Good Dining Near Sony Center

Hi All,

My son and I will be in Berlin next month for a few days. This is our second visit to the city and we're very excited about the opportunity to explore again. We'll be staying near the Sony Center and I would love some restaurant recs with great food, relatively casual dress, but price is not an issue.

Thanks for your help Hounds!

    Well, the area is not exactly known for amazing food, but there's Facil @Mandala Hotel which cranks out great food with prices to match, but you said that didn't matter.

    If' you're willing to peruse public transportation (Potsdamer Platz is pretty well connected to other hoods such as Mitte, Prenzlauer Berg, Kreuzberg, Schöneberg and Charlottenburg), it opens up a whole 'nother world of dining.

    Any particular cuisine you're interested in? Also, feel free to peruse my blog (on my profile page) for further recs.

      I can't say I've ever had a good meal around the Sony Center, but if you're looking for a place with two Michelin stars where you can dress casually, try Reinstoff.


      I was there last month and had an excellent meal of modern cuisine made with local "near" ingredients. Great service and well picked wine list, too.

        SB...This looks right up our alley. We're fine in nice jeans?

        We enjoy Bollywood, Indian Cuisine (Northern), which his located in a small shopping center behind the Jewish Memorial. It is an easy walk from the Marriott at Sony Center.
