For anyone dining in Berlin, Christian Lohse at Fischers Fritz is one of the most happening names on Berlin’s restaurant scene at the moment, and with good reason. Having worked in such renowned establishments as Marc Meneau’s (three stars) L´Espérance restaurant in France and the Dorchester in London (where he was also the personal chef to the Sultan of Brunei), Lohse has now brought his talents to West Berlin. The only two Michelin-starred restaurant in Berlin, his current venue is fabulously opulent with a white marble fireplace, crystal chandeliers and a gilt-edged ceiling. Sculptures and paintings abound, and the floor-to-ceiling windows give wonderful views of the historic Gendarmenmarkt. The menu is the real show-stealer though. It leans towards fish and seafood, but pedestrian descriptions could never do the food here justice. Imagination and passion are everywhere, making Fischers Fritz one of those rare places where you know you’re in good hands and offer yourself up to the experience of others. Business lunches and private dining are also available.
