LardButty in Berlin – Café am Neuen See

When the weather’s fine enough to eat outdoors, Café am Neuen See restaurant and biergarten in Berlin’s beautiful Grosser Tiergarten is the place to be.

In a tranquil lakeside location, the beer garden stays open until sunset, serving beer – on tap and bottled – along with tasty Bavarian and Italian specialities like freshly made pretzels, weisswurst (white sausage) and leberkäse (meat-loaf), sourdough bread and stone baked pizza. Admiring the lake-side view and listening to the tweeting birds while sipping a cold weiss beer is a mighty fine way to spend a leisurely afternoon.

The Café am Neuen See restaurant serves breakfast, and coffee and tea and cake throughout the day, as well as more extensive food options if you prefer something more substantial. But it really comes to life after dusk, once the biergarten closes and the restaurant’s outdoor area is lit up with fairy lights and candles.

Flammkuchen – gorgonzola, pear and almonds

 

K and I order wheat beers and two flammkuchen (Alsatian baked flatbread) to share – one with pepperoni sausage and mushroom (this one has a tomato base, like a stone baked pizza) and one with gorgonzola, pear and almonds (no tomato sauce base) which is just stunning and delicious.

 

The verdict: Gorgeous food in a gorgeous setting. What more could you ask for?
