This subdued Bavarian-style chalet serves traditional German comfort food minus the lederhosen and tubas. Crisp-skinned roast duck, wiener schnitzel and sauerbraten are among the more popular dishes. The bar features more than 30 German and Austrian beers and a rotating list of dozens more, including brews from Poland, England and Norway. The meat-focused menu includes an array of veal, beef, pork and poultry dishes. Finish up with the apple strudel. The dining room has an intimate feel, thanks to the rich wood furnishings, dim lighting and sturdy booths and tables. German antiques, deer heads and other Old World paraphernalia create a fitting backdrop for the traditional menu.
