Guide: Dine out on a Monday Night

Sadly, it can be hard to dine out on a Monday night in Berlin. I know that because I’ve tried several times and found many of my favorites to be closed.Of course, there are loads of imbiss-y places that are there for us, but it’s certainly harder to find a nice place to sit down and enjoy table-service. Which is why I made this nifty little guide, researching which restaurants that I liked were actually open. It’s not that many! Here to help:

French in Berlin: Les Valseuses

Entering Les Valseuses in Prenzlauer Berg is like entering the house of old friends: I am greeted with enthusiasm by the owners Olivier and Julien, and I am instantly asking myself why I haven’t been here for a year.
I’ve been a regular guest at their first restaurant, Themroc on Torstraße, back when they opened in 2009; and when they left it to start their own Les Valseuses in 2012, I was excited and followed them, documenting the action in their kitchen. However, I haven’t been a lot in the past months, and I really don’t know why…* Because Les Valseuses is a lovely place, with great food, very good wine, and, even more important and surprisingly still not a given in Berlin, two incredibly warm hosts that make every visit feel special.
