As we approach Selig, it’s already clear that something very casual has found its way in. A wonderfully arranged conservatory with metre-long oak tables, a geometric light installation, plenty of green, and innummerous harmonious details that make Selig so comfortable, we don’t want to leave at the end!

Christian Birkelbach opened Selig in May of this year. As equal parts cafe, restaurant, and event location. The terrace, with its 160 seats, attracted a lot of attention this summer. „It was unbelievable,“ Birkelbach says, „if it wasn’t raining at that moment, there wasn’t an empty seat.“

He moved from Cologne to the Spree ten years ago, having worked in gastronomy since he was fifteen years old. As waiter, bartender, and manager. Most recently, he held the sous-chef post at Halleschen Haus for two years. He seems to have learned his trade there because the food served at Selig is simply heavenly.

There is a rotating daily menu full of promising delicacies as well as a set menu.We go for the recommended pork cheeks with celeriac creme and jus as well as the fried brussel sprouts with popped wild rice, roasted almonds, and an egg. – Both dishes are some of the best we’ve ever been served for lunch. We’re completely blown away!

My companion was already hooked when we arrived and now adamantly wants to find out if you can book Selig for parties. „Definitely!“ the extremely charming young gastronomer exclaims. „We’ve already celebrated everything from baptisms to huge parties.“ Christmas parties should have already been booked, but there are still a few free slots left.

Birkelbach is planning an outdoor bar for next year and can hardly wait for everyone to enjoy the new space together. Just as at weekends, when there’s hardly a free seat to be found for breakfast in the cosy rooms. No wonder, as the incredible cakes are worth the trip to Herrfuthplatz alone. – Simply an amazing new spot!
