Ate dinner last night at Knoll's for what will be, sadly, our last meal there ever (as they're closing on the 28th). As always, it was wonderful... we started with the mixed appetizer platter, I had a lovely Cordon Bleu, and the missus had the fantastic (to her palatte... its always been to rich for me) Geschnetzeftes kalbfleisch mit pfifferlinge (veal in cream with chantarelles).
Topped it off with some good german brew and a nice chocolate truffle torte in the end and it made for an excellent, if bittersweet, dinner in the house that Knoll built. They'll be missed... and inspired this (bad) quickie ode:
An Ode to Knolls
(with apologies to Joyce Kilmer)
I think that I shall never see...
A schnitzel as lovely as Hilde's.
A schnitzel perfectly breaded and prest...
And popped into my mouth with zest.
Perfectly complimented with brau from Spaten...
kraut, kartopfelsalat, and sauerbraten.
An after-dinner drink of apfelkorn...
And black forest cake so decadent it could be porn.
Yes, only God can make a tree...
But Norbert and Hildegard made this Chowhound happy.
I'll miss 'em...
