HIMMEL'S REST – Chicago 9/2014

HIMMEL’S – 2251 W Lawrence Ave., Chicago, IL 60625, Ravenswood, (773) 784-8777, himmelschicago.com

Q-Tips say: Was ok- Had the Champignon Rahm Schnitzel — Pork tenderloin medallions seared and sautéed in butter and finished in a shallot mushroom cream sauce – Served with Spätzle and red cabbage. It was a Pizza place at one time and now is a Bavarian/German Rest that also serves Italian food. A small restaurant that had no one except us for the first hour or so. Asked about the Bavarian Pork Shank that is listed on the door menu and inside menu says only on weekend. Waiter said the Pork Shank is served only on weekends. So we decided on the Rahm Schnitzel for our entree. PARKING TIP: The Q’s did not know that if you park across the street – Parking is Free but if you park in front of the restaurant you have to pay- Free is better. Had the Rahm Schnitzel in other German Restaurants and it was just as tasty and more meat and less Spaetzle. If you like German/Bavarian/Italian food try Himmel’s. For good German food try any of the other German Restaurants that are not far from here.
