Jager Haus German Bistro & Coffee Shop Restaurant Review

: The German influence on Louisiana cooking is unmistakable, but there are surprisingly few authentic German restaurants in town. However, you’ll find the real deal at Jäger Haus. Wiener schnitzel is thin, greaseless and crisp. Potato pancakes are bracingly flavored with garlic. One of the house specialties is spätzle, the tiny German dumplings that can accompany any number of main dishes. They meet their best match next to the Hungarian goulash, where they help sop up the deep, dark, paprika-spiced sauce that smothers roughly hewn chunks of beef. Coq au vin shows the menu’s international influence. Jäger Haus does justice to the European approach to coffee, serving it in nice porcelain cups, while Paulaner Hefeweizen, a wheat beer from Munich available on tap, arrives in proper stemmed glasses. The wine list includes only a few Rieslings. For dessert, there’s German chocolate cake, but as that's actually an American invention, a better choice is the mixed berries with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce. It’s a casual place with a small bar up front and about ten tables dispersed through two rooms.
