Housed inside the Swissôtel Berlin, Restaurant 44 is a strikingly modern eatery. The upscale, contemporary dining room has dark wood floors, off-white chairs, modern art adorning the walls, and floor-to-ceiling windows. Chef Danijel Kresovic has crafted a menu of new German fare with a focus on local ingredients and seasonal preparations. Popular dishes include veal with pumpkin ravioli and crayfish with goat’s quark, a soft cheese. The wine list has a selection of reasonably priced bottles and wines by the glass, and the terrace is home to the restaurant’s own herb garden.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
