A very small cozy wood-paneled restaurant in the old part of Nürnberg. To enter Essigbrätlein you need to use a doorbell and well inside this 450-year old establishment only 20 seats are available so an advanced booking is recommended for this 2-star (Guide Michelin) Restaurant.
Gault-Millau-guide rewarded the 2012 “Chef of the year“ to Andree Köthe one of two main chefs on Essigbrätlein (the other chef is Yves Ollech).
We had a lunch menu staring with a few amuses. The first dish was
wild-char with radish and quince.
This was followed by a Savoy-cabbage with oats.
After this we had a wonderful lamb with lambs-lettuce-salad.
For dessert we had rhubarb with herbs.
A lunch for two with matching wines ended up a little bit over €200.
A very pleasant and truly unique restaurant well worth a visit.
