I wanted to try a new schnitzel place and Mrs. C suggested the VAC. We summoned some friends, and called ahead for a table. When we got there it was 'dance night', and a bunch of well dressed German seniors were doing some creditable polka-dancing. There was a band and they were pretty good. But we were there to eat, not shake our collective booties, so none of us joined the festivities.
The restaurant is in the basement of the club, but it is nicely decorated. Our server was friendly and I was surprised when the manager came to our table twice to do quality checks.
We had some good German beer (try the Isenbeck dark beer on tap) and ordered a variety of things. I had a Holstein schnitzel, and Mrs. C had sauerbraten. For sides we had spätzle, pickled cabbage, and roasted potatoes. The schnitzel was out of this world but the sauerbraten was the best I have ever had. It changed my life. Well, almost. One of our friends had a decent penne pasta with salmon, and another had chicken. Both were reported to be good.
A quick survey of the menu showed that the food is mostly Bavarian fare with a few regional dishes from the rest of Deutschland. With so many tasty choices I plan on retuning very soon. Who knows, maybe I'll hit the dance floor?
