German Resturants

Having read a bit of New Orleans history, I find that there was a rather large German imigration in the the late 19th and early 20th centuries. They setteled in what is now part of the "Irish Channel" on up to Napoleon Avenue. Another group formed what was once known as "Little Saxony" which is what we now refer to as "Bywater" area. The question is, why so few, if any, German resturants in New Orleans? We see the results of the other imagrants in resturants. Italian, Chineese,etc. why not the Germans. I can understand possible feelings after two world wars, but it seems enough time has past to not let that interfer. Any opinions/reasons? Thank you.
