RISTORANTE MASELLI — APULIAN FAVORITES AT BERGMANNKIEZ

RISTORANTE MASELLI — APULIAN FAVORITES AT BERGMANNKIEZ

My search for the “Best Italian Restaurant in Berlin 2015″ is already complete; I’ve found Ristorante Maselli. Owner Signore Maselli hails from Bari, the very south of Italy. He has brought with him local specialties like the street food bombette, beef roulades filled with pecorino. The selection of antipasti is wonderful and very satisfying: bean puree with olive oil, tuna carpaccio, eggplant casserole and burrata – which is among the best I’ve had. Continue on with pasta and white beans, dandelion and fermented ricotta or pork rolls. For a secondi, there’s pulpo – the star of Maselli’s logo. Fish and seafood are served only when absolute freshness is guaranteed. Another must is the salsiccia, a coarse sausage with fennel aroma. As for drinks, you’ll sip Apulian wines. All of the four open red wines are pure joy. Tiramisu, espressi and limoncello will lead you to the evening’s end. The digestivo is served and enjoyed with the chef – just like it should be at your favorite restaurant. (Text: Eva Biringer / Photos: Harun Güler)

SOHO HOUSE X THE STORE: NEXT LEVEL SHOPPING EXPERIENCE

SOHO HOUSE X THE STORE: NEXT LEVEL SHOPPING EXPERIENCE

A new store has opened in Berlin, quite literary. The Store, located in the right wing of Soho House, offers a superb array of goods and services under the supervision of Creative Director Alex Eagle. Is it for club members only? No, everyone is welcome! The interior concept is “concrete chic meets wooden chic”. High-end fashion labels like Jil Sander and The Row are infused with functional and modern interior design by Berlin based label New Tendency and design legends, such as Le Corbusier, Jean Prouvé and the like. Beauty addicts will appreciate Cosmetics 27 and Dr. Jackson’s. However, the nail studio by Cheeky Parlour and gentlemen’s barbershop are the highlight here. The idea of this store is not confined only to shopping and looking good, but to inspire and invite customers to linger and discuss. Feel free to browse through records, magazines and books, and sip on a glass of cold pressed juice, The Store’s own production. The in-store restaurant “The Store Kitchen” offers a variety of culinary delights. (Text: Catharina Schick / Photos: KirchnerKutt)

VIVIAN MAIER’S PHOTOGRAPHS ON SHOW AT WILLY-BRANDT-HAUS

VIVIAN MAIER’S PHOTOGRAPHS ON SHOW AT WILLY-BRANDT-HAUS

Nobody would have guessed that the late nanny would become such famed and celebrated artist posthumously. Vivian Maier, born in the twenties in New York, was shy and eccentric. Always alone, she searched for her place in society while living with different families in New York and Chicago. She took an endless amount of photos during her spare time. When she died alone in 2009, she left boxes full of garbage including countless negatives and films. John Maloof bought her estate at an auction, published her works, initiated exhibitions and produced the Oscar nominated documentary “Finding Vivian Maier”. On her quest to make sense out of life, Maier took not only stunning images but captured tragedies in life ­– ever so discreetly with her Rolleiflex camera. You may have already seen the film, but now is your chance to witness her work in person at Willy-Brandt-Haus: a by-gone era frozen in time. (Text: Catharina Schick / Photos: Vivian Maier)

DOROTHÉE BRAND RECOMMENDS: TYPE HYPE CONCEPT STORE

DOROTHÉE BRAND RECOMMENDS: TYPE HYPE CONCEPT STORE

The black and gold logo caught my attention while taking a morning stroll through my old neighborhood. Although the shop was closed, one peek through the window made me come back a few hours later. It did not disappoint. This place is a visual delight, featuring everything from paper goods to homewares, designed and created locally. Based on the concept of featuring alphabets in well known but sometimes forgotten typefaces, it was founded by the design duo Strichpunkt who are clearly passionate about anything “visual”. The Hype features a collection of countless unique and intriguing pieces, so much so that I couldn’t stop myself from coming back on a weekly basis. The store design itself is also quite stunning, but local fare and coffee make the visit an even better experience. I promise, on a grey day this place will fill your color-deprived eyes with a myriad goodness. (Photos: Dorothée Brand)

MARTIN-GROPIUS-BAU: VILLA MASSIMO PARTICIPANTS’ SHOW

It is an honor for any artist to be given a chance to work at Villa Massimo in Rome under the Italian sun. The Accademia Tedesca Roma Villa Massimo, built by a Berlin entrepreneur Eduard Arnhold in 1914, is one of the most important cultural institutions of Germany. Outstanding German artists meet there for a one year stay to challenge their creativity. Some of the famous people who participated in the past are: writer Heinrich Böll (1961), artist Anselm Kiefer (1976) and designer Konstantin Grcic (2010). The result of the grant from 2014 can be viewed this evening (19.2.2015) at Martin-Gropius-Bau. Eli Cortiñ as will show a video work, architect Jan Edler will present a light installation, the composers Hanna Eimermacher and Vito Žuraj are going to perform and landscape artist Thilo Folkerts will be showing garden art projects in two rooms. We’re off to Rome tonight. (Text: Milena Kalojanov / Photos: courtesy of Villa Massimo)
