About Mark Steuer

At Funkenhausen, chef Mark Steuer draws inspiration from his Charleston, South Carolina, upbringing and German heritage to create dishes that revisit those he grew up with while still making them uniquely his own. In the hands of Steuer, though, these traditionally heavy dishes become lighter versions of themselves. His food combines Southern and Bavarian flavors to create a soulful mash-up of cuisines, cultures and memories that’s personal but doesn’t take itself too seriously. Our name along with the funk music on permanent rotation is a tip-off of what you can expect.
