Of all the club restaurants, Cookies is the true pioneer. The fifth location of the famous Mitte club might be listed in guides, but there is no way to suspect its existence walking down this particularly un-trendy block of Friedrichstraße. To find it, enter the alley between the Komische Oper and the Westin Grand Hotel on Behrenstraße, make your way through the bowels of the four-star hotel, pass the garbage bins and a giant baroque chandelier (an odd feature in a loading bay), then ring the bell at a metal door and enter a darkened room that smells of last night’s booze. Then it’s through a corridor, up some stairs: welcome to Berlin’s temple of nouvelle veggie cuisine.
Behrenstraße 55, 10117 Berlin
Tue-Sat from 19:00
Welcome to Berlin’s temple of nouvelle veggie cuisine. Cookies Cream can really throw out some elegant veggies, faithfully fulfilling the owner’s mission of showing that high cuisine can be done without dead animals.
