A friend of mine had lunch at Stovetrotters a few weeks ago and gave it rave reviews so I tried it for lunch recently.
This is a small place just outside the Village on Sweeten Creek Road at the intersection of Fairview Rd.
It has a very unique set up inside with an L-shaped bar-type seating that overlooks the cooking area and then about 6-8 other tables, so not a very large place. Very simple but pleasing decor.
I was really impressed by the lunch menu and found myself with the dilemma of wanting to try and couple of the things....one of the day's specials offered spaetzle as a side and I've been known to order an entree just to get the spaetzle. Then there was the mushroom strudel.....I finally settled on a chicken stew over "sexy" mashed potatoes. It was perfect dish for a cold day. Hearty and rich without being heavy. It came with a biscuit and I normally don't like biscuits but decided to take a bite....yummmm incredibly buttery yet light and airy...almost like a "croissantiscuit".
For a non-alcoholic beverage and the stew (including tax) it was just over $10 so not bad.
They seem to do some special meals and other interesting events. I'll be back for dinner!
