Luberon - Late summer, restaurants and food shops

I'm going to be spending 8 nights in Murs at the very end of August into Labor Day, and am keen to hear what Chowhounders feel are some of the most wonderful restaurants in the surrounding area (Gordes, Roussillon, Bonnieux, etc.) I think at least half the time I'm just going to shop the markets and cook at home, but we (a group of six) will also want to eat out a couple of times. If there are any particularly special gourmet purveyors of meats, etc., which I should not miss, I'd love to know about those too.

The New York Times highlighted Le Vivier in L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue a while that sill somewhere to be recommended? I would be very grateful for any and all suggestions.

Berlin recommendations?

I am going to Berlin for five nights at the beginning of May and am looking for tips on great places to eat. I lived there many years ago and loved places like Habibi for falafel and Abendmahl in Kreuzberg, but I'm completely out of it now in terms of Berlin restaurants. A little cursory research yielded a few places I'm considering: Die Quadrina, Altes Europa, Vau, Florian, Marjellchen Fischers Fritz and Monsieur Vong. Please let me know if you have any suggestions. Many thanks-

Must-eats for a Tokyo first-timer

Hello! I'm traveling to from Los Angeles to Tokyo for a week at the end of October for the first time and am looking for recommendations for places to eat. I love both modest, low-key spots as well as more refined, exalted ones. I'll be staying first at the Four Seasons Marunouchi, then at the Park Hyatt. I'm particularly interested in katsu, wagyu, sake and, of course, sush, but am also open to other ideas. Please let me know if you have any suggestions.Thanks!
