Scandi in the Mitte: Antiqued Interiors at Dottír in Berlin

September 26, 2016

Noticed recently: the soulful, deconstructed interiors of Dottír, a Nordic restaurant in the Mitte in Berlin. Dottír (it means “daughter in Icelandic) is inspired by the cuisine of Victoria Eliasdóttir who, after finishing culinary school in Iceland, worked at Chez Panisse in California and later ran the workshop kitchen of her brother, artist Olafur Eliasson. That was when restaurateurs Boris Radcun and Stefan Landwehr approached Eliasdóttir about opening a new restaurant in a vacant house on Mittelstrasse. The result is fresh Nordic cuisine served in a rustic, stucco-walled space, with just the right dose of Berlin-style rustic glamour.
