Frankfurt residents lavish praise and patronage on what they consider one of the best restaurants featuring traditional German cuisine. Make yourself comfortable in the homey dining rooms featuring rough hewn timber posts and beams and decorated with high backed tapestry chairs and small table lamps. Try the delicious asparagus when served in season. Venison, pheasant and sausage entrees are also quite good. A must for time-honored German dining.
Share a schnitzel and Schöfferhofer Weizen with the locals in this inn/restaurant that has been standing for 500 years. Savor pork knuckle, beef liver "Berlin-style," or if you prefer, grill your own steak on the hot lava stones at tableside, served with homemade bread and fresh salads. Despite the hearty fare, plan to save room for dessert to try the hot apple streudel, stuffed pancake with blueberries and cream or the special red fruit jelly.
Favored for its festive atmosphere and reasonable prices, Apfelwein Wagner is a traditional German apple wine café. Hearty German food is on the menu, like slow cooked steak with horseradish sauce, wurst and schnitzel, and lots of potatoes. One of the highlights of your meal here will be watching the bustling server who does nothing but replace empty glasses of apple wine.
Bistro tables, slatted chairs, low hanging lights and a chalkboard menu speak to the nature of this trendy eatery. In summer, outdoor seating hugs the street corner around the restaurant for enjoying traditional, hearty German favorites al fresco. Ever-changing daily specials feature in-season delicacies like tender noodles with mince, butterkase, and baby leeks.
