A key member of Berlin's pantheon of Michelin-starred restaurant, Pauly Saal wows diners with a truly unique setting and the bold yet subtly complex cuisine of Arne Anker. The young chef has impressive credentials, most recently as sous-chef of The Jane in Antwerp, the culinary laboratory of triple-Michelin starred Sergio Herman. Here in Berlin, Anker quickly made his own mark by giving German food a youthful, almost playful touch while still staying true to the seasonal-regional credo. The setting in the former gymnasium of a Bauhaus-era Jewish girls' school is no less memorable than the food. The custom-designed Murano chandeliers and eye-catching art by Cosima von Bonin and Daniel Richter should provide plenty of conversation fodder. On a sunny summer day, lunch in the leafy cobblestone courtyard is a sweet treat.
- Best Restaurants: "Before your meal, take a spin around the art galleries and the Kennedy-Museum, a tribute to JFK & Co, housed on the building's upper floors."
- Recommended as Best Restaurants Because: This sleek charmer won over the Michelin testers with its sophisticated modern German cooking amid arty decor in a Bauhaus building.
