Restaurants in Bavaria

In the busy basement enoteca, decidedly less pricey and formal than the fine-dining room upstairs, dark walnut tables are full of hip young locals; it’s like being back in the 21st century.

Bavaria is the heartland of simple, rib-sticking dishes heavy on the würstel, potatoes, and sauerkraut—accompanied, of course, by liter-size mugs of beer—and there's no better place to indulge in the cholesterol fest than alongside local residents in the mayor's basement.
