Borchardt, Berlin

47 Französische Strasse
Germany 10117
Tel: 49 30 2038 7110's insider take:

Though the service can be a little snippy—the waiters are used to dealing with ambassadors, presidents, and prime ministers, you see—it's worth ignoring for the pleasure of a good meal in one of the favorite haunts of Berlin's power brokers. The current restaurant is actually a re-creation of the original, which was next door at No. 48 and destroyed during World War ll. Happily, the reconstruction was done with an eye to authenticity; you'd barely know this place wasn't bona-fide 19th-century. Restaurateurs Roland Mary and Marina Richter run the place like a well-oiled machine, and the kitchen sends out traditional German and French dishes of the highest standard. Start with some oysters—go for the ones from the German North Sea island of Sylt if they're available—and then try the featherlight Wiener Schnitzel (which comes with a delicious hot German potato salad), a steak, or maybe some perch in herb sauce. Since it's open late and the crowd is often glamorous, Borchardt is ideal for a post-theater supper.
