From Montreal, Quebec, The Luyas formed in 2006. ()

Booze Tour
2017

Last Monday night a new generation of Michelbergers learned of the wonders of the Preussische Spirituosen Manufaktur. Tucked away in an unassuming building in Wedding, this magical place is where our Michelberger Booze comes from. A few years ago we came across a couple of recipes in the back of a dusty old book. Together with Gerald and The Professor, we took those recipes and spent the better part of ()

New Dinner
Dishes

The dinner menu has been updated to reflect the beautiful spring produce we’re getting in. See the full card here.  We’re pretty excited about the burrata with orange puree, wild herbs and sweet, crunchy new season peas. The burrata comes from Bobalis, a buffalo farm in Brandenburg. Here are some photos from when we visited this incredible farm a little while ago.  And of course it wouldn’t be a spring menu without asparagus. We’re ()

We’re very much looking forward to Monday 3rd April when yMusic will be playing in the lobby. yMusic are a group of six New York City instrumentalists who NPR described as helping to shape the future of classical music. Exploring the intersection between classical and popular music, their unique configuration (string trio, flute, clarinet, and trumpet) has attracted the attention of collaborators such as Ben Folds, Bon Iver, José González and The Staves.

Time to
Chai

Clemence from the bar has come up with a delightfully spicy chai recipe for these chilly days. She was never a fan of the beverage herself, but on her travels in India was persuaded by a persistent waiter to give it a try. This particular brew was peppery, fragrant and bursting with spices and her opinion was changed. Clemence has created a Michelberger version of the beverage, made by crushing ()

Beetroot + Barley_740

Dinner Menu
Update

We’ve got some wonderful mid season additions appearing in the restaurant this week. See the full dinner menu here. You wouldn’t know it, but we’re actually at the very beginning of spring! The gradually longer days mean more light and we’re slowly starting to see the green stuff coming back. We’ve got Roberto’s baby leeks grilled and served with kale, capers and a smoky leek ash, and the wild herbs are starting to sprout again.
