Look around the pretty, forest green dining room, flanked at the front by a bar lined with personalized beer mugs and wine glasses, and it's clear: This place has devoted regulars. They find their mug, have it filled with a Spaten pilsner or Franzikaner weissbier, and then consider — am I in the mood for a bratwurst and sauerkraut, or maybe stroganoff over thick squiggles of spaetzle (the unlikely love children of fettuccine and dumplings)? Beate Klobucar, who hails originally from Stuttgart, Germany, has presided over several German restaurants in St. Petersburg, the current location since 2006, with a menu that is homey, flavorful, ample and a change of pace.
