Two recent news items of interest to the New York German restaurant scene.  One remembering an old place, one announcing a new place about to open.

I say monitor the airfares to Germany and Austria! You could get there and back for under 500 and you can not get more authentic than actually being there... Yum!

There used to be a Karl Ehmer franchisee across the street from Zum Stammtisch. Good that a butcher shop is returning to the area.

I arrived here from an unsuccessful search for a youtube version of Friesenlied that could compare with the beautiful singing of that German song by Carl, the singing waiter at the Sunrise Village Restaurant on Sunrise Highway on Long Island, NY, at the wedding receptions of my sister (1949) and myself (1950).  Each time he sang it, so beautifully, in both high German and low, my father, a 1929 immigrant, would sing along, with tears in his eyes.  There is no version even half as desirable as what Carl provided.  Anyone old enough to remember him?

Just came back from a couple of days in Saratoga Springs, NY.  Lots of fun at the race track (I came out ahead!)
Had dinner at the Spa Brauhaus in nearby Ballston Spa.
  Theyare not usually open on Mondays or Tuesdays, but because it was racing season, they are open 7 days.  Family owned and operated, and it looks like it's been there forever.  It's outside of town, and a little difficult to find, but even though only a few tables were filled, the food was excellent.  They bring a tureen of soup to your table (it was barley soup on our night), and hot crusty bread.  My husband's sauerbraten had a lighter gravy, but it was very tender.  I felt like steak, which was smothered with mushrooms, just as I like it.  The red cabbage was sweet and tangy, and the spaetzle was all buttery goodness.  We'll defintely go back next year (hopefully the family will keep it going!)

Well our one German restaurant called Cafe Creme didn't make it. It was open a couple of years but don't think it did a very good business. I noticed about 6 months ago they started offering coupons in the local paper, around here that seems to be a sure sign they are in trouble.

Well, we finally got one.  It's a German-American pub, but it's a start.

I am in Bellevue, Ne about 20 miles south of Omaha.  We have a really good German restaurant called Zum Biergarten.  It is run by the daughter of the couple who owned a real beloved little German one here called Edelweiss.  Edelweiss was within walking distance of my home, so we knew it well.  It was sad to see them retire.  I would say Zum is sometimes only good, often better than good.  But, from what my German friend has said, authentic.  It is often quite busy as we have an old German population here in and around Omaha.  Plus, we are right near Offutt AFB, so we see military looking for the German food they found overseas.

Another German restaurant bites the dust--this time it's Scharf's Schiller Park in Buffalo, NY:
http://www.buffalonews.com/business/article933824.ece
This is the last of the restaurants in Buffalo dedicated to German cuisine, though Ulrich's (near the hospital corridor near downtown) is still open and has a few German dishes.

Excellent little German restaurant in Norfolk, VA on Virginia Beach Blvd is the German Pantry.  Been there 40 years in a little strip mall and owned by a very nice German couple.  Food is excellent!

The Bavarian Chef in Madison, VA (north of Charlottesville) is still going strong after nearly four decades.  And, they have opened a second location in Fredericksburg.  I have enjoyed each and every visit.  http://thebavarianchef.com/index.html

We are having a late night dinner tonight at Schmankerl Stube in Hagerstown, MD.  Ate here once a few years ago and thought the food was well above average.  Looking forward to it!

Cincinnati is a very German-heritaged town - and yet we keep seeing german eateries close
 
the latest - http://cincinnati.com/blo...athskeller-has-closed/
 

Christy’s, a popular outdoor beer garden and indoor bar, had continued to operate even after after its sister restaurant Lenhardt’s closed in February. Both were housed in the 122-year-old building on McMillan Street near in Clifton Heights, a German-style mansion supposedly built by beer baron Christian Moerlein for his daughter and son-in-law. The building has been owned by the Windholtz family since 1955.

TJ-
My buddy who lives in Mason took me there a few years ago.  I remember liking the atmosphere, but the food wasn't very good.  Still, sorry to see it close.

lleechef-
Don't you mean yunz?  I'll be happy to.  Seeing your post reminds me we just had German food together on Sunday. 
 
Still don't understand why we had to wait for a table at Schmidt's considering we used a good German name like Hoffman to give the hostess!

He will never live that down, will he?
 
To stay on topic, I have to admit that in about four tries, that was the best meal I have had at Schmidt's.  None of the sides rose above ordinary, but all the sausages from the buffet were quite tasty.
 
Or maybe it was the company?

With my Bahama Mama at Schmidt's I thoroughly enjoyed the sides......the potato pancakes were crispy and the applesauce was chunky and no cinnamon......even the pickle spears were nice and crunchy.
The food was good but the company was great!
There used to be a German restaurant in Ambridge called Mad Anthony's.  There were peanut shells all over the floor and oom-pa-pa music played by a bunch of doctors from Sewickley.  They made a mean sauerbraten.  It was on Merchant St. up by Old Economy.

I should have asked to try one of your potato pancakes.  They weren't on the buffet.
 
Wasn't Mad Anthony's supposed to be haunted?  I remember my dad taking me there once when I was really young.

Next time I'll order a side of potato pancakes just for you.
 
Yes, Mad Anthony's was supposed to be haunted by the ghosts of a Harmonite brother and sister.  There were reports of footsteps on the cellar stairs, doors opening and closing, chandeliers swinging and a cold chill experienced by workers and patrons.  I pretty much chalked it up to too much bier.

Not a restaurant but if you are going to be in Milwaukee during late August, you should check out GermanFest.



It is one in our summer-long series of music and ethnic festivals.

Gemütlichkeit!

20+ years ago I used to frequently travel 145 miles to Nashville just to eat at the Gersthaus.  Then about 10 years ago or so, the Gersthaus acquired a sister restaurant right across the river from me in Evansville, Indiana.  Those 145 mile trips were instantly reduced to 10.
