Where Berlin - - DINING -

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. €€. Daily L&D. www.bor­chardt- restau­rant.de. Franzö­sis­che Str. 47. T: 030.81886262. U Franzö­sis­che Straße. E3

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. Then there's the food, veg­e­tar­ian eat­ing gone haute cui­sine, thanks to celebrity chef Stephan Hentschel. €€–€€€. Tue–Sat D. www.cook­i­escream.com. Behren­str. 55. T: 030.27492940. U Franzö­sis­che Straße. E3

Crackers

Ger­man. Heinz “Cookie” Gin­dullis' lat­est en­try into the hy­brid club/restau­rant space fea­tures an in­no­va­tive bar that serves ex­per­i­men­tal drinks and a ro­tat­ing ros­ter of in­ter­na­tional and lo­cal DJs four nights a week from 9pm un­til late. www.crack­ers­ber­lin.com. Friedrich­str. 158. T: 030.680730488. U Franzö­sis­che Straße. E3

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. U RosaLux­em­burg-Platz. F2

Hum­mus & Friends

Is­raeli. Creamy, rich, and fluffy hum­mus with warm pita bread might just be Is­rael's na­tional dish, and with the open­ing of Hum­mus & Friends, it's easy to get in the Ger­man cap­i­tal too. Also on the menu are fresh, col­or­ful sal­ads and side dishes like roasted
