Dylan Watson Brawn
Dylan Watson Brawn was born in Vancouver, Canada in 1993, supported by a father who spotted his son’s passion for food and cooking, the dedicated Watson-Brawn skipped the traditional route, and jumped in the deep end working his way through several restaurants and studying the intricacies of food in his spare time.
He was the first Westerner to train at Tokyo’s Ryugin, a mercilessly rigourous 3 Michelin Star establishment. He also spent time at the famous Noma that has shone a light on Scandinavian food and heralded a different approach to service.
In 2014 he launched Ernst with friend Spencer Christenson. The private dining experience means you get to enjoy a personal culinary experience at Dylan’s own apartment that celebrates the integrity of specially sourced biodynamic ingredients.
“Where I come from in Vancouver there is long tradition of organic farming which I hope to pioneer here in Berlin.”
Ernst is an eight-seat counter restaurant in Berlin, the restaurant is based around relationships with farmers in the area as well as a handful of meticulously sourced products from abroad.He knows all his suppliers personally, and will excitedly describe them while cooking right before you.
