A Michelin Star recipient, VAU opened in the Mitte district in 1997. The restaurant, located near the Gendarmenmarkt, serves the traditional German and French cuisine of chef Kolja Kleeberg. Seafood and game dishes are menu highlights, and selections such as venison chop from Brandenburg with barley, savoy, and pickled rosehip showcase fresh ingredients. Housed inside the historic Gründerzeit building, which once hosted Rahel Varnhagen’s salon, the restaurant has an interior design created by Meinhard von Gerkan, the architect responsible for Berlin Tegel Airport, and the walls are lined with paintings by Cologne-based artist Oliver Jordan.
