One night in Berlin city

ToEatorNottoEat Aug 16, 2011 06:42 PM


I'm new to this board, flying to Berlin for one evening staying at:

Radisson Blu Hotel, Berlin
Karl-Liebknecht-Strasse 3
D-10178 Berlin Germany

Would like one great restaurant for Comfort German food.

Not overly expensive, just good food, not out to impress anybody.

Comfortable setting, not pretensious.

Love German Food or just good European cuisine, pork to beef to seafood.

I read various other posts, will be without a car.

    I always recommend Markthalle in Kreuzberg http://www.weltrestaurant-markthalle....

    Great German food, classic atmosphere and reasonable prices.

    It's relatively easy to get to via public transport from where you are staying.

      Thank you, just booked a reservation here, what dishes would you recommend too please?

      They told me on the phone they are a block away from Jolesch & Mitterhofer

      Would you still pick Markhalle as the main dinner spot?

        I'd go to Mitterhofer or Jolesch instead. (just my opinion).

          Linguafood :) hi - i am traveling with a vegan in Berlin next week. We have 4 nights. We are foodies and i eat anything. i am NOT a big fan of traditional german food; but have limited experience with the high end type. We are staying at the Hotel De Rome in the Mitte. We also love creative cocktails and tequila. Thoughts? thanks so much!

            Hola. I'm not so well-informed about vegan options in Berlin, but I know of a few.

            La Mano Verde in Charlottenburg is vegan, as is Seerose on Mehringdamm in Kreuzberg.

            You might also give some of the Chinese options in town a try? Tian Fu for good Sichuan (Wilmersdorf), Wok Show for delicious dumplings (Prenzlauer Berg), or Good Friends for Cantonese (Charlottenburg).

            Yam Yam for Korean (Mitte) or Dudu Berlin for Panasian.

            If you want to splurge, check out Fischer's Fritz in Mitte - 2 Michelin stars specializing in fish and seafood (not sure about vegan options) or Margaux (1 Michelin star) which has become quite famous for doing an entire tasting menu with vegetables.

            Cookies in Mitte also has a vegetarian menu and isn't as high-end.

            Great cocktail bars, in no particular order (tequila's not as popular as it was a couple years ago, the big thing these days is rum):

            Victoria Bar (Schöneberg)
            Stagger Lee (Schöneberg) - MUST try their Mint Julep!
            Reingold (Mitte) - one of the few smoking bars, FYI.
            Beckett's Kopf (Prenzlauer Berg)

            Feel free to ask more questions if my suggestions didn't quite 'hit the spot' yet '-)
