This unassuming restaurant in Maybachufer draws patrons in with its French- and Algerian-inspired menu, serving such dishes as roast duck and fish platters. The menu changes daily and can be found haphazardly written on a chalkboard hanging in the restaurant. Café Jacques boasts an impressive wine list for a establishment of its size, making pairing for any dish easy. The restaurant sits along the Landwehr Canal, and its light blue façade conceals an intimate, candlelit dining room that has made it a popular destination for romantic meals.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
