Just the name, Funkenhausen, connotes, well - fun. But the West Town restaurant is no Disneyesque gimmick. The space is elegantly casual and Executive Chef Mark Steuer mixes a magical Southern American/German culinary alchemy in the kitchen inspired by his Charleston roots and Teutonic family heritage. The wine/stein dine FunkenBrunchen ensues Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to 3 pm.: try southern riffs like Ham Biscuit (ham, egg and pimento beer cheese Mornay); jammy Jonnycakes; and shrimp & grits. Or go heartier with Germanic options like Thuringer sausage, smoked potato salad, ramps, sunny egg; Spaetzle Carbonara; or a Hot Schnitz Sandwich. Healthy items include a plate of local, seasonal fruit and a Brunch Salad. "Haus" made pastry changes weekly and Mimosa Service includes a never-ending supply of $6 mimosas. Sturdy Metric coffee, cocktails and an impressive list of German beer make it all just about perfect.
- Brunch: "Bring little Hans and Heidi who get their own menu of buttered spaetzle, a bowl of creamy grits with egg or Johnnycakes."
- Best for Brunch Because: Set in a historic West Town building, Funkenhausen presents an inspired menu of German/Southern dishes, freshly made pastries and an endless supply of $6 Mimosas.
