Go­ing Crack­ers

Where Berlin - - DINING -

So long, Cook­ies. Make way for Crack­ers! Trust Heinz Gin­dullis to have an­other ace up his culi­nary sleeve. Long since a main­stay on the cap­i­tal’s nightlife and dining cir­cuits, the man known since boy­hood as “Cookie” is the force be­hind two popular Ber­lin restau­rants, Cook­ies Cream and Chipps, not to men­tion his epony­mous Cook­ies club, which was one of the greats on Ber­lin’s party scene for two decades. Last sum­mer, how­ever, it was time for club­bers to bid farewell to the hal­lowed space, which then re­opened in Novem­ber as Crack­ers. The dining hotspot bears more than a few ves­tiges of its club past, in­clud­ing an in­no­va­tive bar that serves ex­per­i­men­tal drinks and a ro­tat­ing ros­ter of in­ter­na­tional and lo­cal DJs four nights a week from 9pm un­til late. Fresh, qual­ity in­gre­di­ents are the culi­nary in­spi­ra­tion for the menu. A night in the su­per- chic space be­gins with a gen­er­ous se­lec­tion of light, re­fresh­ing starters, such as sal­ads, beef tartare, a whole ar­ti­choke served with a trio of zingy sauces, or ce­viche with pomegranate, fol­lowed by cre­ative main dishes that will leave both car­ni­vores and veg­e­tar­i­ans happy.
