Good meals in Berlin
We'll be there for 5 days the end of September and early October. We're loking for good restaurants, not fancy tourist places. Can be German or other food. We're staying at the Westin on Friedrichstrasse.
we're just back from Berlin and had a couple of good meals--two of them italian, and one a local trendy spot. The most enjoyable dinner was at a place about a ten minute cab ride from your hotel called Der Godene Hahn--a very authentic italian bistro in a young non-touristy neighborhood. Great antipasto, delicious grilled dorado and redfish, and very well prepared linguine with seafood. Best part was the wine, music (bartender has a huge vinyl music collection) and the local atmosphere. Very cool place.
Good dinner at Bouchardt, right near your hotel for local high end trendy, and also really enjoyed Bacco Di Bucco, another italian not far.
