In­ter­na­tional. The new branch of the Char­lot­ten­burg es­tab­lish­ment, this cen­tral restau­rant is bound to be­come a pop­u­lar des­ti­na­tion among Ber­lin­ers thanks to its cre­ative dishes,which in­clude a tomato and gin­ger soup, a Thai chicken salad with nuts, or mush­room risotto with car­da­mon. €€–€€€.

Bor­chardt

Ger­man/French. A fa­vorite hob­nob­bing spot of the rich and fa­mous, Bor­chardt is pop­u­lar for both its food (es­pe­cially the sch­nitzel) as well as the op­por­tu­nity to see and be seen. €€.

Cook­ies Cream

Vege­tar­ian. A whole new kind of vege­tar­ian din­ing. First, there’s get­ting there, which feels more like go­ing to an un­der­ground club than a restau­rant.

The Grand

Ger­man. The so­phis­ti­cated sup­per club, with ori­gins reach­ing back to 1842, boasts an Amer­i­can grill that makes its in­ter­na­tional ar­ray of steaks among the best in town. The up­stairs lounge (and, in par­tic­u­lar, its cock­tails) at­tracts a deca­dent late-night scene. €€€. Mon– Fri L, Daily D. www.the-grand-berlin.com. Hirten­straße 4. T: 030.278909555.
