Two Weeks in Europe
I'm headed to Europe for the first two weeks of March with a good friend. This is my first time in traveling to Europe. We plan on eating and drinking as much as possible. I'll be spending time in Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin, and Prauge. I am a line cook at a restaurant in Seattle and would love nothing more than to eat and drink at some really good restaurant, cafes, bars, and clubs. Where should we go? From cheap cafes and street food to fine dining, anything will work!
The XII Apostel in Berlin is a really really good Italian restaurant. It is also especially good for Sunday brunch as it has a separate menu for it. It is found on Bleibtraustrasse.
Ottenthal is quite possibly my favourite restaurant of ALL time and is an expensive yet delightful Austrian restaurant. It is extremely small so booking is absolutely essential but it is a must to go to in Berlin. It is found on Kantstrasse.
I am still thinking of other restaurants in Berlin for you and may give you more before you go.
While XII Apostel (a local chain) serves decent pizza, I wouldn't go so far as calling it a "really really good Italian restaurant" -- there are any number of Italian restaurants in Berlin with way better food (and regional Italian dishes besides pizza -- the best of which is found at I Due Forni in Prenzlauer Berg).
A really good start for you would be to look at the threads specifically about the cities you will be visiting. There's tons of great & valuable information there, and you'll likely find exactly what you're looking for.
That said, we'd all be happy to answer any follow-up questions you may have!
