Last week I had the pleasure to try out the French restaurant Le Faubourg (which means the suburb) that is in the not-so-far West of Berlin at Augsburger Straße inside the Sofitel Berlin. I must admit that I absolutely love French restaurants (sorry, Italy) so this was a special delight for me. There is something about the way the French chefs prepare meat that is just to die for.
As you can see the interior of the restaurant is stunning with these goregeous Bauhaus lamps and perfectly illuminated tables. The service was impeccable, as you would expect from a high class restaurant like this. And the food was just symphony for the taste buds. The interesting part here is the menu for the main courses that is split in half with traditional versions and modern versions of the same type of meat or fish facing each other. You have options with venison, beef, turbot, sea bass and vegetarian dishes with prices ranging from 18-38 EUR. We tried the dry-aged rump-steak (easily one of the best meat dishes I ever had in Berlin) and the turbot with chorizo (very delicious and unusual combination). As a wine I had the Miraval rosé from the Provence that I loved so much that I made a little research about it on the internet and found out it’s the wine from Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. What a funny discovery! So ultimately we did not only enjoy a spectacular dinner, we also were in very good company (in spirit). Enjoy our impressions after the jump.
