BERLIN: Nightclubs are morphing into trendy restaurants, now also in Berlin and it worse visiting one of the latest , CRACKERS by Restaurateur Heinz Gindullis who is better known in the city under the name of Cookie. His former Club Cookies has now reopened as Crackers—an ultra slick restaurant that is set to be the place to be during fashion weeks, art weeks, and every day life.
After 20 years of calling the shots in numerous iterations of his eponymous bars and clubs, Heinz Gindullis finally took down the disco interior in the summer of 2014and replaced it with two giant golden-hued chandeliers, and on the former dance floor is a raised open-plan platform for dining. Designed by architects Laura Rave and Jörg Schumann, the venue is cool and chic yet still casual—with the potential to become a club at midnight thanks to the four-times-per-week DJ sets and mingle-worthy bar space. But first enjoy the fantastic food…
Acclaimed vegetarian chef Stephan Hentschel is creating things in the kitchen, which guests must walk through on arrival.
We eat zander ceviche with pomegranate and sweet potato chips for a deliciously fresh starter, that is followed by a succulent slab of pork and aromatic herbs. Vegeterians, or desert cravers, will not leave unsatisfied. Actually, combining the two, would be the avocado and chocolate truffle dessert—which is just devine. One of my favorite places in town at the moment as it combines most thinks I am looking for at night. Perfect food, good music, great mix of crowd and everything in a stunning architecture.
