For the 'Jochen's restaurant tip of the week' feature on Jochen Trus' morning show on 105.5 SPREERADIO, Heinz Horrmann reviews Berlin restaurants every Friday.
Heinz Horrmann, the hotel and restaurant critic, at home in the world's most highly ranked and reputable Michelin-starred hotels, would like to say…
...welcome to the revitalised, lovingly modernised Hotel Palace Berlin, which has been rejuvenated in every way. You can look forward to the very best culinary delights and an enjoyable meal in the 'first floor' restaurant, rated by all the latest gastronomical guides as one of the best in Germany. Something which should make the chef de cuisine, Matthias Diether, and the general manager, Michael Frenzel, and their teams feel very proud. Here, too, the atmosphere has a new, designer look which nonetheless shows respect for the hotel's tradition, which is still valued and maintained. But as you know, tradition can be modern; the two aspects are not mutually exclusive. Thus the lobby too has a new, cosy look combining elegance and comfort, modern stylishness and functionality. It was all great before, for its time, but just as kitchen designs constantly change across the decades, guests' wishes change too, and that is simply the key factor at the Hotel Palace Berlin. In his textbook, the great César Ritz spelled out the credo which the Hotel Palace Berlin has adopted: the customer is sacred to the host and should be given everything he wants. Come to Berlin and look forward to staying at the Palace. The Palace is the address for you – more than ever.
The 'first floor' team won 4 out of 5 Horri points for their excellent overall achievement.
