The staff at Jacoby’s German Biergarten, a century-old eatery, charms taste buds with rich cuisine and hearty brews. Kindle food furnaces with a succulent starter such as potato pancakes alongside sour cream and apple sauce ($3.99 for two, $5.99 for four). At entree time, the rindfleisch rouladen rolls out a top round steak woven with bacon, onions, celery, and carrots, cushioned by a spaetzle pillow and blanket of hunter sauce ($12.99). Quell a rebellious appetite with a dose of rahm schnitzel, a breaded pork cutlet drizzled with lemon caper beurre blanc and dished with red cabbage ($12.99). Like Batman with Robin or Confucius with Ed McMahon, main courses do their most revered work when joined by a sidekick, such as warm potato salad infused with bacon and sweet-vinegar sauce ($3.99).
Carrying on the Teutonic tradition of ale enlightenment, Jacoby’s pours some of the world’s most celebrated suds, including a bevy of imports from such exotic lands as Germany, Belgium, and California. Beer flights includes samples of five beers ($5/flight). With 18 tipples on tap and dozens more available in message-free bottle form, dedicated lager completists will require multiple visits to sample the full selection.
Jacoby's German Biergarten
An effervescent hotel bartender from Luxembourg. A tavern with an unpopular owner. A beautiful German cook. In 1904, these three elements joined forces and Jacoby's German Biergarten was born. More than a century later, the bustling downtown spot with a storied history remains a sought-after destination, even through collapsing economies, ownership changes, and international lederhosen shortages. Patrons can dig into classic delicacies such as Wiener Schnitzel, German sausage sandwiches, and hearty burgers, pairing them with domestic and imported brews including Paulaner, Schneider Edel Weiss, and Franziskaner Hefe.
