Goldener Hahn, Berlin

Tel: 49 30 6188 098's insider take:

The Goldener Hahn ("golden rooster") is a prime example of the Kreuzberg's recent transformation into Berlin's hippest shabby-chic neighborhood. Goldener Hahn's exposed-brick interiors and loud alt-pop soundtrack give the place an international boho feel. But the food is straight-up rich and flavorful Northern Italian, with Venetian-influenced seafood and rustic roasts and ragùs that are deeply satisfying. As starters, both caponata and octopus carpaccio are winners, the ingredients intensified by brining and lots of lemon. The pork loin roast is earthy and garlicky, and rabbit appears both as a pasta sauce and as a meat course on an elegant pile of vegetables and polenta. Definitely reserve, and dress your casual best: This is one of Berlin's more self-consciously hip spots.—Ralph Martin
