Sadly the three times I was lucky enough to dine there was not nearly enough to get the ability to try some of the dishes which I missed. The octopus bacon was excellent. Tony is the best bar tender anywhere in town not to mention he's also in seminary school and gives a stellar sermon , and each of the waiters treat guests as if they were family. In addition to all of this, Martin is easily one of the best chefs in town. Now I'm really curious to return and sample their weekend brunch. Serious Place for serious palates.
The decor of Affare leaves something to be desired, it is starkly modern with those pretty-ugly black padded back chairs that remind me of seedy Vegas, granted I've never been to Vegas haha. The work of art they create with various sauces, compotes, crumbles, and sorbets is amazing. It filled up quite a bit later on, but you shouldn't need a rezzie if you're in early enough. Their menus are seasonal, and we had the summer menu. This was our first time trying German food so we didn't really know what to expect.
Underneath each scallop was a nice portion of horseradish mashed potatoes with a ghoulish green color to them, you'd almost mistake for wasabi. It was pleasantly under sweetened but oddly under spiced. I could go on about the food, but the menu is pretty extensive so I'd just recommend trying something that jumps out to you, especially with tons of shareable and small plate options. I had the omelet and others enjoyed items like the German Farmer's Breakfast, Eggs Benedict, and the fluffy apple pancake. Then we split the duck sampler which was absolutely beautiful.
When my parents moved into a condo across the street they began frequenting the place, and soon everyone at Affare had taken our entire family into the fold as if we'd been lifelong friends. Das wohl modernste Flirt- und Kontaktportal im Netz listet täglich hunderte von neuen Usern und bietet angemeldeten Mitgliedern eine unglaubliche Vielfalt von Möglichkeiten. I think it comes down to preparation, and they definitely got things right. We ordered the brat trio which was delicious! My boyfriend planned a somewhat of a surprise anniversary dinner here for us to celebrate four years. We split a smoked spinach salad.
It has a pleasant decor and dress seemed to range from casual to business. We also had the käsespätzle with ham and onion. My husband had his usual, the jaegerschnitzel topped with a fresh farm egg -- the only way to eat it! We were seated near the front door which made it a little chilly. Overall it was a decent experience. I actually was not a fan of salmon, but the Scottish Salmon at Affare changed my view on that.
Film Affäre Wednesday, April 25th Join us for this culinary journey through film — featuring the work of filmmaker Jon Favreau. Thank you Tony and staff, for making our evening a culinary delight. I don't know if they were short staffed or what was going on, but that did take a bit of the awesome out of our experience. We ended up with the brat trio, which came with sauerkraut, red cabbage kraut, and brat potatoes. The balsamic foam added a great texture to the otherwise smooth pasta and carrot puree.
The meat sampler platter is a must try, the martinis are crafted perfectly, the service is impeccable and the food is unlike any in the area. This item is from the happy hour menu, but our server was very accomodating. Overall they were really good about refilling them with only short, intermittent periods of an empty glass. Isn't it nice to not feel rushed at a restaurant just so they could seat more people? The staff were friendly, professional, and knowledgeable of the items on the menu. I stumbled upon Affare killing time before an art exhibit and am so glad I did. The menu itself contains a wide variety of local seasonal offerings.
It truly is a work of edible art! By intensifying antagonisms between right and left and by forcing individuals to choose sides, the case made a lasting impact on the of the French nation. In it he attacked the army for covering up its mistaken of Dreyfus, an action for which Zola was found guilty of libel. The place was nearly empty and there was a 3 piece strings group playing music in the corner, a classy touch. It was so rich, the marrow melted in your mouth and straight onto your waistline and the filet was cooked almost a perfect medium rare, but seemed to have rested a tad too long so the inside was a little over done. The food is outstanding by all accounts. The food was terrific as always.
And it was not even close see pics. I also ordered a gin punch which was served in a festive silver overlaid glass mug. Had a great experience from the twisted pretzel appetizers with specialty mustard sauce to the authentic German bratwurst, to the wine and dessert. Same if you want your meal Super-Sized. I loved loved loved the mac and cheese and the pretzel.

This place was more upscale than I was expecting, but I didn't feel out of place.
