On this Monday night, there was a good crowd of people ranging from 20s to middle age. Mostly younger. I expected a wide array of biers, but the quality of food and cocktails surprised me.
I had the braised trout with vegetables and a wine butter reduction sauce. It was perfectly moist, flavorful, and not one single bone. My better half just had a pretzel, but she raved about that, too.
After my bier, I had a gin cocktail that exceeded the standard I'd expect from Secret Society. Only this German recipe I had not seen before: gin, obstler, riesling syrup and lemon.
On top of it all was a very accommodating and friendly staff in the newly-redecorated, warm setting. The policy of sharing tables "forced" us to have a great conversation with another couple.
Stammtisch is a terrific new place.
