Foreign Food Night

You may have noticed that my husband and I skipped Foreign Food Night for July. I forgot to address this earlier (sorry), but we skipped it because the first weekend of the month was the 4th of July weekend and we were in Philadelphia visiting friends. The only foreign thing I tasted there was a really great Shiraz from Australia (yum)! So, we are going to pick back up in August. This time it’s my turn to choose which restaurant (remember my husband chose Nam last time)…

I have been trying to figure out what type of cuisine to choose for the last few days and I am leaning toward German. I don’t know why, exactly. German food, to me, seems to be a lot of sausage and meat and I am not much of a meat eater. Still, something is pulling me in that direction. I Googled “authentic German restaurant NYC” and came up with Zum Stammtisch, a restaurant in Glendale, Queens that appears to be inaccessible by subway. A friend of mine has recommended Lederhosen in the Village, so that’s a possibility. The menu at Zum Schneider in the East Village looks good but they seem to get mixed reviews.

Do any of my NYC readers have any suggestions on where to go to get my German food fix? Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated….

  1. Wherever you go, just don’t go to Heidelberg in the Upper East Side. The last time I was there, they let a dog inside to run around the restaurant, where’s the health department? But besides that, the food is nothing to write about. Good luck!

  2. Hi Tracy – I’m sorry to say that all of my favorite German restaurants on the upper east side have closed. I’ve been to Zum Stammtisch, years ago, and it was wonderful! I think we took a car service … I know that doesn’t help, but it was well worth the trip.

    Btw, I’m on the upper west side too and am looking for information on farm shares. Which one are you using and how did you find it? If you don’t mind sharing you can email me at: or visit my blog:

    Thanks, and I hope you find some yummy German food!
