Concierge.com's insider take:
This fashionable bar and restaurant in the Schanze district—a subdued neighborhood that is nonetheless home to many of Hamburg's newer restaurants and bars—is located in a former shoe shop. The seasonally adjusted, upscale fare, including fennel-stuffed calamari over gazpacho, potato soup with white truffles, and venison with baby turnips and potato cakes, is smartly executed. The crowd is young and chirpy, and the wine list is especially good on tangy German whites, but until Germany passes its antismoking ban, beware of the first floor. Credit cards are not accepted, and reservations are advised for dinner.
