You might all know about the tiny french restaurant, which started the whole foodie-hype of Torstraße, Bandol sur Mer.

Last week, I was invited for a dinner at Richard, a fairly new restaurant on Köpenicker Straße, just off Eisenbahnstraße. This area is certainly not known for upscale restaurants and thus the choice of location might be astonishing.

Of course they kept the carved wooden ceiling and the beautiful big windows facing the street adding some contemporary art and fancy bubble chandeliers.
