Black Forest Inn Mpls. MN

I haven't eaten at the Black Forest Inn in over 15 years. I'll be there tonight. Any recommendations in the duck or rabbit department.

  1. I recommend you plan on ordering something else, as their online menu shows neither duck nor rabbit dishes.

      Weird. I had a rabbit pasta there once (several years ago) that was pretty good. Must have been a special, or dropped from the menu.

        15 years ago they had rabbit stew. The liver pate and the Ham and sauerkrut balls look good. didn't think to check the online menu, thanks

          My visit was much more recent than 15 years ago. Probably 4 or 5. ;-)


    2. There is rabbit, and it is pretty good, but they don't always have it. You have to download the pdf version of the menu to see it.

      My favorite dishes are the Nieren (veal kidneys) and the Paprika Schnitzel. They both have a wonderful depth of flavor. I'm also a HUGE fan of the pate. I always get it, sometimes as a main dish.

      I'd suggest staying away from the Kasseler Rippchen. It is the pork chop and it tends to be very dry.

        I love the spaetzel and lentil salad.

        1. re: zataar

          Spaetzel, lentil salad, sauerkraut balls. Heaven.

      2. They usually have one rabbit offering. Um, get that?

        1. Our meal was great and yes they had rabbit on the menu. I"m writing a longer version of the wonderful evening and will post when finished. Something was up with the liver pate, it came highly recommended and yet, I don't know. Thanks for the feedback.

          1. As a side, I just had their cheeseburger as MInnesota monthly ranked it 4th in the state. I do not share their positivity - the meat was flavorless and dry and the bun was charred.

              Why would a german restaurant attempt to pull off a cheeseburger. It's like a Japanese restaurant trying to pull off a beerbrat.

              1. re: reservationsplease

                Maybe for the same reason that people order a cheeseburger in a German restaurant? ;-)
