SPINDLER — SOPHISTICATED DINNER & SUN TERRACE CAFÉ

SPINDLER — SOPHISTICATED DINNER & SUN TERRACE CAFÉ

Leather chairs, chess tiles, a hand-written “reserved” card with my name. A classic bar crowned by a made-to-measure wooden construction, heaters painted in a specific shade. I assume even the plants have their own caretakers here. Frank Spindler’s eponymous restaurant is love for detail, designed from scratch by his girlfriend Karolina Preis. Sitting at Spindler you will feel like you’re in Cape Cod, or rather Nice — the cook is from the South of France at least. However it’s about cosmopolitan spirit, sophistication and service. Here comes a quince drink, served by a waiter dressed in white. A salmon starter on the table, so beautifully arranged it’s eye candy. The menu is simple, offering just a couple of starters, mains, sides and desserts, yet there’s enough choice for every taste. Regional-international cuisine in a wonderfully lit ambience, it’s the perfect place for two to dine and spend quality time. As it’s getting darker outside it’s becoming cozier inside. If you’d like to forget about Berlin just for one evening, this is the place to go. Or opt for the opposite: the terrace facing Landwehr Kanal. Spindler is – just like Chan, Frank’s Asian restaurant next door – the perfect sunny spot. We’ll have a sundowner and return for brunch the next day. (Text: Nina Trippel / Photo: Klaus Lange)

SCHWARZHOGERZEIL — NEW LOCATION, LOOK & LABELS

SCHWARZHOGERZEIL — NEW LOCATION, LOOK & LABELS

If you were a regular to Schwarzhogerzeil, you’ll have to update your cerebral navigation system: the fashion store is now located at Torstraße. Bye-bye Mulackstrasse. Owner Nicole Hogerzeil was looking for a new location and has found one which hosts the best of both former shops. The new premises, like the two before, has been designed by Sylvester Koziolek who created bespoke furniture and a beautiful 14 meter wall collage. The racks feature Hogerzeil’s favorite brands such as Isabel Marant, Carven and Berlin label Perret Schaad. New brands like Dries van Noten and Marni complete the fine selection. All this has made Schwarzhogerzeil a place we want to shop at even more. It stocks fashion that’s not only nice to look at but will eventually become our wardrobe favorites in the years to come.

ELISABETH RUSHE RECOMMENDS: HALLESCHES HAUS

ELISABETH RUSHE RECOMMENDS: HALLESCHES HAUS

Hallesches Haus is a newly opened general store and restaurant by Michelle Casciolo, Oliver Cayless and Jillian May, under the awesome arches of the historic building “Postamt 61″. Step out at Hallesches Tor, then step inside HAHA to plunder excellently curated home goods. There’s joyful terrariums, household tools to ensure those chores get done, and Pendleton blankets to ward off the harshest Berlin Winter. Bask in the artfully stocked store with a beautifully made coffee and just try to resist the freshly made in-house sweets and savoury eats, as well as granola and preserves by Black Isle Bakery. While Hallesches Haus has opened its store and coffee bar, the fully-fledged restaurant will be ready in June – though chef Joe Parenti (Zuni, California) is already on board serving up small lunch plates. Stop by to give your local general storekeepers a warm welcome and get a taste of things to come. Why not make a day of it with the Amerika-Gedenkbibliothek across the road. (Text & Photo: Elizabeth Rushe)

KATERMARKT AT GLASHAUS: THE NIGHT FLEA MARKET

KATERMARKT AT GLASHAUS: THE NIGHT FLEA MARKET

The variety of flea markets is one of Berlin’s highlights. One that I recommend without hesitation is the Katermarkt, which took place at Möhrchenpark last year. This year, the organizers collaborated with Glashaus to bring us this special market once a month. Aside from tchotchkes, homemade bags, and jewelry there will be an outstanding culinary program. Some peaks: Vietnamese cuisine by Toctoc and tasty dumplings from Knödelwirtschaft. Have something to offer this eclectic mix? Stall space is still available, but must be reserved soon. (Text: Anna-Lena Charbonnier)

CITY VS NATURE: CYPRIEN GAILLARD AT SPRÜTH MAGERS

CITY VS NATURE: CYPRIEN GAILLARD AT SPRÜTH MAGERS

French artist Cyprien Gaillard is on a rapid and fiery rise to fame. His diverse fan-base is growing exponentially as his voice reaches the ears of those unappeased by the same-old, same-old. While his work is not easily defined, a common trend is the manipulation of the familiar, used to reveal what hides between the homogenized lines of day-to-day life. His means of narration — montages of sculpture, painting, etching, photography, video, performance and large-scale invention — act as something transcendental, a method of speaking to diverse bodies through language of the uncanny. Until mid July 2015, his work Nightlife (2015) will be displayed at the exhibition “Where Nature Runs Riot”. The film, which takes place in Los Angeles, Cleveland, and Berlin, reconfigures time-based mediums of film and music to infuse the apparent ordinary with a sense of anarchism — “a hallucinatory riot of urban botany”.
