One of the highlights during our Berlin trip was a seven-course meal at Vox. Located at the ground floor of Grand Hyatt Berlin, Vox is one of the top fine dining restaurants in the city. With its modern dining space, casual yet elegant atmosphere, Vox offers a sushi bar, international cuisine, and a fine dining experience.
Thanks to Grand Hyatt, we were able to celebrate a la honeymoon with a very special dinner!
Because love is in the air we were offered the Love Corner or ‘Ulrike Lauber’ for a more private, intimate setting.
As soon as we sat down, we were given warm bread along with small pots of crystalline salt and herb cream sauce. We were told that the menu for the evening was a very special one since we were celebrating. The build up was nerve wracking.
We started with cocktails freshly prepared and selected for us. Dexter got the Smokey Bologna, which was a take on the negroni; while I had a Cherry Hendrix, their version of mai tai. Both were refreshingly delicious! Little did they know how much we love cocktails!
We did not have to look at the menu to order since the whole dinner was already planned for us. To begin we had the roast beef with mustard, mashed potato, baked onions, and cucumber salad. It was the tiniest dish ever yet so rich and flavourful. Our favourite among the starters was the pond trout, potato, avocado, and escabeche. It was a delightful combination.
The main dish was suckling lamb, merguez, chickpea, and pointed bell pepper. It was so delicious and so creative. The meat was cooked to perfection without a doubt. We ended the evening with an inventive dessert of apricot, basil, pine nuts, and cream cheese.
Adjacent the restaurant is Vox Bar that serves premium cocktails and wide selection of whiskey.
Vox turned out to be everything we had hoped it to be. The whole experience made us feel like VIPs tucked away in our own corner, our Love Corner, while at the same time sampling dishes in one of Berlin’s best restaurants. It’s definitely the perfect spot for celebrating couples, proposals, and such special occasions.
