In the middle of the hustle and bustle of Eberswalder Straße, we are seated in a cozy room. We are visiting AV Restaurant, where we are looking forward to two things: good food and tasty natural wine to go with it. The interior is kept very minimalistic, but with attention to detail - and so is the menu. 

We have the choice between the regular and the vegan menu, which takes away head-scratching decisions. So we can look forward to dinner without any brooding. 

For our first course, we are served "BBQ Pumpkin." A pumpkin-pumpkin combination that consists of fermented as well as grilled pumpkin. Flavor-wise, this is where winter is ushered in. Smoky aroma also meets savory sweetness and a fresh but strong red natural wine: "Note die Rosso" by Alessandro Viola, which complements the food with its easy drinking flow.

This combination of flavors gives me a familiar festive get-together feeling, where I sit back serenely and find myself perfectly at ease in this cute establishment.

Between courses, we are served bread, freshly baked on the premises, accompanied by two small bowls: Hazelnut butter and butter with black garlic. So simple. Somehow, however, such little things always manage to completely convince me of a restaurant - this bread-butter symbiosis achieves that with flying colors. Really a full taste pleasure!

After this flight of fancy, we now await the main course and hope that this high lasts. And it does. We have wild boar on a quince puree with kale, crunchy hazelnut crumbs and croutons. Every bite melts in your mouth. The meat is so tender, juicy and delicate, it's incredible. Add a pinch of quince puree, a bit of kale and you have the perfect fork. Delicious!

We still have some room in our stomachs and are happy about it, because we fill that space with dessert. On our plate we find a crispy fluffy "donut", Germans would call it Berliner or Krapfen, with a bay leaf ice cream and sour cherries. A classic combination but so finely crafted that even the dessert is a highlight of the evening. The crowning glory for this feast, in a lovely and intimate setting. 

AV Restaurant has given us a wonderful glimpse into their intimate culinary world. We put on our winter jackets and say goodbye. But with the certainty to visit this familiar, but also high quality restaurant again soon.
