I'd heard people mention Bullerei a few times, in large part down to Tim Mälzer, the German celebrity chef behind it. It seems I'm not the only one because the place is packed night after night.
 
Bullerei is made up of two distinct sections, the first is the Deli, designed as a bistro, it primarily offers light lunches and quick bites.  The second is the main restaurant which is a little fancier with a larger menu, that is a (little more) diverse - we arrived around 8pm and the both sections were packed, so we headed to the bar for the short wait before being seated.
 
The restaurant started life as an old cattle hall in the Schanze meatpacking district and sticks to its roots, the industrial-interior, offers exposed brick walls with graffiti artwork and is heavy on the wood. The menu lacked a little  on choice, we had a selection of starters that were all tasty but nothing to really shout about, and for mains we went with the house recommendation to share a chateaubriand.  The beef was a little tough and it was also quite fatty, leaving us on the whole underwhelmed by the food. That said, the cocktails were good, the service couldn't be faulted and the place definitely has a good atmosphere. If  you are looking for a cosy romantic meal, you may find it a little loud. 
 
This is the sort of place I’d go to (occasionally) with a group of friends if the price tag was a notch lower. 
 
Why did we decide to list it? It didn't seem entirely fair to leave it out, we had an enjoyable night.
