You know by now that we LOVE an atmospheric Berliner courtyard. And as much as we love Heckmannhöfe in Mitte, we always wondered why it did not offer better entertainment and food options. Well…that has just changed with the arrival of Night Kitchen Berlin, a new “eat and hang” hot spot.
Located deep in the courtyards, Night Kitchen occupies a most charming renovated 19th century brick building (with its own special backyard). The space has a functional yet cozy design and the bar area is quite inviting. The location itself should be enough to lure you in. The food and drinks coupled with the casual and fun atmosphere have the potential to turn us into regular customers. Already want to go back! We simply love places that not only deliver good food, but also provide the perfect environment for having an awesome time with friends. Chill, non pretencious and welcoming.
The food concept delivers exciting modern Mediterranean dishes. All plates are made for sharing and portions are adequate. We were particularly excited about the octopus a la plancha, the tomato carpaccio and the fennel trio salad. But do not get too attached. We are sure the menu will change frequently. Ask the friendly staff (great service, by the way!) for suggestions on what to order.
The cocktail menu is inventive without going too crazy. Familiar concepts with a fun twist. Perfectly conceived for an ejoyable (long) night out. Try the reliable “Negron” (Mezcal Negroni) or the surprising “Yasso Lassi” (Ouzo, Vanilla Ayran Yogurt and Honey).
Night Kitchen Berlin is backed up by two outstanding restauranteurs. Gilad Hiemann, who created and successfully implemented a similar concept in Tel-Aviv. And Shaul Margulies, the prolific mastermind behind Zenkichi and House of Small Wonder.
To get to Night Kitchen Berlin, take either the S-Bahn to Oranienburger Strasse Station or the U-Bahn (U6) to Oranienburger Tor. Walk about 3-5 minutes and you are there. The courtyards (Heckmann Höfe) are located right by the stunning golden-domed Neue Synagoge, one of Berlin’s prettiest sights.
We have a feeling Night Kitchen Berlin is going to be one of our favorite Berlin Restaurants in hidden courtyards!
