GORDON Restaurant & Records Serves Up Two Incredible Israeli Imports

GORDON-Restaurant-and-Records-Berlin-Loves-You-Fish-3

You’ll hear GORDON before you see it – the easy sounds of relaxed disco, chilled house or down-tempo techno. The music throws you off, because with the exposed brick and small tables, GORDON could be mistaken for a cosy-yet-refined bar – but serving alcohol and playing tunes is far from the primary concern here. Nestled … Read moreGORDON Restaurant & Records Serves Up Two Incredible Israeli Imports

Gazzo Pizza Proves You Don’t Have To Be Italian To Make Incredible Pizza

DSC_5610

Gazzo Pizza is a neon darkroom operatic exploration into sourdough pizza. Gazzo is serious about two things: sourdough and locally-sourced produce. While they’re not exactly the first artisanal pizza restaurant in the Kiez, they join the ranks of Zola, Masaniello and Monella in the crusade of producing pizza with the same zeal in which wineries … Read moreGazzo Pizza Proves You Don’t Have To Be Italian To Make Incredible Pizza

The Bird Barbecue Brings Authentic American Smoke to Berlin

IMG_2983

Everybody loves a good rub, and the guys down at The Bird Barbecue are no different. The Texas-inspired eatery on Oderburger Strasse shares the same name as its burger-slinging cousin up the road, but patties are the last thing you’ll find here. Sporting a menu espousing the Texan holy trinity (beef brisket, pulled pork and … Read moreThe Bird Barbecue Brings Authentic American Smoke to Berlin

Allan’s Breakfast Club & Wine Bar is a Mouthful

IMG_5112

Allan’s Breakfast Club & Wine Bar doesn’t draw the crowd you’d expect. “On Sundays, we have the families and kids for breakfast, the younger adults for brunch, and the kids who come straight from Berghain in the afternoon for Bloody Marys.” Allan, the proprietor and chief of Allan’s Breakfast Club & Wine Bar, tells me … Read moreAllan’s Breakfast Club & Wine Bar is a Mouthful

Lexodus Brings Storytelling Back to Hip-Hop

IMG_0189

I first saw Lexodus at Marie Antonette. Back then the entire act consisted of Alex Linton spitting bars and pouring whiskey into the mouths of any eager revellers brave enough to come close to the stage. Today, the concept of Lexodus has changed entirely. No longer a solo project, it’s now full band with skilled … Read moreLexodus Brings Storytelling Back to Hip-Hop

Melt Your Worries And Your Hunger Pains At Paradiso

Taco13

I didn’t expect Paradiso at all. When invitations were extended I thought we’d be visiting just another restaurant, the kind with space for 100 and scores of stressed-out waiters. Instead, we’re brought to the tiny shop front of a building on Oppelner Strasse, a barebones room that at first glance is easy to miss. This … Read moreMelt Your Worries And Your Hunger Pains At Paradiso

SuperSonico is Gourmet Italian Fast Food

IMG-3284

Like those strange chopper-style bicycles you see around Kotti sometimes, a big menu is an indication of insecurity. SuperSonico is anything but insecure. Located on Bernauer Strasse and just beyond Mauerpark, the restaurant operates on a strange liminality, catering to the bourgies of Prenzlauer Berg but also within the orbit of Wedding’s culinary explorers. The … Read moreSuperSonico is Gourmet Italian Fast Food

Nakhane’s “You Will Not Die” Lends Fashion To Trauma

Nakhane 26 crop

As a multidisciplinary artist, it’s hard to peg Nakhane to one artform. We met Nakhane for the first time last year when he and director John Trengrove brought their film The Wound, which Nakhane starred in and which was short-listed for an Oscar nomination, to Berlinale. Since then Nakhane has taken a break from acting … Read moreNakhane’s “You Will Not Die” Lends Fashion To Trauma
