Where is your favorite place to eat dinner in Berlin, and what do you recommend there?
Berlin is an enigma to me. Each neighborhood has a specific footprint and I love to stroll there when I get the chance. Not eating meat, I hope to make the vegetarian restaurant Veg Sfizy and make a stop in a small family restaurant called Basim.
