The cozy side room and larger dinner hall are the kind of authentic setups you usually associate with tourist brochures. But there’s nothing contrived about the food. A carnivore’s delight, the menu features tremendous sauerbraten, an outstanding sausage sampler and some of the best goulash in the English-speaking world. Mirabell may be best known for its bar—featuring a staggering array of heady German beers—but the restaurant shouldn’t be overlooked.
