Munich - Spaten or Pschorr or Zum Alten Markt and other ?s...

fress | Jan 5, 2014 06:51 PM

My wife and our two daughters will be in Munich for the first time for three days in March staying at the Hotel Louis by the Viktualienmarkt. I've been doing a little research here and around the web, but would very much appreciate some additional guidance on the following questions:

We're going to the opera on our first night and would like to eat afterwards. Is Spaten (upstairs) a good choice?

If we do go to Spaten, is Der Pschorr too similar for another dinner? Are we better off trying Zum Alten Markt? The online menu at ZAM seems a bit lighter than Spaten and Pschorr...

I like the idea of at least one meal that is not heavy German fare since we will be spending the next week skiing in Austria, where we will be eating plenty of schnitzel, tafelspitz, and strudel...Brenner seems to get some love here. Is that a good choice or is there another fish/Italian restaurant that you would recommend instead?

Any views on Geisels Werneckhof, which recently was featured in the NYT? The food certainly sounds different from (and more expensive than) the run of the Munich mill, but I'm concerned that it may be a little fussy and molecular...

And finally, if there's anything else we should know - like the best sausage stand or konditorei in town, please share! Thanks in advance for your help. I promise to report back...
