I'll be in Hamburg for 6 days in July and am researching where to eat. I checked out the Hamburg threads and will look into the places mentioned on this thread http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/661056 especially, (and Nil does look great!) however I'm hoping for some new recs as well.
I'll be staying near the St Michaeliskirche. I've lived in Hamburg for a year, but that was 20 years ago (now I feel old..) so I doubt I will recognize much! I'm willing to trek around the city for good food, but would especially welcome recommendations for bars, coffeeplaces, restaurants, and foodstores (I'm staying in a place with a kitchen) in the area. Thanks!
