Vadim Otto Ursus, the 27-year-old chef behind the newly opened restaurant Otto in Berlin, has an impressive resume that includes a stint at the Michelin-starred Maaemo in Oslo and Noma Mexico in Tulum. But what I find the most compelling about his background is that he grew up in an artists’ squat, surrounded by creatives and activists (the building still exists on the German capital’s now stylish Auguststrasse). Cooking was an adventure and about community, which explains why eating at Otto, his first restaurant—an intimate space with 16 seats and a tiny bar situated in the buzzy neighborhood of Prenzlauer Berg—feels like being at the best kind of Berlin house party. Otto already has a growing crowd of regulars, including Ursus’s mother, the conceptual artist Meggie Schneider, who often brings over jars of pickles and bouquets of wildflowers from the German countryside. The à la carte menu is concise and exceptional, especially the hand-caught barbecued smoky trout, served with a salad of foraged greens and herbs, and the dessert, raw-milk ice cream served with pickled elderberries and an oil made from the pits of plums.
