Wander in off the street and you might think this gem is little more than a charming German pub. It is—and has been since ’71—but since ’91 it’s also been one of the best spots in town for rouladen, thin beef rolled with bacon, onions and pickles. The German comfort food staple is served with rich brown gravy, sweet braised cabbage and perfect, fluffy spaetzle dumplings. Try other authentic offerings like hackepeter (rich, fresh steak tartare on rye with capers and onions) and Wiener schnitzel (pounded-thin veal breaded and fried crispy). The gratis fruit schnapps is a perfect ending to the meal.
