Does anyone know of restaurants specializing in Alsatian cuisine in the Western US?

    This may be a topic for Lleechef. She knows France very well even though this area is very close to Germany.

      Somehow I remember an Alsatian place either in Texas (Castroville is called "Little Alsace") or Southern Arizona.

      We used to have a nice one in Chelsea in NYC but it has closed. I've had some good food in Strasbourg -Kugelhof, Flamme, Choucroute and of course Reisling/Gewurtztraminer. Yum...

        I think you nailed it. Wherever Castroville is located?

          Any time of year is a good time to visit this lovely town on the banks of the Medina River, approximately 25 miles west of San Antonio. Henri Castro (for whom Castroville is named), brought colonists from Alsace, a region of northeastern France bordered by Luxembourg, Germany, and Switzerland. They sailed for Texas, and upon arrival at Port Lavaca, set off for their new home. Castroville was founded on September 3, 1844. http://www.texascooking.com/features/aug2006_castroville_texas.htm
