Chalet Alpina: Gemutlichkeit

Not as good as Silver Swan (RIP) in Manhattan was, but after 25 years, nothing has changed. Accordian playing "Edelweiss", waitress named Helga, thinly pounded wienerschnitzel, garagantuan potato pancakes, Bavarian plate with smoked and roast pork chops and bratwurst with sauerkraut, hash browns, spaetzle, Spaten beer. Cozy.
