Old Europe in Glover Park


Recommended Posts

How's the food and drink in this joint? It certainly looks intriguing from the outside. I'm a big fan of German cuisine, and Washingtonian says it's the oldest German restaurant in the city. Their asparagus festival is going on right now.

Love,

I like Old Europe for what it is - sort of a fusty old Bavarian throwback to the 1970s. I've gone to their asparagus festival a couple of times in recent years, and have always enjoyed it (I definitely recommend getting one of the asparagus dishes). The last time I was there, they had a wonderful older woman playing the piano and singing - that she happened to be blind did not hinder her from shamelessly belting out her music. And the time before that there was a strolling violinist who was actively (and hilariously) angering the waitresses with his vocal outbursts right when they happened to walk by him.

This is definitely not a hip crowd, but would be a wonderful place to take an older parent for their birthday.

Cheers,

Rocks.

Just had lunch at Old Europe for their Oktoberfest celebration. They have a fantastic Oktoberfest Bock which I enjoyed with their Wurst platter (weiss, brat and bauern wurst), potato pankcakes and superb sauerkraut. a bargin at $10.95!
