Ask Lübeckers where to eat, and they’ll probably steer you this time-honored favorite, where warmly lit, dark-paneled rooms are an especially welcome and atmospheric refuge on a chilly evening. Fresh Baltic fish and seafood are the menu standouts (and hearty fish soup is a meal in itself), though chef Patrick Marquand also prepares a lot of beef and game, including an aromatic roast duck and a delicious currywurst made from deer. Desserts couple Lübeck’s love of chocolate and the kitchen’s skill with pastry. Be sure to get a reservation.
