Guests imme- diately feel at home in this authentic space, which husband and wife team Thomas and Gitta Maier opened in 1999. The menu is filled with true Ger- man cuisine. One of the specialties is wienerschnitzel vom kalb, which consists of breaded veal cutlets burst- ing with flavor. The restaurant boasts 12 imported German beers on tap that are served in traditional glassware. Addition- ally, all desserts are made from scratch by the in-house baker.
