If you have never been to Germany, this will count. Schmankerl Stube and its' proprietor Herr Charles Sekula have it down to a science. The building consists of the beauty of the flower surrounded terrace, dining rooms with tall ceilings and decorated with furnishings of Germany, and a Biergarten adorned with huge Hacker-Pschorr umbrellas. Waitress are dressed in different impeccably maintained Bavarian dresses. Herr Sekula floats from table to table throughout the dinner checking on patrons without becoming intrusive. They have an extensive selection of draft German beers in traditional glasses of all sizes.
The bread served before the meal was a heavy coarse and delicious bread accompanied by fresh whipped sweet butter and also a house-made anchovy, caper and pickle butter. Tables even in the biergarten are done in linen, cloth napkins and flatware.
The Fried Tomatoes with White Sauce were good. The soup of the day, Pork Shank and Bean was bursting with flavor. Smashing. The Wienerschnitzel with Spatzel was very good. Available with pork or veal. Each entrée was served with the vegetable mix that reminded me of Cowboy Caviar sans the cilantro (corn, black bean, and pepper).
My entrée was off-the-charts! I ordered the Schmankerl Wurst Teller. It consisted of Debreziner (pork smoked), Knack (pork) and Weisswurst (veal & egg) sausages. The Sauerkraut was fresh, sweet without too sweet and a touch of tart.
Charles Sekula's start was as a pastry chef and our Apple Raisin Strudel and the Bailey Cake was phenomenal. The staff is exceedingly professional and polite. They should be the poster models for manners. I even managed a peek in the kitchen......spotless, as was the entire restaurant. I live 3 hours away, and will return specifically just to eat here again. Superb!
