Bar Food Friday:
Sake & Seafood

The 11th December sees the next round of Bar Food Friday. The idea is that we bring the restaurant to the bar for a night and serve up some killer dishes based on an ingredient theme and made with the very best produce available then paired with some great craft booze from the bar. Last time was Duck and Vodka and this time we’re doing Seafood and Sake. The kitchen will be making some tapas-style ()

December in
Michelberger

We have a full and festive Christmas season ahead of us here at the hotel! Our forest has grown this year and lost amid the branches you’ll find a wooden outdoor sauna hut glowing away every afternoon and evening through the month. The Glühwein will be flowing, the air will be biting and snowy; a truly Finnish sauna experience. Add a massage and you’re set!  Celebrate the season in our ()

Autumn
Shining

October is here and this week in the restaurant we’ve launched a new menu to reflect the season.  One of the many stars is the Maultaschen soup starter, Autumn on a plate. These handmade German-style ravioli are filled with a mixture of fresh, seasonal mushrooms from Brandenburg, as well as onions, juniper berries, marjoram, parsley and pepper. With the plate there’s a light, aromatic stock to be poured over it, made ()

Summer
Salad

One of our starters in the restaurant at the moment is a twist on a Caprese salad. We use buffalo mozzarella from our friends at Bobalis farm, and instead of tomato, we’re making the most of the delicious watermelons which are in season right now. The buffalo bresaola and dehydrated olive add a bit of saltiness, and the balsamic reduction and basil leaves call back to the classic Caprese salad.  

In Our
Restaurant

This is the roasted cauliflower dish from our current dinner menu. It’s served with cauliflower and cumin purée and big plump Medjool dates. These have been cured in oil, vinegar and shallots, making them very soft and very tasty. There’s a sprinkling of dukkah over the top to finish it off.

Visiting Lucas at
Quinta de Sant’ana

Lucas came to Berlin from Portugal 2 years ago. He grew up in there and lived all his life with his 6 brothers and parents on a Quinta with a little vineyard that his parents took over from the old caretaker in the early 90’s. Slowly they nurtured it and over the years they improved and mastered their wine-making… and it’s their wonderful wine we now enjoy in our restaurant! ()

Happy New
Year 2015

Thanks to everyone who came, gave and shared and made it such a memorable start to the new year!
