This 500-year-old tavern with wood floors and frescoed walls tucked into the cellars of the Rathaus might seem like just another ho-hum rathskeller in the German tradition of a city hall cellar restaurant for its citizens, but there’s a difference here. Some of the nooks and crannies are dark, paneled, and traditional, other corners of the sprawling space are chicly urbane; the menu includes a lot of tasty Franconian fare at reasonable prices—homemade sausage mixed with fried potatoes and eggs, or roast beef with noodles and fried onions—but also fans out to pastas and other international selections. Beverages stay close to home: Würzburger beer and lots of Franconian white wines. Get reservations for weekend meals.
