Where Berlin - - DINING -

Hasir

Turk­ish. The lit­tle Turk­ish grill house ru­mored to be the birth­place of the döner ke­bab in the 1970s has since ex­panded to six lo­ca­tions around the city. The orig­i­nal restau­rant, near Kot­tbusser Tor, is a very pop­u­lar spot for try­ing the full spec­trum of what Turk­ish cui­sine has to of­fer – far be­yond the ke­bab. €€.

Jo­lesch

Aus­trian. The din­ing room is el­e­gant yet un­der­stated and this Aus­trian restau­rant di­vides its menu into two sec­tions: “mod­ern” and “clas­sic.” The for­mer means cre­ations like smoked veal tartare with el­der­flower; the lat­ter re­fined ren­di­tions of home-style dishes like Tafel­spitz beef or sch­nitzel. €€.

Kimchi Princess

Korean. “Let them eat kimchi,” im­plores the web­site for this hip, pop­u­lar Korean restau­rant. The house spe­cialty is the meaty table­top bar­be­cue to be split be­tween two or more din­ers, which comes with all the tra­di­tional side dishes in­clud­ing, of course, kimchi. €€.

Sale e Tabac­chi

Ital­ian. A stone’s throw from Check­point Char­lie, an area that’s some­thing of a culi­nary waste­land, lies this el­e­gant Ital­ian restau­rant known for at­tract­ing celebri­ties. Try the ri­cotta-and mint- stuffed zuc­chini blos­soms, a pop­u­lar starter. €–€€. Daily L&D. www.sale- e-tabac­chi.de. Rudi- Dutschke-Str. 23. T: 030.2521155. U Kochstraße. E4

Spindler

Ger­man/Euro­pean. Head chef Ni­co­las Gemin, for­merly of Miche­lin-starred Pauly Saal, wows din­ers with up­scale twists on Ger­man-Euro­pean cui­sine: Think cured salmon with beet pick­les and ri­cotta, oc­to­pus and chorizo, or lamb shoul­der with smoth­ered Jerusalem ar­ti­chokes. Also serves break­fast and week­end brunch. €€–€€€. Mon– Fri L, daily D. www.spindler-ber­lin.net. Paul-Lincke-Ufer 42. T: 030.69598880. U Kot­busser Tor, U Schön­le­in­straße. F4

Spindler & Klatt

Asian-Euro­pean fu­sion. Restau­rant, lounge, and club in one, Spindler & Klatt makes full use of its prime river lo­ca­tion. In the sum­mer, the water­side ter­race is a mem­o­rable spot to en­joy the menu of Pan-Asian dishes, from fine sushi to siz­zling tuna steaks and dry-aged Ir­ish steaks hot off the grill. Even in colder months, the chic, post-in­dus­trial in­te­rior – built in the 1800s as an army bak­ery – is un­for­get­table too. On Fri­days and Satur­days, the spot trans­forms into a club from 23pm. €€€. Daily D. www.spindlerk­latt.com. Köpenicker Str. 16–17. T: 030 319881860. U Sch­le­sis­ches Tor. G4
