German food

Hello my new food friends! I was wondering if any of you gals/guys knew where I could grab some good, authentic German chow. Thanks!

  1. I'm not exactly sure where in New England your looking, but here is a link to a recent thread about German food.

    1. The Student Prince (or "The Fort") as it can also be known in Springfield, IMHO has absolutely excellent German food, and I personally love the beergarten, relaxed atmosphere as well. The prices are right and they have fantastic specials. I'd highly recommend giving it a try.

        I've witheld this suggestion because I'd expected so many more responses. But....if in Maine, Morse Saurkraut in Waldoboro, off Rt 1, has added a cafe a couple of years ago. The kraut is alive and is sold in the deli along with a great selection of wursts and even black bread. It is a magnet for local German expats. The cafe serves nice lunches centered around wursts and soups.

      2. Theo's, Elm Street, Manchester NH, near the Verizon Center, does a German menu on Wed nights. The chef is from Germany and it is his chance to stretch!

        Also, look at the Danbury Inn, Danbury NH, very good German food.

          That was a great article in Hippo on Theo's - they have chefs come in on different nights to strut their stuff, looks like ya get the real deal for Greek night, Italian night, etc. I can't wait to try them.

        2. The following fairly recent thread has much to talk about on this subject...

          1. By far the best german food I have had (other than what I had in germany) would have to be Old Heidelberg in Bethel. In the summer months they have a bier garten. The food is authentic and the desserts are to die for. Their struedel is wonderful.
            I have been to Student Prince and East Side and I found them both to be off the mark.
            Student Prince was definitely better than East Side but nothing like Old Heidelberg. At East Side it was $12 for a L of Radler! Radler so we paid $6 for .5L of sprite..... I was really dissapointed, Althought the atmosphere was fun.
            There is also Noack's in Meriden if you are up for cooking your own. My favorite butcher in CT.
