In November 2014, chef de cuisine Alexander Koppe surprised all of Berlin by winning a Michelin star for his restaurant a.choice in Lichtenberg. This weekend, after moving to the twelfth floor of the andel’s Hotel Berlin, the restaurant reopened under the new name SKYKITCHEN Restaurant/Bar flavored by a.choice. Highest star in eastern Berlin welcomed an excited crowd of more than 500 VIPs, including actors, food veterans and media experts from the Berlin restaurant scene.
“Fresh, uncomplicated and as creative as Berlin” – this is the philosophy behind the menu and the down-to-earth signature of the chef and his team. Here, on the border between Friedrichshain and Prenzlauer Berg, Michelin-starred chef Alexander Koppe and executive chef Eyck Zimmer are now serving up the new taste of Berlin every Tuesday through Saturday. The result: three exciting menus based on domestic products, reinterpreted in a modern way, topped with a global touch.
The new SKYKITCHEN uniquely combines all the contrasts of Berlin. Restaurant patrons can let their gaze wander over the vibrant district of Mitte, across a stage set with landmarks such as the famous television tower and city hall, all the way to – in the evening – brightly lit high-rise buildings. SKYKITCHEN, designed by the architectural firm Dreimeta, has a table seating capacity for 55 guests plus eight spaces at window bench seats. The SKYITCHEN, along with the adjoining sky.bar, is the only place in Berlin to offer panoramic views of the German capital from the east – as a new hotspot on Berlin’s culinary scene.
“The location is amazing, the view absolutely priceless! There’s no better way to experience the different sides of Berlin – all of it just a few minutes by car from Alexanderplatz square,” says General Manager Ralph Alsdorf. Together with the design hotel’s investors, he poured all of his passion into developing and realising this concept. The SKYKITCHEN is located – unique for a gourmet establishment – in the up-and-coming district of Lichtenberg, at Landsberger Allee 106.
