Fine dining is popular because it allows people to feast like royalty without the hassle of dry cleaning an ermine cape, burnishing a scepter, or hunting down a baby-sitter for the court jester. Today's Groupon lets you go highborn without the hassle: for $25, you get $50 worth of European fare and drinks at Redlefsen's Rotisserie & Grill. Overlooking the waterfront in the heart of downtown Bristol, Redlefsen's serves up an eclectic array of European fare in an elegant setting. Like a show-stopping duet between George Washington and King George III, Redlefsen's menu harmoniously merges Old World with New World, featuring dishes such as weinerschnitzel ($23.95)––lightly breaded veal garnished with lemon, capers, and anchovies––or the baked stuffed cod ($22.95), a fillet of local cod topped with crab-meat stuffing. Tipple a sifter of fine wine and bask in the light of a blazing fireplace whilst the chime of a charming cuckoo clock alerts diners when it's time to stand and rotate plates 45 degrees per traditional German custom.
Redlefsen's Rotisserie & Grill
European and American flags crown Redlefsen's Rotisserie & Grill, symbolizing the cuisine that can be found within. The restaurant specializes in German cuisine, particularly wiener schnitzel. When preparing this dish, cooks observe traditional techniques: they pound out the veal with a German dictionary, and then bread, fry, and accentuate it with lemon, capers, and anchovies. Chefs also create French-inspired chicken Provence and draw inspiration from Italian and Portuguese cookbooks. To complement meals, the restaurant maintains a diverse collection of imported beer, including Leffe Blond and Warsteiner.
Every Wednesday and Thursday in October, the restaurant celebrates Oktoberfest. Accordion players fill the beer hall with traditional melodies and the Alpenblumen Bavarian dancers perform folk dances.
