I make it a required stop to this food Mecca in the little town of Nuremberg everytime I visit. The restaurant occupies an old wine merchants' meeting house dating back to 1550. On your first visit, you'll swear you must be in the wrong place because there are no overbearing signs or cafe tables outside. Just pull the chain for the bell at the door (which in itself is pretty cool) and wait to be greeted and welcomed in to the small restaurant. There is no ala carte menu just a preset, daily menu of 6 courses (or 4 if you choose, but why would you). I HIGHLY recommend the wine paring as the wines in the night we went were paired perfect. This was the only restaurant that I've been to in Germany that paired a Cal Cab (2004 Ridge) with its meal (venison..heavenly). The food is art and the service is impeccable. The chef is known for introducing herbs to foods and for the use of unique ingredients. Our dinner included a puréed lentil with baby onion and heirloom tomatoes in a glittering pool of watermelon broth.....yum. The entire dining experience took 3 hours and honestly, we were surprised how quickly it went. Your taste buds and sense of smell will go places they havent been. Two nights before, I had eaten in Paris at Alaine Ducasse and folks, this experience was more memorable. Make reservations well ahead a the restaurant only sits about 20 to 25.
