Crackers Berlin, a newly opened restaurant in the location of what was formerly known as Cookies, is serving a special New Years Eve menu for the night, featuring elegant and refined recipes that redefine fine dining. In contrast to its vegetarian predecessors Cookies Cream and Chipps, Crackers offers meat and fish on their menu. The brainchild of Berlin dining guru Heinz Gindullis, Crackers was established with the culinary philosophy of selecting high-quality simple ingredients, guided by what is currently available in the fields, to bring the best of everything to the table. The space itself is just as elegant and inviting as the items on the menu. With an open kitchen, a stunningly high ceiling, a staircase leading to a secret dining room that seats 40 and dark teal benches and chairs that surround wooden tables with bright yellow legs, this restaurant attracts the creative, modern professionals you’d expect. Be prepared to shell out a little extra for the special menu, some drinks to start your night as well as entertainment, and don’t forget to make reservations in advance!
