This familial and sometimes rowdy Apfelwein tavern may not be ideal for an intimate dinner for two, but it provides an authentic, entertaining experience found only in Frankfurt. Local specialties fill the menu, like pork knuckle with home fried potatoes, grilled pork belly with fried onions, the ubiquitous Grüne Sosse (green sauce) with at least seven herbs, and schnitzels galore. The vegetable Rösti with herb sour cream acts as a token meal in what is really a shrine for meat lovers. A ribbed glass of refreshing apple wine adds just the right accent to the lively dining experience.
