Sage Restaurant, Berlin, Germany

Concierge.com's insider take:
Sage is one of Berlin's latest restaurants specializing in traditional German dishes gussied up with high-end ingredients. Chef Sebastian Leifer serves meltingly tender beef shoulder that is braised, roasted, and paired with hazelnut mashed potatoes, while sea scallops are served atop a crunchy, almost raw green asparagus salad with salmon caviar. The classic menu features Wiener schnitzel and steak tartare, but the surprise lineup is the one to go for: three courses offering a twist on whatever's on the regular menu (that beef shoulder may be replaced with wild boar, for instance). Opened at the end of 2009, the long, narrow main dining area is housed in a repurposed silk factory featuring vaulted ceilings and brick walls left lovingly unrestored. Like many Berlin restaurants, Sage is not content to merely serve food. Set right on the Spree, the spot also functions as a riverfront beach club, complete with a sand bank, beach chairs, and umbrellas. —Ralph Martin
