THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Grawemeyer's Restaurant Review

: Tucked in between galleries in the South Main Arts District, Grawemeyer’s is a hip spot for dinner after an afternoon perusing art shows. Vintage tiled floors and a polished wood bar lend the place an old-world ambience. On most afternoons and evenings, a piano player croons softly into a microphone as diners sip wine and nosh on German-inspired items such as bratwurst with sauerkraut and mashed potatoes or the Gruyère spätzle (cheese noodle casserole). Vegetarians may substitute tofu, chickpeas or black beans for meat in several dishes. Brunch is served daily and includes Southern classics like pecan pancakes and a New Orleans-inspired egg and black bean burger scramble. The wine list is small but selections are decent. Fresh layer cakes are available for dessert. But don’t miss the German Chocolate Cake cocktail for a unique spin on after-dinner drinks.
