Warehouse Dining in Berlin, Michelin Chef Included

October 9, 2013

La Soup Populaire recently opened its doors in a former brewery building in Berlin that’s possibly the most dramatically raw industrial space we’ve come across. With two Michelin-star chef (and owner) Tim Raue at the helm, the restaurant offers traditional German food (he refers to it as “people’s cuisine”) and a revolving display of contemporary art. The menu–which is limited to four appetizers and main courses and two desserts–is created in response to the art; shows take place in the lower level Studio Room, which is open for dining. The space is windowless but warmly lit and furnished simply to “direct the focus to the exhibited artworks,” says Raue, “and, of course, to that which is being served.”

La Soupe Populaire is open Thursdays through Sundays, from noon to midnight. To learn more, go to La Soupe Populaire.
