Coda Wine List
Germany’s first and only desserts restaurant, located in Berlin’s trendy Neukölln neighbourhood, offers a modern culinary adventure unlike anything you’ve ever experienced: A dessert menu of seven courses with perfectly coordinated pairings.
The team, led by pastry chef René Frank, relies on fresh, seasonal products of the highest quality. Artificial flavours, colours and additives are obvious taboos, and no refined sugar is used. Instead, the natural sweetness of vegetables and fruits play off a full spectrum of flavours: the saltiness of ingredients such as cheese and anchovies, the bitterness from plants and herbs, the acidity from citrus fruits or tamarinds, and umami from protein-containing foods such as legumes.
About the Coda Wine List
Each course finds its partner in a drink complementing its flavours. Everything is made by hand, including infusions, lactic acid drinks such as kombucha and kefir, and pralines made directly from cocoa beans, finishing off an experimental yet deeply harmonious and immersive journey. Dishes are not high in calories and are easy to digest, creating an overall feel-good experience.
CODA has a very unusual wine list, limited to sparkling, Mosel Rieslings, two Austrian wineries and Sake. Each winemaker is very well presented with great depth in vintages. The Sake selection is impressive and worth having a try.
To add to the excitement, Rene hired Pascal Kunert as Sommelier in October 2020 – Pascal is well known in the wine scene in Germany with extensive experience in Michelin Restaurants. We knew about the combi Chef-Somm, now watch out – new combi Patissier-Somm!
In 2019, CODA received a Michelin star, making history as the first desserts-only restaurant to be honoured in over 100 years of the guide. To make the matter even bigger, CODA got awarded with their second star in 2020.
