German food in the Triangle
- Suzy Q Mar 10, 2007 04:29 AM
I haven't had good German in ages and haven't heard much buzz about it since moving to the Raleigh area a couple of years ago. Anybody got a good recommendation?
You must've turned off yr buzz-dar around the time J. Betski's opened: http://www.chowhound.com/topics/345966
It's a *great* restaurant: comfortable, confidently high-quality without being at all stuffy or pretentious, and the food is outstanding. They seem to be able to please the authenticity-seekers and the high-end-food snobs at the same time, which isn't something I would've expected to be able to say about a German/Polish restaurant in Raleigh NC. I've been recommending it to everybody I know who asks about good food in Raleigh, regardless of whether they've shown an interest in German food in the past.
The Bavarian Brathaus in Carthage serves German food, I was there several months ago. The sauerbraten was good, but I'll probably try something else when I go back.
Take 15/501 south out of Sanford. The Brathaus will be on your left as you get to Carthage,
They make their own pierogi; what can I say? if I had a car I would be there like the wind...good pierogi means good spaetzle,
I would run to Betski's
