Fodor's Review

Harkening back to his German heritage, chef-owner Tim Wiechmann and his wife, Bronwyn, the restaurant's namesake, have brought a rib-sticking, yet sophisticated taste of Central and Eastern Europe to Union Square. The menu here includes juicy hand-stuffed pork sausages served with powerfully seasoned sauces, hearty dumplings, noodle dishes (try the chewy pork blood noodles with tender nuggets of pork), and sauerbraten made, not with your average grade of meat, but with Wagyu beef. Small farms supply many ingredients and a designated baker makes the hot pretzels, grainy breads, and desserts (don't miss the Bavarian special of fluffy pan-sautéed pancake batter bits topped with warm fruit sauce). To wash it down, try any of the excellent beers or German, Austrian, or Northern Italian red or white wines. With an outside biergarten and a cozy interior filled with small tables set with Medieval manor–like carved wooden chairs, the only thing missing from this Germanic oasis is an Oompah band.
