Hi Everyone -
My wife and I and our 14-year old twin boys will be in Berlin for 3-4 days in February. I would really appreciate some advice on breakfast places near our hotel and a good choice for an early dinner before a Berliner Philharmoniker concert at the Philharmonie.
Our hotel is in Mitte very close to the Gendarmenmarkt so ideally the breakfast places would be near that.
For the pre-concert dinner, I was actually thinking of Borchardt since it is also close to our hotel and I assume they serve all day so we could eat early and then walk or catch a taxi to the Philharmonie (concert starts at 8 p.m.). But I'm open to any other suggestions. My kids are pretty adventurous and we've taken them to a wide variety of places over the years so pretty much anything is fair game.
Just for background, some places we are considering for dinner for the other nights we are there are Weinbar-Rutz, Henne, Trattoria Paparazzi, Lutter & Wenger.and Altes Europa. I am assuming that these may not be good choices for a pre-concert dinner because they are either too far away or places where dinner would likely take too long.
Thanks very much for your help!
