I moved to Buffalo from the Milwaukee area. Being from Milwaukee, I grew up eating at some of the best German restaurants in the United States. As a result, I brought very high standards with me to Buffalo.
I have had some very nice and enjoyable meals at the city's other German restaurants; however, I did not find a truly magnificent German dinner until dining at the Black Forest Adler.
With your dinner entree, you get a bowl of the house salad. The house salad has greens on top with potato salad below. Both are fantastic and the buried potato salad arrives as an unexpected but very appreciated surprise.
I had the jaeger schnitzel as my entree with an additional side order of potato pancakes. The potato pancakes arrived as an order of four. The pancakes were fried to perfection with a nice crunchy "crust." I did not dress the pancakes with either sour cream or apple sauce and very much enjoyed the full potato taste.
The jaeger schnitzel was served with spaetzle. The spaetzle was also perfectly prepared - nice and firm, definitely not mushy. A good portion of the spaetzle was lightly browned with crisp edges.
Finally, the jaeger schnitzel blew me away. The sauce was perfect - well-flavored without being overpowering. Large chunks of fresh mushrooms complimented the sauce and the crisp coating surrounding the schnitzel.
The meal was amazing. The beer selection is also noteworthy. I tried three different German beers styles and they were all excellent. While I would have preferred the beers served from a tap rather than a bottle, that is a very small quibble with an otherwise amazing meal.
