Like all food writers, I enjoy the freedom to choose what I review. After all, Berlin has thousands of potential eating places so it has to be my choice – good or bad. This is not typically my style of dining. I tend to be a grab-and-go kind of guy. But it's nice to sit down, relax, and have someone else do all the work! So, with a friend in town, I went to a grown-up restaurant with wine and napkins and everything. It was The Winery, a place I pass every day on the Berlin Secret Food tour. I have purchased wine there many times, but now it was time for serious eating. Despite the English-sounding name, this is Italian. And it's wonderful value. It features a very cool vibe, wine barrels, candles and a waiter who actually IS the owner of the place. We got good wine advice and settled on a bottle for €12. It was a seriously delicious Southern Italian wine at a good value. I chose the Antipasta platter (€7) to start with while my friend Danny went for a very large mozzarella and tomato platter with fresh basil and oil.
