Borchardt Restaurant, Berlin's VIP eatery

Borchardt Restaurant, Berlin's VIP eatery

Like George Clooney, Leonardo DiCaprio, Madonna and Barack Obama before you, play the celeb in front of your Wiener Schnitzel.

Open since 1992 in the new city centre, this trendy brasserie attracts a host of celebrities of all kinds, plus their counterparts in politics, media, and show business. The golden columns, red velvet curtains, statues, mosaics, and stucco ceilings give a quaintly out-dated atmosphere to this ultra-trendy address. A true Berlin institution, Borchardt Restaurant is especially famous for its Wiener Schnitzel: served with warm potato salad, it is considered the best in town. The schnitzel always comes with delicious side dishes like grilled artichokes with red peppers, beet salad with horseradish, creamy mashed celery, or cabbage with thyme. In the daytime, take advantage of the inner courtyard's terrace, weather permitting, of course.
