La­mazère Brasserie

French. Proof that fine din­ing needn’t break the bank is La­mazère Brasserie, a much-lauded din­ing spot that earned “Bib Gour­mand” sta­tus in the revered Miche­lin Guide, a cat­e­gory com­mend­ing great food at good value. The three- course din­ner menu for € 35 will al­low you to sam­ple var­i­ous French food musts, like oeufs co­cotte baked eggs, char­cu­terie plat­ters, duck con­fit, beef tartare, and tarte tatin for dessert. What­ever the kitchen has cook­ing that night, ev­ery del­i­cacy has that je ne sas quoi that has made French cui­sine so fa­mous. €€€. Tue-Sun D. www.lamazere.de. Stuttgarter Platz 18. T: 030.31800712. S Char­lot­ten­burg. B4

French. Many celebri­ties – in­clud­ing Madonna, Sophia Loren, and Robert De Niro – have pa­tron­ized this West Berlin institution over the years.
