Since the Berlin Wall came down 25 years ago, the city's restaurant scene has progressed tremendously, and it now stands on the verge of a true culinary explosion. With its eclectic mix of immigrant and classic German food cultures at relatively low prices, Berlin is on course to become one of the most exciting food destinations in Europe.
(A brief note: One modern institution missing from this list is La Soupe Populaire, the German restaurant that serves the very best modern take on classic Berlin cuisine out of an abandoned brewery in Prenzlauer Berg. The restaurant is closed for renovation and is scheduled to reopen again in early 2017. )
