The Berghoff Chicago Restaurant Review:
The Berghoff restaurant is definitely one of Chicago’s most notable landmarks, since the restaurant is housed in one of the original buildings that was constructed in the Loop after the Great Chicago Fire. Besides the restaurant, the Berghoff restaurant even has a bar that features the finest selection of drinks and it even offers bar specials.
The Berghoff Chicago restaurant offers an interesting combination of German and American specialties. The menu for lunch and dinner are different where lunch also includes sandwiches while dinner menu does not.
Appetizers and salads are practically same for both of them and Alastian onion and apple soup, roasted mushroom sachette and applewood bacon wrapped shrimp are a good choice. Mini brats and knockwurst is a typical German recipe that includes two mini sausages with sauerkraut and is served with buns, Dusseldorf mustard and German potato salad.
At the Berghoff restaurant, a great option as a salad is Panko crusted goat cheese salad, which is a combination of goat cheese medallions sprinkled with Panko herbs and mixed with greens, seasonal vegetables and balsamic reduction. Berghoff house salad is also another specialty that has assorted field greens, grated funnel and asparagus tossed in citrus vinaigrette.
The main entrees feature some of the most authentic German specialties such as wiener schnitzel where German veal cutlet with asparagus and pepper salad is served with Berghoff chips. Sauerbraten is also another popular choice where roasted beef sirloin is prepared in a sumptuous sweet and sour gravy and served with assorted vegetables and whipped potatoes. Jagerschnitzel that offers pork cutlets sautéed with mushrooms, bacon and Jagermeister infused sauce is served with caramelized root vegetables and spaetzles.
At the Berghoff restaurant, if you don’t want to order an authentic German delicacy, you can even choose chicken pot pie, game sausage plate, seared salmon and grilled hanger steak. The lunch menu also includes sandwiches such as the delicious Berghoff burger, roast beef sandwich and halibut sandwich.
There is even a choice of lunch and dinner specials and some of the popular options include Berghoff beer battered cod, stuffed sole, famous Berghoff corn beef and cabbage and traditional lamb stew. However, no meal at the Berghoff Chicago restaurant is complete with relishing one of its sumptuous deserts such as the relishing apple strudel, German chocolate cake or root beer float.
