Cafe Steinhof Reminds Harold Dieterle of his Grandmother

New, 2 comments

New York City is home to a lot of restaurants, more than any rational human being can ever hope to visit. Among that number are hidden gems the majority of New Yorkers just aren't unearthing. To help guide us to these potential discoveries, we've enlisted some of our city's many food luminaries to share with us their under the radar recommendations for Dining Confidential.

In today's Dining Confidential, Harold Dieterle of Perilla and Kin Shop praises Cafe Steinhof for their delicious home style cooking, and their cheap drinks:

“I really like Cafe Steinhof in Park Slope because the food reminds me of the Austro-German dishes my grandmother used to make. I tend to go at lunch and order the same thing: schnitzel with a potato-cucumber salad. I then negotiate with my server for a side of spaetzle, which they really only serve at dinner. This is the only restaurant I know of that first sautes garlic in the pan before adding the spaetzle — exactly how my grandfather asked for it. The gin and tonics are also way too cheap and unusually generous.”
