Irena Hoxie performed a Teutonic transformation with new sconces, paint in a warm orange-red-cream palette, ficus and trellising greenery, and a soundtrack of oom-pah and Bavarian polka music. For newbies she'll explain what spaetzle is (you have to get it: soft, irregular nubbins of buttery handmade egg noodles that were made to accommodate luscious brown gravy), and if you speak a little German, she'll gently correct your conjugation or those pesky gendered articles. The menu is a short, one-pager of German classics, from thinly pounded, breaded pork schnitzel with different toppings to classic grilled bratwurst, pale and plump knackwurst and a currywurst, that cultish Berlin street food topped with a curried tomato sauce.
