    Raised in Tel Aviv, Gal Ben Moshe has been familiar with the flavours of the Levant since childhood. Inspired by an Islamic scholar friend, Gal also explored the lost traditions of medieval cuisine in these regions. But Prism draws its inspiration not only from the Levant or from the extended Middle Eastern region, but also​ Central European and Scandinavian cuisine when it leads to meaningful culinary contexts. The mix of strong spices in contrast with harmonious tastes, is one thing that makes Prism unique in Berlin. For Gal, reinventing Middle Eastern cuisine also means rediscovering ingre...

    The hotel and restaurant PURS is the first public space the Belgian designer and architect Axel Vervoordt has designed as an overall project - and it is safe to say that he truly outdid himself. Each room has been individually designed and carries Vervoordt’s unconventional signature, with a stylistic and formal idiom that connects history to modernity. PURS stands for purity and authenticity. A good cuisine should be amazingly simple, with a connection to the region where it is based, and above all – delicious! At the PURS, you can expect craftsmanship, a kitchen that reveals its affection f...

    Zeltinger Hof is located in the middle of Zeltingen-Rachtig, close to the Mosel River and surrounded by vineyards. The area is known as a playground for wine lovers. The restaurant Zeltinger Hof is located in the hotel with the same name. The hotel has been welcoming guests since the 1970s; before then there was a butchery in the building. The kitchen offers country-style cuisine and seasonal dishes from the Mosel region with a modern twist.

    Address: Am Kaiserkai 56, Hamburg

    Located in the Hafen district, around the corner from the Elbphilharmonie, this wine restaurant has a great view over the harbour and a relaxed wine bar vibe. Kinfelts owners Maximilian Wilm (Best Sommelier Germany 2019) and Kirill Kinfelt (a local Michelin Star chef) wanted to create a fun, relaxed place to enjoy great wine. The food menu is “international casual fine dining” meaning you can get pasta, regional specialities and steaks. The menu changes often; however, the local favourites like truffle pasta keep a fixed spot on the otherwise very seasonal menu. The restaurant's design is fl...

    Address: Brandstwiete 46, Hamburg

    Heldenplatz is one of a kind, serving great wines and food until 00:00. This is a place where the cities sommeliers go after work to drink and eat until the morning comes. The philharmonic is nearby, so booking a table even at 23:00 can be a good idea, as the restaurant is always full after the shows. The interior is clean and welcoming without fuss. The food is amazing, and chef Markus Hampp, who also happens to be one of the partners, is extremely talented. Everything on the seasonal menu is delicious and changes a few times a month. The other two partners, André Jean-Marie Nini and Julia...

    Address: Eiskellerberg 1, Düsseldorf

    By the Glass List of the Year Germany 2021

    The Eiskeller wine bar is located near the Rhine River in the “Altstadt” old city of Düsseldorf. It is tucked into an old building a few blocks from the river that was once used as a cellar to store ice brought down the river. This is how it got the name Eiskeller. This is a cozy little stone cellar with wooden tables and lots of candles. It is a classic wine bar in the sense that it serves a large assortment of wines by the glass and bottle, and charcuterie or cheese to go with it. Most of the snacks offered are bought from local producers. They are all top quality and served in generous port...
