Taste Of The Sea­son

Where Berlin - - DINING -

Few things say win­ter more than a bag of hot chest­nuts. The hard, dou­ble-skinned fruits stay warm for a long time and are like minia­ture heaters for freez­ing hands and hun­gry stom­achs. Around the hol­i­day sea­son, Christ­mas mar­kets city­wide roast de­li­cious chest­nuts, per­fum­ing the sur­round­ings with a warm, cozy scent. Wrap your hands around a pa­per cone of roasted and en­joy a hearty taste of Ger­man yule­tide.

Ger­man/Euro­pean. A water­side lo­ca­tion in the mid­dle of the Tier­garten park makes this a lovely spot come warm weather or chilly. Be­sides sat­is­fy­ing meals, vis­i­tors can en­joy a seat in the beer gar­den or a row on the lake in sum­mer or glow­ing fire­places and games of Eis­stockschiessen – a Bavar­ian ice game sim­i­lar to curl­ing – in the win­ter. €.

In­ter­na­tional. This rus­tic house, built in 1898 and lucky to sur­vive two World Wars, was a pub and a Rus­sian restau­rant in two of its many past lives. To­day, it’s a fine restau­rant that seam­lessly in­cor­po­rates French, Rus­sian, and Ger­man culi­nary in­flu­ences in a nos­tal­gic set­ting. €€€. Daily D. www.paris-moskau.de. Alt- Moabit 141.
