5 – Cinco by Paco Pérez

Cata­lan star chef Paco Pérez’s very first en­deavor out­side Spain is this Miche­lin- starred restau­rant in Das Stue Ho­tel. His aim is to tickle all five senses with avant- garde taste ex­pe­ri­ences that take full ad­van­tage of the fla­vors and in­gre­di­ents of his home coun­try. €€€–€€€€. Tue–Sat D. www.5- cinco.com. Drakestr. 1. T: 030.3117220. S Tier­garten. C3

Fis­ch­ers Fritz

Pure, straight­for­ward luxury is the for­mula at this restau­rant in the Re­gent Ber­lin Ho­tel. One of just a hand­ful of Ber­lin restau­rants to earn two Miche­lin stars, Fis­ch­ers Fritz will not fail to im­press with its el­e­vated cui­sine and finely honed ser­vice. €€€€. Daily B, L, D. www.fis­ch­ers­fritzber­lin.com. Char­lot­ten­str. 49. T: 030.20336363. U Franzö­sis­che Straße. E3

Früh­sam­mers

Sonja Früh­sam­mer is Ber­lin’s most cel­e­brated fe­male chef, and her culi­nary prow­ess was fur­ther con­firmed when her restau­rant re­ceived a Miche­lin star in late 2014. This gourmet get­away in a quiet, green cor­ner of the city is much loved for its re­laxed, ap­proach­able take on ex­cel­lent cui­sine. €€€. Thu– Fri L, Tue–Sat D. www.fruehsam­mer­srestau­rant.de. Flins­berger Platz 8. T: 030. 89738628. S Ho­hen­zollern­damm. A5

Horváth

Aus­tria- born chef Se­bas­tian Frank has built him­self a rep­u­ta­tion – and earned a Miche­lin star – with his highly cre­ative, of­ten­times min­i­mal­ist use of sea­sonal in­gre­di­ents, from sun­chokes to can­died pars­ley root to spruce nee­dles. Veg­e­tar­ian op­tions avail­able. Warm, wooden in­te­rior and lovely out­door pa­tio for the warmer months. €€€. WedSun D. www.restau­rant- hor­vath.de. Paul- Linck­eUfer 44a. T: 030.61289992.

Hu­gos

On the 14th floor of the In­ter­Con­ti­nen­tal Ho­tel, Hu­gos of­fers great views of the city along with the Miche­lin- starred French- Ger­man cui­sine of chef Thomas Kam­meier. Its rep­u­ta­tion as one of Ber­lin’s go-to gourmet dest­wina­tions is well earned. €€€€. Tue–Sat D. www.hu­gos-restau­rant.de. Bu­dapester Str. 2.S+U Zool­o­gis­cher Garten. C4

Les Solistes

Re­fined yet bold top-notch dining has brought this restau­rant in the Wal­dorf As­to­ria wide­spread renown. Un­der the lead­er­ship of star chef Pierre Gag­naire, the menu has clear French in­flu­ences while dar­ing to in­cor­po­rate fla­vors from In­dia, the Mid­dle East, and fur­ther afield. €€€€. Daily D, closed Sun. www.wal­dor­fas­to­ri­aber­lin.com. Har­den­bergstr. 28. T: 030.8140000. S+U Zool­o­gis­cher Garten, U Kur­fürs­ten­damm. C4

Lorenz Ad­lon Essz­im­mer

Like Fis­ch­ers Fritz, the Lorenz Ad­lon Essz­im­mer has two Miche­lin stars and a well- earned spot in the up­per ech­e­lon of Ber­lin’s finest restau­rants. No de­tail is spared in the cre­ation of an un­for­get­table dining ex­pe­ri­ence, and the mas­ter­ful hand of chef Hen­drik Otto is ev­i­dent in ev­ery taste. €€€€.

Pauly Saal

Lo­cated in the gym­na­sium of a for­mer Jewish girls’ school, Pauly Saal’s chic, hip dé­cor is matched by a menu of equally cre­ative Ger­man cui­sine, which was newly awarded a Miche­lin star in 2013. Meat dishes made from lo­cal game are a spe­cial high­light. €€€. Daily L&D, closed Sun. www.paulysaal.com. Au­gust­str. 11-13. T: 030.33006070. S Oranien­burger Straße. E2

Tim Raue

From his hum­ble be­gin­nings grow­ing up in Kreuzberg, Tim Raue has be­come one of the most known culi­nary names in Ber­lin, plumb­ing the Far East for his in­spi­ra­tion. His name­sake restau­rant serves re­fined in­ter­pre­ta­tions of Asian cui­sine, such as his famed per­sonal take on Pek­ing Duck. €€€€. Tue–Sun L&D. www.tim-raue.com.
