Mid-priced dining options in Berlin?

MC Slim JB | May 19, 2008 09:18 PM

Looking for suggestions, nothing Margaux-extravagant, preferably in the Mitte or nearby. €25-30/main isn't pushing my expense account too hard. Something along these lines:

* Turkish. I'm considering Hasir (the one on Oranienburger Strasse), Istanbul in C'burg, and Divan in Kreuzburg, which has the bonus attraction of live music.

* Creative German. I've unearthed no suggestions of my own here, but I'm looking for some bright young chef with ideas; traditional German fare seems pretty easy to find.

Quality/creativity is the top priority, atmosphere a plus. I'd also welcome places that aren't necessarily expensive, but have extraordinary food of their type, like maybe a kneipe that has wonderful food and great atmosphere and doesn't mind non-locals.

N.B.: I had a meal at Cantamaggio the Scheunenviertel that I thought was superb (fantastic pastas, especially). I liked the fact that the place didn't look like much inside or out but really delivered on the plate, quite a bit more refined technique than I anticipated. That worked out to about €50/head inclusive with wine, which I though was pretty fair, though I'd be happy to find something more modest.
