Haus is a small, walk-up storefront with a kitchen designed for efficiency, with one side catering to window service customers and the other exclusively catering and delivery. Döner Haus is offering several promotions for its opening, including discounts for all uniformed city workers and a midnight happy hour starting at 12AM to closing time to service patrons of the many bars, clubs, and restaurants nearby.

Döner Haus is located at 240 East 14th Street, New York, NY 10003 (646) 590-2564
