Berlin’s trendy dining scene — Berlin ranked as one of the most hipster cities for food by The Daily Meal — just became that much trendier with the opening of Grace Restaurant at Hotel Zoo Berlin, home to popular watering hole Grace Bar.
The 115-seat restaurant is an incredibly large, open space with artistic touches thoughtfully implemented into its sleek design. Inside, diners will find white-painted brick walls, Champagne-hued wood paneling, an open fireplace, tables draped with white tablecloths and flanked by leather armchairs, antique birdcages that have been re-purposed as chandeliers, and industrial floor-to-ceiling windows that allow for plenty of ambient lighting.
The menu at the Grace Restaurant marries Asian and Italian influences with inspirations from modern-day Germany. On the menu are dishes including tomato Yum Yum soup and tiger prawns topped with a pesto of Kaffir lime leaves and coconut cream; pork belly roasted in sweet hoisin sauce and served with an edamame ragout; and fresh oysters, served with Sicilian herb butter and gratinéed with aged Pecorino cheese.
