Seeking guidance for early summer good eats, food markets and restaurants, for Warsaw, Gdansk & Berlin (anyone eaten at Parker Bowles?)

I'm going to be spending 3 days+ in the above-named cities in the middle of June and hoping someone can help with market and restaurant tips.

For Gdansk, I am particularly interested in knowing where to find smoked fish at the market vacuum packed for travel if possible, and other take-home treats, including specialty foods from specialty shops. I would also like to know if Pod Lososiem serves good food. Plus any tips anyone wants to share.

For Warsaw, I need a good food market so I can assemble a picnic. I've only begun to do research for restaurants and specialty food shops, so I'll hold off with questions about those, but of course welcome any suggestions.

For Berlin: Does anyone have experience of dinner at Parker Bowles? I found a years-old Chowhound recommendation for Max & Moritz. Any updates? I'll generally be in or near that neighborhood (Oranienplatz), and also near Gendarmenmarkt, so any tips for places walkable would be appreciated.

I have been to Berlin once (Poland not at all) and have only a slim grip on the layout of Berlin and its transportation network. Last visit, I alas did not locate many enjoyable meals, so would greatly appreciate some guidance. We'll be too busy to fling ourselves hither and yon for "best" and can't do elaborate tasting menus. Not interested so much in regional specialities for Germany as eaating fresh summer-season dishes in a pleasant, relaxed setting. I can decipher a German menu. We eat all cuisines, but usually avoid Italian and American while traveling.

Thanks for any help you can offer.
