Get Your Schnitzel at Grawemeyer's

  • Grawemeyer's
Grawemeyer's, which opened a little more than a year ago in a charming old porters hotel on South Main, added a new focus on German cuisine a few months ago.

According to Cynthia Grawemeyer, who owns the restaurant with her husband Mark, the restaurant's menu had been through variations with different chefs, but at some point the couple decided to stick with what they knew, and that was German food.

Both Cynthia and Mark are from German stock, and many of the dishes they serve are based on family recipes. Some of the recipes were gleaned from letters from the 1950s that were written between Mark's mother and her sister.

The menu includes a German dinner for two with bratwurst, frickadelle, and knackwurst served with sauerkraut, applesauce, and mashed potatoes. There's also spaetzle and schnitzel.

They also offer rolls imported from Germany. The rolls have a hard crust and are soft on the inside.

For those looking for lighter fare, Cynthia notes that the black bean burger is one of their biggest sellers. They also serve deli sandwiches, salads, breakfast items, and more.
