FINE DIN­ING

Where Berlin - - DINING -

5 – Cinco by Paco Pérez

Cata­lan star chef Paco Pérez’s very first en­deavor out­side Spain is this Miche­lin- starred restau­rant in Das Stue Ho­tel. His aim is to tickle all five senses with avant- garde taste ex­pe­ri­ences that take full ad­van­tage of the fla­vors and in­gre­di­ents of his home coun­try. €€€€. Tue–Sat D. www.5- cinco.com. Drakestr. 1. T: 030.3117220. S Tier­garten. C3

Ban­dol sur Mer

This tiny, hip, and very trendy French restau­rant de­serves ac­co­lades for its food, though part of its pop­u­lar­ity is no doubt due to the fact that Brad Pitt and An­gelina Jolie fa­mously dined here. Reser­va­tions a must. €€–€€€. Daily D. www.ban­dol­surmer.de. Torstr. 167. T: 030.67302051. U Rosen­thaler Platz. E2

Bieber­bau

There’s good rea­son to travel off the beaten track to the Bieber­bau: it’s housed in a lovely 1890s cot­tage, now a pro­tected mon­u­ment, which still bears plenty of his­toric charm. The kitchen serves high-cal­iber re­gional dishes that take ad­van­tage of sea­sonal pro­duce. €€€. Tues–Sat D. www.bieber­bau-berlin. de. Durlacher Str. 15. T: 030.8532390. S+U Bun­de­splatz. C5

Facil

Sit­u­ated in a glass atrium of The Man­dala Ho­tel and ringed by the court­yard’s trees, Facil has mas­tered un­der­stated el­e­gance in both its dé­cor and cui­sine. Dou­ble- Miche­lin- starred chef Michael Kempf is par­tic­u­larly mas­ter­ful with seafood when cre­at­ing his fine menus. €€€€. Mon– Fri L&D. www.facil.de. Pots­damer Str. 3. T: 030.590051234. S Pots­damer Platz. D3

First Floor

Named Best Ger­man Restau­rant of 2012, re­cip­i­ent of a Miche­lin star, and with head chef Matthias Di­ether named Berlin Mas­ter Chef 2013, First Floor has clearly earned its gourmet stripes.

Fis­ch­ers Fritz

Pure, straight­for­ward lux­ury is the for­mula at this restau­rant in the Re­gent Berlin Ho­tel. One of just a hand­ful of Berlin restau­rants to earn two Miche­lin stars, Fis­ch­ers Fritz will not fail to im­press with its el­e­vated cui­sine and finely honed ser­vice. €€€€. Daily B, D. www.fis­ch­ers­fritzber­lin.com. Char­lot­ten­str. 49. T: 030.20336363. U Franzö­sis­che Straße. E3

Früh­sam­mers

Sonja Früh­sam­mer is Berlin’s most cel­e­brated fe­male chef, and her culi­nary prow­ess was fur­ther con­firmed when her restau­rant re­ceived a Miche­lin star in late 2014. This gourmet get­away in a green cor­ner of the city is much loved for its re­laxed, ap­proach­able take on ex­cel­lent cui­sine. €€€. Thu– Fri L, Tue–Sat D. www.fruehsam­mers-restau­rant. de. Flins­berger Platz 8. T: 030.89738628. S Ho­hen­zollern­damm. A5

Horváth

Aus­tria- born chef Se­bas­tian Frank has built him­self a rep­u­ta­tion – and earned a Miche­lin star – with his highly cre­ative, oftentimes min­i­mal­ist use of sea­sonal in­gre­di­ents, from sun­chokes to candied pars­ley root to spruce nee­dles. Vege­tar­ian op­tions avail­able. Warm, wooden in­te­rior and lovely out­door pa­tio for the warmer months. €€€. Wed– Sun D. www.restau­rant- hor­vath.de. Paul- Linck­eUfer 44a. T: 030.61289992. U Kot­tbusser Tor. F4

Hu­gos

On the 14th floor of the In­ter­Con­ti­nen­tal Ho­tel, Hu­gos of­fers panoramic views of the city along with Miche­lin- starred French- Ger­man cui­sine. Its rep­u­ta­tion as one of Berlin’s go-to gourmet des­ti­na­tions is well earned. €€€€. Tue–Sat D. www.hu­gos-restau­rant.de. Bu­dapester Str. 2. S+U Zool­o­gis­cher Garten. C4

Les Solistes

Re­fined yet bold top-notch din­ing has brought this restau­rant in the Wal­dorf As­to­ria wide­spread renown. Un­der the lead­er­ship of star chef Pierre
