Its a new place billed as primarily German but with some Polish stuff,,,anyone been there? I beleive its in one of the new developed areas downtown..
All I know is that it is in Seaboard Station - right across the street from Seaboard Wine and Logan Trading Company and next door to the brand new Capital Grocery.
But I have no reviews, I'm afraid!
A second hand review (a friend of mine went to the soft open) is that the food is rockin... austrian and german primarily. great wine list, too... that i can attest to first-hand. good to see John K back in the biz...
Went last night for a belated Christmas party. This place ROCKS! The food is excellent, the wine and drink menu solid, and the beer selection is wonderful. Seeing as how I was with a bunch of beer geeks we sampled most of their beer varieties and pronounced them delicious. The wait staff were great and the owner/manager John was very personable and friendly.
I'll go back as soon as I can get a my wife and my babysquatter to agree on a night.
This place is outstanding. Food, wine, and service are all first rate. John and Jeremy have knocked it out of the park. I can only see them getting better. I understand that they are going to add long picnic tables outside in the spring for a biergarten atmosphere. Too cool!
I ate here Saturday night and it was AMAZING. My family is Polish and I was so excited to be able to have some authentic polish food. I had the stuffed cabbage with home made saurkraut and it was excellent. We shared the crab & mushroom pierogis and they were terrific. My date had the pork shoulder which came with kraut and potatoes. It had a taste and it was really, really good too. The service was great and they had a nice selection of beer. This was by far the best meal I have had in Raleigh in years! Thank you J Betskis!!!
Totally agree with this. Have had a couple of amazing meals there. One of the stars of the Triangle; best German/Polish food I've had since my grandmother's cooking.
Will be taking quite a number of out-of-town guests here. Apparently good German food is hard to come by anywhere, as all of my upcoming guests have listed this place as their most anticipated.
