Berlin is full of trendy restaurants serving trendy food, but sometimes it’s the long-established and resolutely “old-fashioned” places that leave the most lasting impression. Take Ganymed—it’s been around since 1929, lived through war and Wall, and even in the GDR days, when dining out was rare. The brasserie-style food that it offers is hearty, wholesome and delicious. Try that old Berlin favorite, green pea soup, if you want something hot, filling and authentic. Most of what’s offered, however, is traditionally French. The fixed-price dinner might include lamb knuckles braised in Beaujolais and served on broad beans and minced potatoes, or whole grilled sea bream with fennel. The interior is cozy and charming, with checkered tablecloths and candlelight.
