Eat in Chicago: Berghoff Café

Grilled veal bratwurst with sauerkraut on a Bavarian pretzel roll, served with mustard, Berghoff chips, and a pickle

At over a hundred years old, The Berghoff is one of the oldest restaurants in the nation. For this reason as well as many others, it's a must-visit for tourists of the Windy City or even locals looking for solid German food. After years of impatiently waiting, I finally visited the restaurant this past summer. Like any good patron of a German establishment, I tried several dishes composed of meat and potatoes, including a bratwurst topped off with sauerkraut, potato pancakes with apple sauce, and German potato salad. The dishes were as hearty and tasty as expected. Needless to say, I left one happy quarter-German lady.
