The Winstub, literally “wine lounge”, recreates the Alsatian way of life.
Originally, it was a room open to the public where wine growers could sell off the surplus of their production.
Nowadays, the Winstub is a typical Alsatian restaurant, thanks to its “country” and “pub” spirit.
The wine is here served in carafe accompanied by simple small dishes.
You can find the flavours of the past in dishes such as :
- the Choucroute (or Sauerkraut): sliced fermented cabbage and potatoes served with a selection of salted and smoked meats,
- the “Baeckaoffa”: a hotpot of potatoes garnished with a selection of meats marinated in white wine, cooked in a terrine dish,
- the “ Lawerknepfla” : liver quenelles
- the knuckle of ham on Choucroute...
You eat here shoulder to shoulder on wooden tables, often covered with tablecloths with red check.
The usual customers often stay on at a “Stammtisch” (habitués’ table) to “try to solve the world’s problems”.
