The Berlin based indoor farming company, InFarm has just announced its plans to expand its operations to Pars. They have been operating out of Berlin for the last five years and have gained a cult following amongst some conscious chefs from the high end to the low. Just recently Tim Raue was featured in one of their promotional videos as a dish was made from some of the locally grown stock. It seems as though Paris was the next logical step for these urban farmers and they are already on the hunt for employees in the new location.
Sons Of Mana, the new Poke joint that is due to open two new outposts in the next few months has decided to link up with Cafe Kranzler/The Barn for a summer session this weekend. The deal is that SOM will take skip over from their Kantini location at the Bikini Berlin mall and serve up poke bowls to unsuspecting coffee connoisseurs. The other party that will take part in the event will be Belsazar Vermouth an artisanal vermouth. SOM has been making major growth overtures over the last few months, so one wonders if they are going to be building something more longterm with the Cafe Kranzler/The Barn location.
Our/Berlin, the Vodka distiller working out of Treptow has announced that they are going to be opening a distillery in Manhattan New York, and to celebrate the event they will be hosting and Our/New York party.

The two Michelin star joint, Restaurant Reinstoff, put out an official letter today stating their plans to not continue their lease come the new year. The reason? Time to move on. The owner plan to continue working and are looking for their next project, but it is unclear if they will open another Reinstoff, or if they will open a new restaurant all together. In the nicely presented letter they state that they never would have dreamed of achieving all the things they managed, but that the current restaurant is just not logistically capable of handling the level of cuisine they produce. Whether or not Reinstoff is actually closing, one Berlin food critic pointed out a worrying trend. Fischers Fritz, Alt Luxembourg, and Glass have all made similar moves in this past year, and asks, “Coincidence, or crisis” -Matthies Reinstoff will continue working full time until the new year and will offer a survey of all of their greatest hits from now until then.

BRLO, the popular Kreuzberg brewery and restaurant that has had a successful run as one of the leading Brewary/Restaurant setups in Germany is opening a outpost in a high end market. They are setting up a Chicken & Beer resto/stand in KaDeWe, amongst the name brand designers and gourmands. You can go directly from stroking some Gucci to laying some lip on rotisserie/fried chicken and a beer, eight different taps, with a KaDeWe special brew included. While the BRLO Brewhouse concept makes lot of use of the Veggie side of cuisine, BRLO Chicken & Beer will indeed be just as the title describes. Chicken, Beer, and well… French Fries. It’s going live starting next month.

There had long been speculation about Gastätte Am Ufer, the Austrian style joint that opened a little over a year and a half ago, about their closing down. Last month they shuttered the location and put up renovation signs, but the word on the street had been that they location had been on the market for a while. In the end it seems that Gastätte has moved on and a new restaurant, has opened in its place this week. Whether or not the new restaurant belongs to the same partners that originally opened Gastätte is unclear, but it seems unlikely as Eatler’s source claims it is a asian/sushi/Vietnamese joint by the name of Cocochu, still no info out on them yet. Mr. Eatler will keep you abreast.
