Iron Beauty On Gendarmenmarkt In Berlin

Kiss Your Honey On Gendarmenmarkt At Night

Don’t Hate Me For Hating Currywurst!

I hate currywurst.  There.  I said it.  Being so in love with Berlin as I am means that sentence borders on — no, it is — blasphemy.  The people here go nuts for the (pork?) stuff, and I really cannot understand this gastronomic mystery.  In fact, I’ve been told that Germans eat more than 70 […]

I had to amend this post because my talented filmmaker friend Luci Westphal, creator of the In A Berlin Minute web series has just released (Sept. 27, 2012) a new episode featuring Zionskirche, the subject of this post, along with several other beautiful important churches from the peaceful revolution: And now for the photo gallery […]

Bird Virgin No More (Best Burgers In Berlin!)

On February 9th I finally lost it…I’m a Bird virgin no more.  The Bird in Berlin (Prenzlauerberg) is renowned throughout the city for having seriously fierce burgers and with good – very very good – reason.  They are stupendous. I had the chance to visit the place with the awesome guys from a Berlin startup […]

VIP Berlin: Pret A Diner, what can I say?

Pret A Diner in Berlin:  Absolutely gorgeous, decadent, beyond all that is comprehensibly chic. The full story of our escapades that evening can be found in the story I wrote for überlin on their blog.  They couldn’t link all of my favorite photos taken by my amazing partner in crime, Xesus Margarinos, so I felt the need to add a few […]

Restaurant Tim Raue

Originally written on February 17, 2011 I committed a cardinal sin at Restaurant Tim Raue.  Buddha Raue forgive me, I asked for substitutions in the fixed menu. I am personally not fond of most fish.  But the smiling waitress was quite charming as she explained that my preferences would not taste good together.  I was so […]
