DH and I ate at the Alpenhorn Gasthaus on Hwy. 100 east of Hermann (not very far, perhaps a mile) on Sat. night for our anniversary. They have a 4-course prix-fixe dinner menu for $50 per with one seating at 7:00 p.m. Menu changes seasonally of course, but ours had an appetizer of a jalapeno pepper stuffed with Havarti cheese, grilled with a Norton reduction; a seasonal salad of chopped kale and other veggies with a cinnamon vinaigrette dressing (sounds weird, but it worked), and the two offerings for entrees were pork tenderloin and salmon. I had the pork, and DH had the salmon. I liked the salmon better and will get next time as it was not fishy at all and served with an orange (very light) beurre blanc sauce. Desserts were bread pudding with whiskey sauce (DH) and I had a sublime dark chocolate tart with a strawberry (or raspberry?) coulis. DH had espresso afterward and it was outstanding as well. Hubby opted for locally-made German beers with his meal (Tin Mill Brewing), and I took advantage of the four-wine flight pairing with each course, for an additional $25. Oh yeah, they had homemade herbed rolls that were quite delicious, too. The proprietor, Adrian, is from Switzerland. It is also a B&B. I was feeling so good when I left there that I forgot my jacket, but Adrian has already mailed it back to me. Highly highly recommend this place for the quiet charming country ambiance and hospitality with a slightly European feel, and the exquisitely delicious food.
