Young, energetic, and full of fresh ideas: The dynamic vibe of Berlin has made the capital a hub in the European startup scene. That same vibe permeates Factory Berlin, a massive new technology campus and startup incubator, funded by Google, that's attracting such notable tech tenants as SoundCloud, Twitter, and Uber. The latest star to set up at Factory is Michelin-starred chef Tim Raue, who opened his fourth restaurant, studio TIM RAUE, at the Prenzlauer Berg tech campus earlier this year. The caliber of the weekday business-lunch specials is befitting of Raue’s star-chef pedigree while at a midday-friendly price point, and in the evenings, foodies can look forward to prix-fixe dinner menus ranging from five to 12 courses. Raue’s fondness for Asian cuisines is one of his calling cards, and the changing menu may include such Thai-influenced delicacies as sea bream with lily blossoms or spicy papaya salad with red prawns.
