At Continental Treat Fine Bistro, local ingredients elevate German and Eastern European delicacies, which play nicely with a global wine menu. Piquant paprika sauce defines the Hungarian goulash ($19.95), which drapes cubed beef and locally harvested veggies over a bed of spaetzle. The Munich-style pork chop mingles with sausage and mushroom sauce ($24.95), and dill cream ($19.95) drizzles the ground veal cutlet. For dessert, keep teeth from mistaking mistletoe for a palate cleaner by sinking them into the fürst pückler torte ($9.95) of sponge cake, butter cream, and marzipan draped in dark chocolate. Dining companions can clink a glass of New Zealand pinot noir ($10) against an Italian pinot grigio ($10), or swig from the selection of Trappist beers. Additionally, Continental Treat provides diners with a gluten-free and vegetarian menu menu from which to order specialty dishes or to fold into a swan to signal you’re ready to order.

Continental Treat Fine Bistro's executive chef Elizabeth Palmowski changes her menu of European cuisine on a daily basis, incorporating seasonal ingredients from local markets whenever possible. She helms a diverse kitchen staff, which includes sous chefs from Hungary, Switzerland, and the Czech Republic who help bring her creations to life. The bistro crafts seared meats marinated with beer, wine and spirits that hail from their staff's Central and Eastern European hometowns. Palmowski and her team can also accommodate dietary restrictions, offering entire menus of vegetarian and gluten-free meals.
Candlelight and live jazz bands help keep the mood elegant at dinnertime as guests sip Old and New World wines or one of many Trappist beers. To familiarize guests with its massive list of beverages, the restaurant hosts informational wine and beer nights, allowing partcipants to sample libations from around the world, expand their palates, and learn how to sophisticatedly perform the perfect spit-take.
