With its star-studded pedigree, Dóttir was slated for success even before it officially opened its doors this spring. The hip Nordic hotspot is the latest project from Stephan Landwehr and Boris Radczun, the restaurateurs behind both Michelinstarred Pauly Saal as well as Grill Royal, the upscale steakhouse that’s a renowned celebrity favorite. The culinary mastermind in the Dóttir kitchen is chef Victoria Eliasdóttir, who creates minimalist yet bold dishes that pay homage to her culinary roots in Iceland and Sweden. Even at the age of 27, Eliasdóttir’s dishes are confident and creatively inspired, due perhaps in part to a strong artistic upbringing – halfbrother Olafur Eliasson is one of the stars of Berlin’s art scene. The menu changes weekly to take advantage of the season's freshest produce, with a strong emphasis on fish, like Atlantic halibut and cod delivered straight from the Baltic Sea. Look forward to dishes like marinated trout roe with pickled onions and garden cress or crispy-skinned cod fillet with pureed parsley root, and savor a taste of the North. Mittelstr. 41.
