Working in Mitte, there’s certainly nothing to complain about when it comes to choosing a place to have lunch. Nevertheless, I am very sure you’ve not only once experienced one of those where-should-we-go situations… Hence, this list. Which is far from complete, naturally, but a list of my personal favorites for lunch. Nothing more, nothing less. And with a foursquare list.
To call this place a Kantine (canteen) is of course a total understatement, not only because it belongs to the David Chipperfield Architect’s office and is thus impeccably designed, but also because the offered dishes only revoke memories of bland canteen food while actually being delicious. After closing down their first location, the team opened a new restaurant called Das Lokal (a personal favorite of mine thanks to its beautiful atmosphere and down-to-earth local and seasonal food) a couple of years ago. Now the entirely new build Chipperfield Berlin offices are finished and so is the remise in its backyard, the new home of Kantine.
