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.
