55 Behrenstra e Berlin 10117 Germany

Once a gritty area near the wall in East Berlin, Behrenstraße is located just off now fully gentrified Friedrichtraße along a side street and adjacent alleyway that leads to the unmarked entrance of Cookies Cream. Through a single door with lighted canopy, visitors ascend into the main eatery defined by exposed concrete beams that are actually located directly above the main Cookies disco that lurks blow. The space is dressier than expected, much like Cookies, with glamorous banquettes and white table clothes illuminated by abstract light fixtures that cast a fashionable German crowd in the perfect glow. 

The Food

A daily dinner menu offer a prix-fixes selection of three vegetarian courses starting with dishes like peanut and chili croquette with cauliflower salad or truffle-scented salad with Jerusalem artichokes. Mains are an impressive feat by a talented vegetarian chef who whips of farm-to-table dishes like Moroccan couscous with potato confit, lentil tarte with winter asparagus and Brussels sprout cannelloni with truffle cream sauce.

Last Word

Famed Cookies disco offers loft-eatery access through hard-to-find entrance on side street leading to glamorous gourmet space for a boho fashion generation.
