In the middle of a very busy summer, Sasha and I finally found time to meet up for dinner a couple of weeks ago.
We headed to Bar Corso close to Sendlinger Tor, which looks a bit plain from the outside, but has been lovingly decorated with old oak stools, industrial lamps, fresh flowers and handwritten menus.
The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly, and Bar Corso works just as well in the daytime for coffee and cake as it does in the evening for a three-course meal and cocktails.
We started with homemade ginger beer and the tuna steak. At 30 €, it was one of the pricier meals on the menu, but we both fancied fish. Wrapped in a sesame crust and served with a raw sweet potato salad, it was light and tender – perfect for a summer evening. Where possible, Bar Corso uses seasonal, regional produce (okay, maybe not in the case of the tuna), and their small menu changes regularly.
After dinner we shared a crème brûlée, an indulgent treat after our reasonably healthy dinner.
If you’ve been strolling past Bar Corso on your way to the Isar/Glockenbachviertel without giving it a second glance, do pop in sometime – for lunch, dinner or an after work gin.
