PAULY SAAL

Berlin’s Auguststraße has a new place to eat and drink – the team behind the Grill Royal opened their new restaurant Pauly Saal in the Jüdische Mädchenschule. The ingredients-based cuisine will be prepared to the highest standards by starred chef Michael Höpfl. It’s about all things braised, sautéed, salted or marinated. Sausages will be made, vegetables pickled, breads baked in wood-fired ovens, pastries prepared onsite. In addition to stews served in cast iron pots, suckling pig from the rotisserie and traditional offal dishes will be on the menu. The former gymnasium of the school was remodeled and furnished according to the owners’ designs. Thus, all materials have been manufactured especially for this project, whether the ceramic tiles from Berlin, the extraordinary Murano chandeliers, or the chairs covered with dark green fabric.

SAÂDANE AFIF – THE FAIRYTALE
RECORDINGS
Schinkel Pavillon
29.10. – 11.12.2011

Art, in Saâdane Afif’s highly reflexive practice, becomes words, music and movement, metamorphosing from one art form into another with the help of talented collaborators. Inviting writers to respond to physical artworks, and musicians and actors to respond to their texts, Afif transposes the visual into other senses, projecting the imaginary expense of a piece through the interpretations of others. At Schinkel Pavillon his work completes a full circle, turning lyrics formed in response to previous pieces, by way of performance by Katja Schrade and porcelain by Nymphenburg, into sculpture, and in doing so sealing the process.

Located in the heart of downtown Lisbon, the 1960s building offers 19 apartments to rent for short or long term Lisbon visits. Close to Chiado, Bairro Alto and the Castle of São Jorge, the Lisbonaire is home to travellers with an appreciation for design, hosting them in individually designed studios by a Portuguese graphic, product or furniture designer rooted in the young and vibrant Lisbon design scene.

GRILL ROYAL

A place to meet friends and enjoy excellent food, there should be steak and fish on the menu, champagne and plenty of space. In the spring of 2007 Stephan Landwehr and Boris Radczun opened Grill Royal, which has been a hot spot in the gastronomic landscape of Berlin ever since.
