It's easy to walk right past this unassuming-looking little storefront bistro but that would mean missing out on a fantastic meal. This is not formal dining; it's a quick-in-quick-out hangout where you can watch veteran chefs Andreas Breuer and Stefan Kleinert give simple German dishes a refined and inspired workout. After helming various kitchens in Berlin, the two decided to leave the culinary rat race in 2010 and instead do what they love: serve great German food at reasonable prices. Aside from a daily changing lunch special, the blackboard menu features seasonally inspired dishes, including meatless fare and salads. Always on the menu are such perennial tummy-pleasers as Bouletten (meat patties) with fried potatoes and Wiener Schnitzel with homemade potato salad.
- German: "There are just a few tables and no reservations, so if you're here for lunch come early (preferably at noon when they open) or expect to wait. For drinks there's a handpicked selection of bottled craft beers and soft drinks made in Berlin."
- Best for German Because: This tiny bistro serves excellent innovative and classic German dishes, all freshly prepared in front of your eyes.
