Der Jaeger is a private fine dining facility where guests can browse the art and antique inventory while your food is being prepared. Guests are also welcome to sit at the bar and watch the chef at work. Our table was centered in the middle of the room and surrounded by beautiful artwork, German books and literature, war artifacts, and other memorabilia.
As Nicholas and our friend's daughter played on the floor, our gracious host, Sylvana, started bringing out bowl after bowl of delicious homemade cuisine. We first started out with a delicious bowl of soup; each adult had a different type so we can all have a taste of each others. Soup was followed by a delicious sausage plate that was served with the best sauerkraut I had ever had. After the "appetizers" we feasted on beef rouladen, sauerbraten, goulash, German potato salad, and homemade spatzle. With the décor of the room, the smells, the food, and the music, it really felt like I was in Deutschland. What really made me happy was Nicholas was not afraid to try the variety of food. He really loved the spatzle and goulash; looks like we have a future foodie on our hands.
One of my favorite features of this establishment is the hospitality. Guests are encouraged to sit back and relax enjoy the meal for as long as you wish. Because it is private dining, reservations must be made in order for each plate to be specifically prepared for you. I love family style meals, and I love restaurants that make you feel like family. Nicholas and his lovely playmate really felt comfortable and that says something because children are the toughest critics.So for an unforgettable family experience, I definitely suggest that you make your reservation at Der Jaeger. Until next time... Celebrate family, friends, and traditions.
