Finally, north-siders won’t have to trek to Schöneberg for a taste of Gabrielle Jones’ excellent (and sometimes unconventional) small-batch ice cream – which is arguably the best in town. Just in time for summer, there’s now a second location right alongside Mauerpark, complete with homemade cones.

  • Jones, Eberswalder Str. 32, Prenzlauer Berg, details.

Parker Bowles

This Covid-era mini food hall concept has been revived near its old Moritzplatz pop-up location, with five excellent fast-ish casual dining options mostly from established names like Cocolo Ramen and Standard Pizza, plus newcomer Pacifico, which offers intriguing Korean-Californian fusion.

  • Parker Bowles, Prinzenstr. 89, Kreuzberg, details.

SAHOI Sushi Club

This chic spot with a slight Blade Runner vibe is a hot new spot (and a hotspot) for a mix of classic and creative sushi alongside a few saucy grilled items and izakaya-style bites like octopus tempura.

  • SAHOI Sushi Club, Linienstr. 134, Mitte, details.

Ei-12437-B

The historic Eierhäuschen restaurant has been reborn (albeit with a slightly awkward name), offering well-crafted takes on German classics from bratwurst (including a vegan option) to smoked fish. It’s been open since winter, but warmer weather and a beer garden mean that now’s the time to take advantage of this woodsy Spree-side location.

  • Ei-12437-B, Kiehnwerderallee 2, Plänterwald, details.
