If you're looking for a one-of-a-kind dining experience, head to the rather barren stretch of land between Hauptbahnhof and the government quarter, where a single half-timbered house stands, now dwarfed by a government complex going up around it: The restaurant Paris-Moskau was built more than 100 years ago as a pub and guesthouse along the Paris-Moscow railway. Today, it serves dishes so intricately prepared they look like works of art, with refreshing flavor combinations
such as smoked eel with pork belly ray, or guinea hen with beetroots and dates. In addition to the à la carte menu, there are a variety of set menus in the evening menu—you can choose four, five, six, or eight courses. The well-edited wine list and attentive service help make this restaurant a standout.
