I came from NYC to Wuppertal on a mission to have more Pina Bausch in my life, twice this year, in May and November. It so happened in May that the friendly, knowledgeable and attentive staff at Brasserie (adjacent to the Opera House) became my basic introduction to Germany and German people. The smartly clean and crisp place became like a little home for me, and by now I've dined there about five times, before and after performances. The food is excellent, the dishes are perfectly complemented, just adventuresome enough, and lovingly prepared. I recommend it highly. I ended up having the first goose of my life for my Thanksgiving on the road, Deutsch-style (with red cabbage, big ol' dumplings, and a baked apple, ripping-hot), and it was exquisite. Get a reservation, especially if you're going on a performance night. I'll be back in May 2014!!
