Paris-Moskau
Paris-Moskau

Thursday, August 11, 2011

For years, a quaint timbered building stood alone in the wasteland where East met West, one of the few structures to have survived the battle for the Reichstag in WWII. Today it enjoys a prime location, between the main train station and the new Ministry of the Interior building, and houses the gourmet restaurant Paris-Moskau.

Cocolo Ramen
Cocolo Ramen

Tuesday, August 9, 2011

Cocolo Ramen, a tiny, cozy Japanese restaurant, is completely addictive. Their delicious soups are a far cry from the 30-cent powder packages ubiquitous on college campuses. Rich, savory broths and chewy noodles are topped with artful arrangements of succulent pork belly, shrimp and pork dumplings, roast pork or smoked chicken. Or try the vegetarian miso option: they're all scrumptious, the best ramen in Berlin!

Hackbarth's

Thursday, August 4, 2011

Hackbarth has dusky gold walls set off by marine blue tiles, and the rounded bar is trimmed in bright brass. Perhaps this is why the patrons all seem so lovely, the mood so warm and relaxed? If you squint you could swear you were in an Edward Hopper painting.

Open air cinema
Open air cinema

Friday, June 3, 2011

One of the many joys of Berlin summer nights is the open air movie cinemas that dot the city, called Freiluftkinos. Freiluftkino Kreuzberg is a favorite among expats due to their original-version programming and smart selection of box-office hits and art-house fare. Settle back into comfy lawn chairs with a beer and a snuggly blanket, in a lovely courtyard in the former hospital-turned-artist-colony Bethanien.

Torstraße
Torstraße

Friday, May 20, 2011

Torstrasse is loud, it's wide, it's dirty - and lately it's morphed into one of the most exciting streets in Berlin. In contrast to the sterile name-brand shopping to its south and the cutesy cobblestone cafe-filled streets to the north, Torstrasse is hopping with small galleries, junk shops, little designer shops, über-hip bars (Trust Bar).
