What You'll Get
Cooking food over an open flame can impart smoky flavor and seal in savory juices, but cooking food over an eternal flame can get a bobsledding team kicked out of the Olympics. Get your fill of flame-cooked fare with today's Groupon for fine German cuisine at Black Forest Restaurant in Arden. Choose between the following options:
- For $12, you get $25 worth of dinner, served from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m.
- For $6, you get $12 worth of the lunch, served from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Black Forest Restaurant's veteran staff of German-trained chefs serves up a bevy of Italian-tinged Teutonic specialties in a beautiful, alpine chalet. Midday noshers can sate appetites with lunch starters such as the polychromatic bruschetta assembled from grilled basil bread and fresh toppings of tomatoes and herbs ($5). The Reuben openly mocks hunger pangs with heaping meats nestled between bread and served with a choice of side including sweet potato fries or german potato salad ($8). Preface dinner campaigns with appetizers such as the potato pancakes, served with sour cream and applesauce ($6). German specialties such as pork wiener schnitzel fill tummies with sautéed, breaded pork, piled high with lemons and capers ($15), while the veal oscar matches sautéed calf cutlets with crabmeat, asparagus, and hollandaise ($25). The apple strudel—a flaky puff pastry stuffed with apples, raisins, and nuts—finishes off hearty meals with a vanilla-rum sauce bath to enhance its rich flavor and complete the last in a series of complicated pirate initiation rites ($5).
A wide selection of wines and German beers loosen mandibles for toothsome feasts. The rustic, alpine-style chalet, adorned with wall-mounted antlers, wood paneling, and murals by celebrated German artist Werner Oppelt, enhances the authentic Deutschland ambience.
