Berlin Food & Drinks


There’s a place in Berlin that can soothe your yearning for faraway lands: Panama, the restaurant.



In the book The Trip to Panama by Germany’s beloved children’s author Janosch, Little Tiger and Little Bear go on a trip to the land of their dreams – only to end up back home, where everything that once seemed old and commonplace is now wonderfully exotic and new. Just like Janosch, restaurateur Ludwig Cramer-Klett has created something new in familiar surroundings – the restaurant Panama at Potsdamer Straße in Berlin-Schöneberg.



Who’s the boss?
Ludwig Cramer-Klett. He also is the man behind the restaurant Katz Orange, which has been a perennial favourite of The New York Times since opening in 2012.

Who cooks?
Sophia Rudolph. The 31-year-old Berlin native grew up in France and has already worked at three Michelin-starred restaurants. Most recently she was sous-chef at the restaurant and wine bar Rutz.




Potsdamer Straße 91
10785 Berlin

What is there to eat?
German cuisine with regional ingredients and international influences. A good example: the butterfish ceviche with coconut and brussels sprouts (see photo top right).

What does the place look like inside?
The redbrick building mixes classic bentwood chairs with exotic plants and a touch of colonial style. The large photograph on the ground floor is by the artist Julius von Bismarck
