Great restaurant that really has it all:
* Fun location at the heart of bustling Eimsbüttel.
* An eclectic interior design that mixes a boar's head with Riviera style bookshelves full of cook books and golden candlestick-holders.
* A really innovative menu of German dishes with a modern twist.
* And friendly staff with enough personality to give non-boilerplate recommendations
We tremendously enjoyed the giant pork chops in cocoa cauce, goat cheese apple burgers, a lovely Spanish red wine made of Grenache and Tempranillo grapes, and a lovely sweet but crisp dessert wine that wasn't on the menu.
Had a blissfully wonderful evening at Brüdigams. We came for the schnitzel, and were fully satisfied. The restaurant is small, with walls covered in cookbooks, mismatched tables, and a small bar in front of the kitchen. You can peek through the windows and see everything going on in the kitchen.
The service was lovely, relaxed, and present. We ordered the minestrone soup and each our own schnitzel. We were delighted at the small taste the kitchen sent out, which was rhubarb and fresh greens meant to be taken in one bight. The bread brought my boyfriend back to his childhood because it reminded him of the bread his mother used to buy. It came with olive tapenade and we tried to save it for the soup. The presentation for the soup was very nice, the bowl came out hot, with the two raviolis and a few spring vegetables in it, then the broth was poured on from a tea pot. The broth was very tasty, but the soup lacked vegetables and any resemblance to a minestrone soup.
The schnitzel was fabulous. Traditional, home made and tasted so fresh. I had roasted potatoes with mine, while my boyfriend ordered a mashed potato/rhubarb mix. Both came with "grandmas" cucumber salad.
We were too full for desert.
They offer a menu for around 30 euros where the guest can select an appetizer, main dish and dessert. If we had been more hungry we would have taken them up on that offer. There is also a prix fixe menu with seasonal selections on the first page. Something I would also like to try.
Like I said, we had a wonderful experience!
