"The dish—slow-cooked pork belly, Thuringian bratwurst, calf tongue, and knackwurst served with housemade sauerkraut—is very fulfilling and tasty, especially during cold days. Plus, you get to eat it in its natural habitat."

"This is one of the best restaurants in New York City. It does everything really well but I like to get its perfectly balanced Old-Fashioned and the burger, which is made with aged beef. It’s just an outstanding hamburger with a nice beefy flavor and good portions."
