  • The Monocle Guide to Good Business

    The Monocle Guide to Good Business

    After many years of consistently producing one of the more interesting monthly publications out there among many other things, it was a natural step for the magazine’s team to create ‘The Monocle Guide to Good Business’. As the guide is not a traditional business book, but rather gives advice on how to go from clever fledgling idea to success story and introduces people with inspiring stories; with the high quality of products Monocle puts out, they seem to have to perfect fit to share some valuable insights what works best. At this point Monocle delivers an unique global briefing on global affairs, business, culture and design. Alongside the magazine, Monocle has created a 24-hour radio station, a film-rich website, retail ventures around the globe, and cafés in Tokyo and London, with very likely more to come in the future.

    La Cremerie in Paris

    A friend of mine tipped me of and once we arrived at La Cremerie for lunch, I couldn't lose my smile. A very authentic little hide away in the middle of St Germain Paris. What is originally a little delicatessen store, is actually also a small restaurant. They sell a great selection of regional wines, cheese, pathe, oils, sauces and much more.

  • Sunday Brunch in Berlin

    Sunday Brunch in Berlin

    Berlin is very famous for their brunch culture on sunday. Throughout the city you have restaurants and cafe's that offer brunch buffets for a fixed price. I just love to chill on sundays and have a nice long brunch with my friends.

    Last week my loved one introduced me to a very special place; Pasternak, a Russian restaurant that offers a russian buffet on sunday. Stepping into Pasternak is stepping into russia in the fifties. Old wallpaper, beautiful vintage wooden furniture and blond Russian waitresses in classic waitress uniforms. The buffet is amazing. They offer a wide variety of Russian specialties.

  • The Best Pasta Ever

    The Best Pasta Ever

    Years ago, when I asked a friend of mine (a long-time Milan resident) for the best, most honest Italian meal in town, she made one of the best recommendations I've ever gotten.

    On the small and quiet Piazza Carlo Mirabello is a restaurant that takes you back in time, called Ristorante Il Verdi. Upon entering it, the traditional Italian design makes you feel like you've been transported to a real Italian diner in the 1960's. The best trained waiters, dressed to perfection, meet you at the door to seat you.

    The first thing that struck me was the hand written menu; it was not only hard to read, but many of the dishes where unfamiliar to me. To satisfy my curiosity, I decided to order many different dishes, as the pricing was more than reasonable. I had 4 different types of pasta. Well, I can tell you, it was the best pasta I ever had. The texture, the sauces… they were all unique combinations and one tasted even better than the other; unbelievable. A perfect glass of the house wine and I was in heaven!

    They also serve meat and fish -- perfectly cooked as well. No space for dessert, but I will be coming back… a lot! My number one in Italy!
