Berlin, Germany

Poised in Berlin’s rough-around-the edges Wedding area, you’ve got to plan ahead to get a spot at 12-seater Ernst. The stainless-steel door gives little away. But ring the bell and you’ll find a counter encircling an open kitchen, promising front-row seats to the mesmerising culinary show du jour. A less-is-more ethos graces both the industrial space and Canadian chef Dylan Watson-Brawn’s 25-course menu. Pristine, ever-evolving plates with Japanese undertones are rendered from Berlin-based produce in a proclamation of gastronomic love. Grilled cucumber with jellied apple vinegar, charcoal-cooked red mullet and smoked goat’s cream with green fig are exemplary.
