A la carte

Last nights dinner was a total bust but in the end, it all worked out.  It was really beautiful walking over to the first restaurant.  That was probably the highlight first time around. 

During the holiday season, most restaurants have a set menu.  It is easier since the staff is smaller than the norm. After a few nights without getting to make a decision, it gets annoying.

We had reservations at San Nicci.  The place was pretty much empty except for a few tables.  The dinner was fixed.  Heavy food, either 3, 4 or 5 courses.  Your choice of that only.  No other options.  We all looked at each other and left.  I think I would have rather had a sausage at the ice skating rink before sitting down for another heavy duty meal where they make the decisions for you.

We walked back to the hotel and regrouped.  Shiro i Shiro had tables open so we went over.  Sushi.  The restaurant was also pretty empty.  I think most people stay home on the 26th for dinner.  We had drinks earlier with a woman from Berlin and she said the city is not any less busy than normal…which btw is not that busy but the restaurants were empty last night.

Shiro i Shiro had really good sushi.  Very trendy and mostly white enamel.  A large communal table down the middle so you can watch the chefs prepare the food and then another small area where there are tables.  It was a nice break from the German food.  Who would have thought that you could get an excellent piece of hamachi in the middle of Berlin.

    Man, this is killing me, 12 days in Europe just completed, and all I can think of is ‘when can I go back?’.
