Cooking at home involves the risk of small burns, spilled liquids, and the advances of an oven in heat. Avoid stovetop suitors with today's Groupon to Jaegerhaus in North Naples. Choose between the following options:
- For $12, you get $25 worth of German fare for a table of any size.
- For $23, you get $50 worth of German fare for a table of four or more diners.
Recipient of a Naples Daily News Ninth Annual Reader’s Choice Award in 2011, Jaegerhaus cranks out authentic German dishes that dazzle diners in a colorful, rustic setting. Plump veal wienerschnizel ($22) suits up to wrestle hunger into submission with its rich textures and choreographed pile-drivers, and hearty beef goulash ($16) sings with sprinkles of paprika. Bratwurst arrives with a choice of two sides, such as spaetzle potato dumplings or mashed spuds ($11), and cooks build smaller plates of potato pancakes ($7.95) or herring drizzled with sour cream ($6.95) to satisfy mildly hungry patrons and pac-men practicing restraint.
Jaegerhaus’s casual dining area houses clusters of intimately spaced tables set amid traditional artwork. The restaurant’s outdoor patio bathes cutlery-wielders in natural light, and the bar area features lattice-work trellises ideal for cultivating a comfortable mood or inspiring impromptu games of beanbag toss.
At Jaegerhaus, just about everything is imported from Germany: the age-old family recipes, the curtains, and perhaps most importantly, the man who cooks the food. Chef Sebastian Heyer and his family moved to the United States in 2009 to fulfill their dream of opening a German restaurant.
The Heyers soon transformed a local Naples establishment into an old-time Southern German café, and established a business that has earned multiple Naples Daily News Readers' Choice awards in the categories of "Best German Food" and "Dishes Most Fun to Pronounce Incorrectly." Inside, dirndl-clad servers deliver authentic German eats, such as wiener schnitzel, or schweinehaxe—a skinless roasted-pork shank. Visitors can get cozy amid the intimate dining room's curio decor, or slide up next to the trellis-lined, exposed-brick bar while sipping on domestic and imported beers.
