Fine dining in Berlin

SamanthaNYC Dec 11, 2011 07:04 PM

I will be in Berlin, Germany in January and looking for some recommendations for where to go for fine dining business dinners - looking for a combination of great food and first class environment. I hear the fine dining restaurant at the Adlon hotel is great as is Rutz and Hartmann's. Any other recommendations? Open to types of cuisine - doesn't have to be European / continental. Thanks.

    Do not miss Die Spindel - www.spindel-berlin.de.
    Located in the far east.

    Of the other places mentioned so far I can confirm Hartmann's and ETA Hoffmann
    Not mentioned so far, but for me still the most consistent remains VAU.

      "Far east"? That place is half-way to Poland '-)

        Considering that their wine and food is half up to heaven, I don't mind the 30 minutes tram ride.

        Reinstoff is also a good choice. It is in what used to be a warehouse in Mitte and is in a very modern setting. They have 7 or 8 choices to choose from and you decide how many courses you want. We ate there last Christmas Eve. (If you go to the thread Christmas in Berlin, I outline what we had to eat.) It is now a Michelin 2 star.
        Facil is similar to Reinstoff - small plates, modern and fancy and when the roof is open spectacular view.
        What about Regner-Patzsch? The food is excellent but the atmosphere isn't fancy. I will let Lingua tell you about R-P since it is one of her favorite restaurants. Also if you go on the Berln threads, there is alot of info on other fine restaurants in Berlin. These are three that I have eaten at.

          As much as I like R-P, it doesn't really fit the bill for fine dining, which is what I thought the OP was specifically looking for.

          I've thought of some more:

          Bocca di Bacco
          Noi Quattro
          ETA Hoffmann
