MOGG is a jewish-inspired restaurant hidden inside a Bauhaus style former Jewish girls’ School in the Gallery District. The entrance is not clearly marked so make sure to push the very heavy building front door (always shut) and once you climb a set of steps you’ll find the restaurant entrance on the right. Whether you’re in the mood for breakfast or a full meal, this is a great option for getting in the mood of exploring this area of town. Make sure you arrive earlier (before noon) or can patiently wait to be seated, as it can get pretty busy, especially during the weekend.
The menu is not extensive but caters to a variety of tastes. We always go back for their Pastrami or Reuben sandwich, a meat-lover sandwich made of sauerkraut, spicy mayo, tender piles of pastrami and topped with a crunchy toasted bread sprinkled with caraway seeds – we love it! They do offer other great options, though.
The ambiance is cool and the decor is modern with cool vintage tables and chairs. We particularly like the cool lighting. The crowd is usually eclectic during the weekend but can be dominated by surrounding PR and design folk during the week.
Famous for its Pastrami and Reuben sandwiches, this restaurant offers more than meets the eye. Make sure to explore the building and it’s art galleries! It makes for quite an experience if you’re into architecture and art (we are).
Mogg & Melzer makes appearances at some of the Berlin Street Food events. And they do keep the quality up!
