Locals call this place “la Maison de la Choucroute,” as it serves the best sauerkraut-and-pork in town. Set in a former tannery dating from 1572, this antiques-filled restaurant opened in 1949. It sits idyllically on the water, its terrace opening onto the canal. If you’re not tempted by its signature dish, the chef also prepares veal kidneys with local white wine, the Belle Strasbourgeoise foie gras, or the stuffed guinea fowl on a bed of choucroute. Save room for the kugelhopf glazed with sweet Gewürztraminer liqueur or the Alsatian fruit tart.
