Linguine Amatriciana / Vino / Espresso. A lunch classic for the Barkow Leibinger Architekten work experience. If it sounds like your lunch palette…and you, due to unfavorable and tragic circumstances, find yourself in the socially trendy and uber-chic district of Charlottenburg, make sure to check out Cantinetta, a lovely Italian gem hiding out in this...
