Today is What’s-his-name’s birthday and we went to lunch at the most absolutely charming German restaurant just a couple of blocks from his apartment. Joseph Roth Diele. It seems to be an artist and local worker hang out and every time I’ve been there the place is totally and completely packed by 12:10 but empty at 11:50, so we went a bit early.

I had the hard-roll dumpling with mushroom sauce. Semmelknodel. Semmels are hard rolls. and he had fried cheese and spätzle. Both outstanding.

Plus a lunch time beer. Getting wild here.

There were people waiting for a table when we left.

Side note. Every time I type semmel it autocorrects to Memmel which was my mother’s family name.

Clean plate club.
