Where Berlin - - DINING -

When it’s a high- class, mem­o­rable meal you’re af­ter, head to the Ho­tel Palace Ber­lin, home to the Miche­lin-starred First Floor restau­rant. As would only be fit­ting for a place of this cal­iber, you’ll be in good hands here: chef Matthias Di­ether was named Ber­lin’s Mas­ter Chef in 2013 and Ka­rina Ap­pel­dorn was awarded 2015’s pâtissier of the year by the famed French Gault Mil­lau guide. Di­ether is renowned for his ex­act­ing stan­dards and mod­ern in­ter­pre­ta­tions of French haute cui­sine, mak­ing com­bi­na­tions as un­likely as blue shrimp, pump­kin and berg­amot sing. The plush, el­e­gant sur­round­ings are off­set by the highly mod­ern plat­ings of each dish – ex­pect each course that ar­rives on your ta­ble to be a small work of (ed­i­ble) art. The menu changes of­ten, but this month brings a spe­cial op­por­tu­nity to try some sea­sonal del­i­ca­cies: cel­e­brate Easter at First Floor from 3–5 April with a spe­cial five- or six- course tast­ing menu.
