Respond to Review of CLOSED: Mio Matto
Review: This is a newly opened trendy restaurant just off Warschauer Brücke situated on top of the Veganz supermarket. The mastermind behind this "Italian" restaurant is Björn Moschinski, vegan "celebrity" cook and former chef of the Koops. It´s a stylish place with a nice view over the neighbourhood. Some of the design decisions are not quite up my street, but it´s a nice place and definitely compatible if you want to take your parents out to a vegan restaurant. There´s pizza and pasta, a very good selection of starters and a small number of main dishes and a good selection of wines. This is not your average vegan place, the food is geared towards a wallet with a few more Euros in it than the average vegan burger affecionado can afford. But then the food is of excellent quality. Very fresh and original, the service was excellent. I had a minestrone, and tagliatelle with mock soy meat marinated in coffee and herbs. It was very tasty, although for the above average price I missed the extra 10% that would make the dishes pure bliss. I am nitpicking here as the food is really very good, but it falls one inch short of excellent. Still, it is the kind of place you can take friends to in order to demonstrate how far vegan cooking has come.
