Wine And Dine – In That Or­der

Where Berlin - - DINING -

With more than 200 wines and a kitchen that serves only one main dish a day, Brief­marken has its pri­or­i­ties, and clearly states them on the sign out­side: “Grandi Vini, Pic­cola Cucina.” The Karl- Marx-Allee restau­rant prides it­self on its vast se­lec­tion of vin­tages, which the wine menu cat­e­go­rizes by the four el­e­ments of fire, air, wa­ter, and earth. Many who come to sam­ple a glass or two find them­selves lin­ger­ing in the warm and invit­ing am­biance of the former stam­p­col­lec­tor’s shop, which still re­tains relics of its past, such as the orig­i­nal wall­pa­per that was re­dis­cov­ered dur­ing ren­o­va­tions. A small but sat­is­fy­ing menu of Ital­ian ap­pe­tiz­ers, as well as a sin­gle daily en­trée of home­made pasta, al­lows the lin­ger­ing to last even longer. The added plus of ex­cep­tional ser­vice has al­lowed Brief­marken to en­joy a loyal fol­low­ing purely on word of mouth. Come thirsty. Karl-Marx-Allee 99. T: 030 42025292. www.brief­marken­
