Berlin Pastrami – From a Tragic History
Ridden with a tragic history, the owners of Mogg have turned this old Jewish Girl’s School, come Jewish Hospital, around completely. After years and years of abandonment after the war, they have created a new space that embraces both the past and present.
Built in 1927, designed by Alexander Beer, the building represents a pre-war, modernist Berlin. A strong emphasis on the functional over aesthetic notion, contrasts to the beautifully coloured art-deco tile interior of the communal areas. This building encompasses all that this city is and was, through the representation of the dark history of Nazi Germany, and the colourful, liberal Berlin we see today.

Berlin pastrami – It’s Really, That Good
Pete Wells, of The New York Times describe the signature dish as:
“The pastrami is quietly smoky, noticeably peppery, not too salty, fragrantly pink. sliced and layered on excellent, fresh, un-spongy rye modelled on the bread from Schwartz’s deli in Montreal and spread with a close approximation of brown deli mustard from Dusseldorf, it adds up to a pastrami on rye that only a handful of deli’s in new york can match.”
