SIMPLY MODERN DINING — MICHELBERGER RESTAURANT

SIMPLY MODERN DINING — MICHELBERGER RESTAURANT

It’s all too easy to overlook dining options in hotels, but Michelberger Restaurant is an incredible example of what you might be missing by doing so. Tiled walls glow with warm light from starlike orbs that dangle from the ceiling, and long communal tables are bedecked with flowers, candles and inviting place settings. The food reflects the effortless space with dishes that are refined in their simplicity – a true homage to the quality of Michelberger’s ingredients. From the house-cured duck breast, sliced thin to delicately shelter fragrant melon and finished with fresh herbs to the smooth, smoked mashed potatoes topped with slightly sweet fermented peach and salty, crispy bits of black pudding, Chef Alan Micks takes you on a journey using solely organic ingredients, that are, where possible, locally sourced and seasonal. Pair that with an attentive, knowledgeable service staff, and you’ve got a restaurant that’s raising the bar on approachable modern dining in Berlin – one just happens to be in a hotel.
