Frankfurt Restaurant for a Wi-Die?
I'm a certified Wi-Die (a Wino Foodie) and I'm going to be in Frankfurt on an upcoming Saturday (June 11). Any recommendations for a restaurant with excellent food that also has a top-flight wine list? Having gone through past posts and having done a bit of research, I've learned that Francais is closed weekends and it would appear that Tiger-Restaurant is as well.
Do any of you have any ideas? The food and wine can be from anywhere, just as long as it's really good... Though I'd be super excited if we could find a place with great German wines...
Many thanks in advance!
If it's German wine you are after I would suggest Maingau Stuben (http://maingau.de/en/restaurant/index...), which has apparently changed it's name to Döpfner's (but the chef and menu remain the same). It's located in a hotel of the same name (which is not recommended) in residential Sachsenhausen, and a very quick taxi ride from the city center. The food is very good and the wine list is always winning accolades from the Deutsches Weininstitut, which as the name would suggest, is all about German wine.
That said, I do believe Tiger Restaurant is in fact open on Saturday nights. In fact my husband and I dined there only a few months ago on a Saturday. Also very good, in fact the food is probably a notch above Maingau Stuben and I seem recall that they did offer a few decent German wines as well, though I was drinking french that night and can't say for sure. But the food at Maingau Stuben is also very good and the wine list is much more focused on German wine. Guess it all depends what you are in the mood for.
