- In the basement of the house where Bertolt Brecht spent his final years as East Germany's leading intellectual is a great little restaurant. It features Viennese recipes directly from the unpublished cookbook by Brecht's wife and collaborator, Helena Weigel. The interior is all dark wooden panels and theatrical lights, and in summer the restaurant expands into the charming garden upstairs. The food is typical Austrian fare, but of superior quality, and includes baked chicken, goulash and schnitzel. It has an excellent wine list, and the staff are among the most professional in Berlin. A real Berlin experience off the tourist trail.
