In spite of its well-hidden location, inside a former distillery in the inner courtyard of a Neukölln backstreet, Eins44 (or Kantine Neukölln as it’s also known) is a pretty badly kept secret. The place has been favourite among foodies since opening and now attracts a steady stream of Berliners looking for a serving of gastro delight with a side of industrial chic.

You can order à la carte or opt for a set three, four or five-course deal. Chef Sebastian Radtke whips up a short menu – just ten dishes total, changed monthly, including desserts – that takes modern German cuisine and adds French techniques and plenty of international flavours. Portion sizes are smallish, yet the four-course option should do for all but the most gluttonous.

Whereas culinary ambitions run high, everything else is easygoing. No uniforms, no tablecloths, and even the tableware is plain and unpretentious. Staff is attentive though, and the setting is sufficiently nice and with the required elbow space to accommodate a date or an informal business meal. Just note that the acoustics of tiled walls make for a very noisy environment on busy nights.

It’s a terrific place for a quality meal to start the night, and it doesn’t hurt that it draws in a generally attractive and trendy crowd. Neither does a reasonably priced wine selection. In warmer months the courtyard is converted into a terrace with full table service that’s great for lunch, too, though with a reduced daytime menu.
