50 Best Restaurants in Philadelphia: 2013 » brauhaus_shmitz_philadelphia_best_restaurants
12. Brauhaus Schmitz
Yes, you can get excellent schnitzel and Bavarian pretzels at Brauhaus Schmitz. But not embracing chef Je remy Nolen’s “Modern German” cuisine ist ein grosse mistake. Dishes like his Stopfleberwurst—housemade foie gras sa usage—and the lamb prepared two ways (grilled as a chop and braised as belly) are redefining how people—smart people, anyway—look at German food. Unique Pricing: The house sells its bratwurst by the meter, so those of you who gauge your hunger by the spread of your hands (“I am this hungry tonight … ”) will feel right at home here.
Don’t Forget the Beer: Owner Doug Hager wants to do for German beer in Philadelphia what Tom Peters of Monk’s Cafe did for the Belgians. And he’s well on his way, with never-before-seen beers arriving monthly.
