Grill Royal, Berlin

Concierge.com's insider take:
This luxe steakhouse in the trendy Mitte neighborhood, has none of the smoky patina and careworn charm of West Berlin restaurants, or the hyper-modern, chilly air of Berlin's gourmet establishments, but seems to have been created by three Berlin nightlife and art-world impresarios to give Berlin's casually elegant set somewhere to go. The look is decidedly un-Berlin: Rather than the typical cavernous space, it's a low-ceilinged room with plush dining chairs. The only design elements are red lamps and mirrored pillars, as well as a view of the Spree River. The food is not just an excuse to watch the beautiful people, however: Argentinean and French steaks are the stars, available in portions from six ounces and up; other meat specialties include organic pork roast and herbed veal chop. Sides, mainly varieties of fried or mashed potatoes, are elegantly prepared but are tiny by German standards; a full range of salads and oysters fill in the rest of the mix. Stick around: A raucous atmosphere sets in as the night wears on, with champagne corks flying—a taste of the decadent Berlin of what now seems like ancient history.
