Kater Schmaus

Michaelkirchstrasse 23 , 10179
Berlin , Germany

A gritty stairwell leads up to this hidden third floor restaurant in KaterHolzig—a graffiti-covered soap factory reinvented into a sprawling cultural center. Inside, there’s a state-of-the-art open kitchen filled with a staff that looks more like DJs than sous-chefs. The menu features mostly German-inspired dishes made with seasonal ingredients such as spinach–Alpine cheese dumplings with fresh mushrooms and a red beet salad. Desserts are especially good, even though they might sound like haikus, such as this offering: Black currants, Cigarette Fillo rolls, New York Cheesecake, Cucumber.
