IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - May 03, 2017) - Gaggenau, the elite-luxury brand for built-in home appliances, presents Bistro 1683, a series of intimate dining experiences that unite technology and world-class culinary arts. Gaggenau Bistro 1683 is inspired by the recent success of Restaurant 1683 in New York City, a multi-sensory four night pop-up that took guests on an sensorial journey into the origins of the contemporary luxury brand.

"Based on the overwhelming interest and nationwide attention surrounding Restaurant 1683, we are now delivering a taste of Gaggenau throughout the U.S. with Bistro 1683. The exclusive invite-only series of events will ignite the senses with fine cuisine, artful design and extraordinary and immersive de?cor.
