Contemporary Food Lab is a creative hub and incubator in the area of food and hospitality.
An important part of our work is the attempt to link insightful discussions to sensual experiences.
We combine professional gastronomic Know-How with Cultural Programming and Place Making.

Amidst the renowned art and architecture of Berlin’s most visited museum, Contemporary Food Lab will create an exciting new café and catering concept. Just as our other Berlin restaurants Katz Orange and Panama, Gropius Saal will combine innovative gastronomy with unique atmosphere. Everyday business of the café will be at the foundation of the catering concept, which will host events for Gropius Bau and Contemporary Food Lab at the museum as well as off site functions.
