Place Settings #41: May 18, 2014


Eat: A big plate of sliced meats, cheeses, butter, and fruit from Café Anna Blume in Berlin’s Prenzlauer Berg. As much as I am a fan of an espresso and a pain au chocolat in the morning, I think German breakfasts are my favorite. They are basically the equivalent of grazing on a bunch of different things from a well-stocked refrigerator, which is my preferred way of eating.

Drink: A warm cup of coffee under an umbrella on a chilly, rainy, German morning.


Read: No books this week! My wonderful friend Winston is my host for the weekend, so naturally we chatted away over breakfast. Food was the foundation of my friendship with Winston; we discovered a mutual passion for tiramisu many years ago in New York. Since then we’ve both split time in New York and Europe and haven’t had a chance to see each other in years. The entire weekend has been full of eating (more on that later this week), and tonight we’re off to two different restaurants for dinner — there are both spicy Korean rice cakes and spätzle to be eaten.



Hope you are all having a great weekend and see you this week back in Paris!
