June 26th, 2013 – The second Hotel Indigo in Germany recently opened up with a premier new steakhouse for Berlin’s foodies, La Maison de L’entrecôte. The bronze beef establishment is gaining a reputation for amazing steak, paired with an affordable price and stylish digs – and the locals are filtering in to get a cut.
La maison de L’entrecôte serves only one dish: entrecôte (sirloin steak). Diners are allowed to chose between three different sizes along with the temperature of the steak, making this dining experience an appreciated break from novel sized menus of some surrounding establishments.
The eatery is divided into sections by curtains of bronze metal beads that manifest stunning reflections of yellow light throughout the space. Inside the beaded curtain section, the walls and ceiling are upholstered with a warm bronze fabric which form into the banquettes.
The use of authentic materials such as wood, stone, and marble create a luxurious and inviting ambiance in the main dining room. Here, rectangles with radial corners are repetitiously carved out of the taupe ceiling to house the glowing light fixtures that hang above the dining room tables.
Because of the restaurants main dish, the cow becomes an elegant mascot for the space. A life size white cow greets guests upon entrance, then again, when small white cows grace the tables as a centerpiece.
