A dinner dish at The Kitchen


The Kitchen

A smart neighbourhood bistro set on a corner site with a heated outdoor terrace and mostly German wine list. Owner Fatih Ayoglu recommends ordering several starters as sharing plates, although the crispy octopus main with silky parsnip purée is not to be missed, and the burgers are said to be some of the best in the city.

Co-working and coffee at Velvet



Industrial-chic café Velvet is a treasure from morning coffee to after-work aperitivo. It shares the site with Beyond Studios, a boutique filled with chic Northern European labels pleasingly organised by colour, so you can have a browse before tucking into a vibrant menu of mostly plant-based dishes.
