There are a lot of ways to impress someone. Personal betterment usually wins with your parents and a surprise vacation goes a long way with the kids, but if you’re in Berlin, one of the best ways to impress another adult is by taking them to Cell. The menu is full of high-end ingredients in dishes that have included monkfish topped with caviar in a beurre blanc sauce and foie gras with masala and apricot, and there’s a 400-bottle wine list with both German and French options. The space is covered in art and full of chairs and dishware that we wish we could stuff in our suitcase. If you’re looking to splurge (or if you’re the late Lagerfeld’s millionaire cat), then don’t skip Cell. Your wallet will not thank you later, but your stomach will.
