Last Dinner in Berlin

I got back to Berlin from Copenhagen (Copenhagen covered in a separate blog) around 7pm, and was down to the hotel by 7:30 -- very efficient.
On our last night in Berlin, we went to dinner at Vapiano, a restaurant on Potsdamerplatz. It's a cool Italian restaurant with a unique approach to dining. When you enter you are given a plastic card, akin to a credit card. You take your card with you to the various kitchen stations in the restaurant -- the salad bar, the pizza kitchen, the pasta kitchen, the drink bar, etc. You order what you want at each station and present your card. Data about your order is downloaded onto the card and you are given your food on a tray as you go from place to place. After you finish your meal, you present the card to the cashier and pay the total amount per the downloaded information. The food was good, fresh and not expensive. The place has caught on big, based on the number of people eating here tonight! I had a pizza, a caprice salad and red wine, all for 15 Euros. Not bad at all.
We finished up with a little souveneir shopping. Scottie bought an Art Bear to take home to remind him of this trip. We walked around through the Sony Center, and then back to the hotel for a last drink and hit the hay. We stayed at the Maritime Hotel, a nice business hotel near the Egyptian Embassy.
