Raised in Tel Aviv, Gal Ben Moshe has been familiar with the flavours of the Levant since childhood. Inspired by an Islamic scholar friend of hers, 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 reconciliation of strong spice in contrast with harmonious tastes, and sometimes palatable flavours, is one thing that makes Prism unique in Berlin.
For Gal, reinventing Middle Eastern cuisine also means rediscovering ingredients that have been known for a long time but are sometimes forgotten – such as Armenian cucumber or Jameed, the Arabic cheese. It is worth noting that Prism got their first Michelin star this year (2020), within a few months of opening!
Prism Wine List
Sommelier Jacqueline Lorenz has personally selected every single wine on the 230 positions-big wine list. She is very inspiring in assisting in your search for the perfect wine pairings. No wine list in Berlin boasts so many wines from the Middle East (Israel, Lebanon, Syria, Turkey, including a trip to Morocco). You are in for a real treat there! Their selection of Bordeaux Blancs is also quite impressive.
