OSTERBERGER RESTAURANT: A LEAGUE OF ITS OWN — RECOMMENDED BY ANGIE ZIEHMANN

OSTERBERGER RESTAURANT: A LEAGUE OF ITS OWN — RECOMMENDED BY ANGIE ZIEHMANN

The recently opened Osterberger, right next to Schinkel’s St. Elizabeth’s Church in Mitte, is already predestined to become a new favorite restaurant and meeting place for creative spirits. Between classic tables set on the sidewalk and a window facade that can be opened completely, there is a welcoming, casual ambiance here. The curated materials and sophistication with which the interior was designed to prove class and timeless elegance. Also reflected in their seasonal menu: baked eggplant with finely prepared tomato sauce, roasted cod with white wine foam, pea puree and limes, and delicious French rosé. To finish, a chocolate mousse with raspberries and candied ginger. The Osterberger is bistro cuisine at the highest caliber.

SHED — NATURAL WINE BAR AND DELI FOR SMALL-BATCH BOTTLES AND SEASONAL PLATES

SHED — NATURAL WINE BAR AND DELI FOR SMALL-BATCH BOTTLES AND SEASONAL PLATES

In January 2020, Darius Suski and Łukasz Sołowiej opened Shed, a wine bar and deli that sits unassumingly on the corner of Pannierstraße and Pflügerstraße just a few minutes walk from the pair’s other restaurant, W Pizza. The space feels curated as if the goal is to build Berlin’s dream apartment, starting with the marble tables adorned with flowers by Maggie Coker from Rag and Bone Man. Tiles are offset by wood details, giving the stripped-back space a homely texture, while an asymmetric rise built into the ceiling mimics a shed. The extensive natural wine menu features bottles from small-scale vineyards that aren’t stocked elsewhere in Germany, making each drop a new experience for the palette. Try sparkling wines from Czech Republic, or wine aged in oak for 14 months. To accompany is a small but carefully-selected changing food menu: opt for the charcuterie and cheese board, or dive further into one of their meals such as the homemade three-day brisket served with fried capers and fresh sourdough. In a rush? You can pick up bottles and Italian larder goods to go! (Text: Scarlett Peeters / Photos: Savannah van der Niet & Sophie Döring)

MÖLLERS KÖTTBULLAR: SWEDISH COMFORT FOOD FOR THE CHANGE OF SEASON

MÖLLERS KÖTTBULLAR: SWEDISH COMFORT FOOD FOR THE CHANGE OF SEASON


If you have a need for Swedish meatballs, but don’t require the Swedish furniture that usually accompanies them – Möllers Köttbullar, on Köpenicker Straße, will happily assemble a delicious meal for you, no instructions required. Initially, an idea to impress his Swedish girlfriend, Henrik Möller continued the Köttbullar idea in 2017, serving the traditional dish from a food trailer at festivals. Now partnering with Michael Hubert, the Möllers Köttbullar team serves a quick and tasty treat that is made with high-quality ingredients and sustainability in mind at their restaurant in Wranglerkiez. In addition to the original Köttbullar made from beef, from the farmers Schwäbisch Hall producers group, there are also vegan options: The “Vegibullar”, as well as the vegan mashed potatoes and brown sauce, have been developed in cooperation with the neighboring Restaurant Maria. Served with either fries or mashed potato, cucumber salad, a healthy serving of brown sauce, and topped in the traditional way with Lingonberries, Möllers Köttbullar is a welcome addition to the neighborhood. (Text: Christopher Burrows / Photos: Ramona Razaghmanesh, Jamil Yassine)

HINTERLAND: A TASTE OF COUNTRY LIFE IN KREUZBERG

HINTERLAND: A TASTE OF COUNTRY LIFE IN KREUZBERG

The area around Berlin is a treasure trove of fresh produce, from happy-cow dairy to vivid root veggies. These regional riches serve as inspiration for Hinterland, a great new bistro bringing the best of the countryside to inner-city Berlin. This starts with the interior, which founder and Colorado-native Madeline McLean has decorated in the style of a Landhaus, with farmhouse chairs and wood paneling painted in muted Farrow & Ball-style colors. The dinner menu consists of small “picnic” plates, with our highlight the delicate, salty preserved pike sourced from the crystal clear Stechlinsee and served with garden herbs, rye and butter. Bigger options include the summer peas with poached egg, mussels and brown butter-miso foam for a creamy combo of salt, sweet and savory. Drinks-wise, there are 90+ wines including a solid orange selection plus a pine cone-steeped gin homemade by inhouse master Martin. As with the food, just one mouthful and we were sold.

NOBELHART & SCHMUTZIG ÜBERALL: MICHELIN-STARRED CUISINE HEADS OUTSIDE

NOBELHART & SCHMUTZIG ÜBERALL: MICHELIN-STARRED CUISINE HEADS OUTSIDE

Since 2015, Nobelhart & Schmutzig has been serving lucky diners with regional food cooked to Michelin-starred standards in their Friedrichstraße restaurant. Now it’s time for head chef Micha Schäfer’s kitchen team to go on tour with a new dinner series called Überall that brings their exquisite cuisine to new and surprising settings. Whether at Mitte’s industrial Alte Münze or the dreamy halls of Kulturschloss Roskow in Brandenburg, each dinner is inspired by its location. This is truer than ever at the next in the series: a multi-course food and art experience hosted in the gardens of the Wehrmühle house as part of this year’s Art Biesenthal in Brandenburg (15.08–05.09). At each of the four separate evenings, you will be treated to an alfresco dinner with extensive wine selections accompanied by art performances by a Biesenthal resident artist for an exquisite blend of food and visual culture. The idyllic countryside setting combined with trademark N&S creative cuisine (expect a powerful blend of local ingredients) make these dinners the highlight of the gastronomic summer.

Dinner at Art Biesenthal: Friday 14.08.2010, Saturday 15.08.2020, Friday 21.08.2010 & Saturday 22.08.2010, start 19h. Tickets can be reserved online and include a multi-course dinner and drinks. A shuttle service to and from Biesenthal railway station can be reserved.
