We, Jarin Huber and Denise Furter, met in 2010 in Basel while working for the boutique gastronomy group, Krafft. Jarin is a trained chef and well experienced restaurant manager; Denise a hotel manager, Beer Sommelière and charming hostess. We met quite a while ago and were an immediate match; first at work as colleagues and later on as a couple. While travelling the world every now and then we came to the idea of Matt & Elly in 2017: To combine craft beer with a creative, sustainable and local cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere, where you feel right at home and dream about your next adventure. After a few pop-up concepts in our favorite city Basel – the pop-up bar at Hotel Balade was our personal highlight! – we settled down at the upcoming neighborhood, Erlenmatt in 2019. Our timing wasn’t amazing (yup, COVID happened!), though we’ve been lucky to have the best guests, friends and family, who supported us by joining our craft beer ramp sales, ordered our take out dinners and supported us all the way! – We can’t wait to treat you to our unique Matt & Elly experience!
