Long time no speak…sorry about that. Our Terroir Berlin Chef’s Symposium was an amazing whirlwind which brought the Berlin restaurant community together in many ways, but in the process I forgot to do a lot – mainly sleeping and eating. On the flip side, I’ve got an absolute corker of a newsletter here for you – packed full of new openings, restaurant gossip and restaurant jobs. And I’m very happy to announce The BFS Food Tours are back up and running, now also available with food-guide extraordinaire, Liv Fleischhacker. Check out our newly announced tour dates and send all serious eaters our way for the very best food tours in town!
(Don’t forget, you can signup here to receive the Berlin Food Digest when it hits inboxes first every month. Those signed up receive a monthly Insiders Tip to where they should be eating out AND I include extra competitions for them. Join the gang!)
Newly opened at the start of the month, Good Bank grows its salads right next to your seat making it the world’s first in-house ‘farm to table’ restaurant. The result is a Wes Anderson-ish venue with some pretty trippy neon light displays, and the Caesar salad is as crispy as it gets.
This brand-new neighbourhood bar and cafe finds its home in a stunning location on Herrfurthplatz serving seasonal, organic meals alongside great coffees to Schillerkiez’s finest folk.
The words ‘vegan’ and ‘Vietnamese’ are not normally the hallmarks of my favourite restaurant in Berlin but I’m still curious about Ryong‘s new sister-restaurant on Hasenheide – their front garden looks like a a pretty sweet spot to enjoy a summery evening in…
The soon-to-be-or-maybe-one-day culinary destination that is Wedding (mark my words) just got one more reason to visit in the shape of Mirage’s cafe/bistro which offers breakfast classics such as Eggs Benedict alongside cocktails and wine tastings at the bar.
Full points from me if you manage to find Khwan’s new pop-up restaurant on the first attempt (it’s tricky), but head to the RAW complex on Revaler Str 99 and inside the old Craft & Smoke building you’ll find some of the best –and definitely rowdiest– Thai food in Berlin right now.
The beloved supplier of Berlin’s freshest, most Nordic-inspired seafood dishes will close its doors for good on July 22nd as the buidling falls into the hands of hotel developers. Get down there for the last good seafood supper you’re likely to have for a while.
There’s a new natural wine shop on Linienstraße, Mitte and it’s brought to you by the masterminds behind Neukölln’s JAJA wines. Drink naked or go home.

Rumour has it that Markthallen Neun’s artisanal meat magicians are opening their own restaurant…#excited

Head Chef, Thomas Kurt, is on the search for a location to start a new project in after the restaurant was bought by…you guessed it…luxury apartment developers. RIP.
Rumors say Kristof (Mulax, winner of ‘The Taste’) and his pop-up restaurant partner Martin Müller (Tim Raue, La Soupe Populaire) have found the venue and a partner to settle down in a real, physical restaurant later on this year.
