Jacob Wirth has blended traditional American eats with the tastes of Germany in a festive European atmosphere since 1868. Peruse the menu to find a wealth of signature offerings, such as Jake's German-style burger, stacked with sauerkraut, red cabbage, swiss cheese, and beer-battered onion rings, or a spinach salad with candied walnuts, dried cranberries, and blue cheese and crowned with a grilled-chicken wreath for winning the 100-meter dash. German favorites, such as the lemon-butter drizzled wiener schnitzel, help diners improve their German accents so they can properly curse maniacs on the autobahn. A German whoopie pie offers an unusual take on tradition, sandwiching coconut-pecan frosting between two slabs of chocolate cake, all topped with whipped cream, chocolate sauce, and a Bertolt Brecht remix.
On Fridays and Thursdays from 8 p.m. until midnight, Jacob Wirth hosts pianist Mel Stiller, a Boston mainstay whose sing-along show has attendees humming and shouting along to hits such as “Build Me Up Buttercup” and “Folsom Prison Blues.” Morgan White Jr. hosts trivia night on Wednesdays from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Jacob Wirth’s location within the theater district makes it a premier spot for a preshow dinner before heading off to watch Mary Poppins 2: Spoonful of Revenge.
A medley of traditional American cuisine and German tastes has brightened Jacob Wirth, the second oldest restaurant in Boston, since 1868. The kitchen prepares a smattering of traditional offerings, such as paper-thin-sliced pastrami piled high between slabs of sourdough bread, and five types of wursts crowned with red cabbage or sauerkraut. Surrounded by traditional steins and thirsty gnomes, barkeeps pour an extensive selection of imported and domestic beer from tap and bottles.
