Another visit to @ernst.berlin
I have a lot of time for @dylan1watson and the team at Ernst with their intense focus on what is the very best, in-season product at that moment. Finding it through actually visiting the forests, fields and farmers themselves maybe the morning before your meal. Seeing the potential in a humble ingredient like a simple salad leaf that is tentatively pushing it’s way out of the Earth, and pouncing on that product and transforming it into something wondrous to eat, without the aid of luxurious ingredients like truffles, caviar and uni. Seeing the potential in the very last raspberries of the season, the ones that even the farmer refuses to waste his time picking so they just pick’em themselves.
Taking just simple plates of food where using superb knowledge and technique, that one salad leaf, mushroom, piece of fish or cut of meat is able to shine brightly.
With the menu evolving and changing day after day and even during services on the fly, it’s great to know that you could visit Ernst one week later and most likely get 40 dishes all of which are different from your previous visit. According to Dylan and the team, the number of dishes that are in their repertoire since opening relatively recently is now in the thousands. You really get a sense of energy and fun when seated in front of this team. They are all extremely focused and clearly love what they are doing and this transfers on to the plate. Don’t be fooled by the simple presentations either, there is extraordinary depth of flavour in these dishes, a true skill. .
