On understated oak tables, with antique silverware and linen napkins, Kantine Kohlmann serves German and Berlin cuisine – with a modern, fresh and surprising twist. In addition to the dinner menu, there are nine small delicacies that can be combined as desired. These are icons such as ‘Königsberger Klopse,’ served in little jars. At the fireplace near the bar, you can end the evening in comfort and style, with an expertly-prepared cocktail.
With its cool and minimalist interiors and daily-changing menu, Friedel Richter stands out even from the vast choice of eateries on Torstraße. Some of the fresh ingredients and herbs are produced direct at the restaurant and then processed into delicious, creative regional dishes. Here, authentic German cuisine has taken a step into the future.
