Lorenz Adlon Esszimmer - Fine Dining Berlin
If you want to have a proper dinner when in Berlin an obvious choice is the Lorenz Adlon Esszimmer in the history-laden Kempinski Adlon hotel directly next to the Brandenburg Gate. This establishment is lead by the two-Michelin-starred chef Hendrik Otto. Let’s see whether Kings and Emperors would be satisfied still today were they guests of Lorenz Adlon, like they did in his time.
A review of the Adlon hotel will follow.
1st Course - Halibut
2nd Course - Zucchini
3rd Course - Saddle of rabbit
4th Course - Pigeon
Intermezzo - Ice cream
5th Course - Dessert: Raspberries and puff pastry
And to finally top if all off: a very nice grappa Eligo dell’Ornellaia from Tuscany.
We chose a bottle of this Bordeaux for the evening: Les Fiefs de Lagrange, Saint-Julien, 2009 - good and affordable.
|Restaurant||Lorenz Adlon Esszimmer|
|Gault&Millau||18/20 / 3 Hats|
|Verdict||Well deserved two Michelin stars. All courses were fantastic, flawless service, good recommendations from the sommelier. The living room atmosphere makes you feel like a guest of the old Adlon. Unfortunately the Brandenburg Gate was not visible from our table - I recommend to ask for one of the tables by the window at reservation.|
