Oktoberfest, Tallahassee

Onlytraveltoeat | Oct 8, 2008 05:04 PM

We ate dinner last night at Nino's on Apalachee Parkway for the first time in many months.

The Cheese Board (from the appetizer menu) was excellent and an unexpected gem for this area.

My wife had the evening special, Chicken Cordon Bleu. It was cooked perfectly, crisp on the outside and moist/tender inside. The soup of the day was a white pumpkin/ham hock blend of various vegetables ( I almost didn't order because of the ham hock label, I'm not a fan) turned out to be very good. Sort of a hearty vegetable stew properly spiced.

I had the Weiner Schnitzel with spatzle and red cabbage. I love good veal and it very difficult to find in this country. Chef Pascal's version is exceptional. The meat itself was tender, perfectly done and worth a return visit. Chef and his wife have done a great job since taking over.

They are having their annual Oktoberfest this Sunday, October 12 from 1:00 - 5:00. Very informal get-together with Becks, Americal Red Ale, Goldschlager, Jagermeister, Knockwurst, Bratwurst, goulash, potato salad, etc with Oompah band, and special events for the children.

A little out of the way, but well worth the short drive.
