Concierge.com's insider take:
Chef Karl Wannemacher's charming restaurant, a Berlin classic, has been delighting Berliners since 1982, and over the years, his cooking has evolved in tandem with the city's increasingly cosmopolitan tastes. Among the banquettes and oil paintings that decorate the dining room, you can feast on fare inspired by traditional Alsatian recipes, but which occasionally borrows from Asian kitchens. Wannemacher's wife, Ingrid, is your host; she manages her staff with warmth and generosity as well as precision. Wannemacher's menu changes often, but dishes like his smoked-eel-and-horseradish terrine, pan-fried foie gras, and monkfish with saffron sauce show off his imagination and technical skills.
