An institution in this now-gentrified East Berlin neighborhood of art galleries, parks, and smart boutiques, Gugelhof can attribute its fame to one fateful day in the year 2000, when President Bill Clinton asked his host, Gerhard Schröder, to take him to Prenzlauer Berg for dinner. After a frenzied hunt for a suitable place, Clinton came to Gugelholf, where, legend has it, he had the choucroute. The Alsatian restaurant is doing fine seven years later: Its decor perfectly evokes a central European bistro, with sconce lighting and finely carved stucco pillars. While the service is occasionally slow, the French/German cuisine is solid and often surprisingly sophisticated. Besides choucroute, menu standards include Backeoffe, an earthy herbal stew baked in an individual pot that is sealed with a crusty ring of bread, as well as flammkuchen, a flat pizza-like crust topped with sour cream, salmon, bacon, or vegetables. Fish and seasonal specialties appear on the daily menu as well. The wine list is expansive and thoughtful, with well-selected rieslings and a trove of old Bordeaux.
