Kurt's Bistro Restaurant Review

: Kurt Eisele, his Swiss-born wife Vreny, and son Alexander offer a cuisine that is rarely seen in Atlanta. Eisele is from Stuttgart, so the Swabian approach to dishes rules: look for a large ravioli-type dish called Maultaschen, which may not be on the menu but appears as a special. Share an order as a first course or savor a plateful on a cold day. We also like the curry wurst, a Berlin street food tradition that makes a good starter, and it’s sharable as well. Choose from one to three sausages to enjoy with curry-accented ketchup and braised sauerkraut. From Switzerland comes a fondue presentation (minimum two persons). While there are a raft of steaks, it seems silly to come all the way out here for anything other than traditional fare. Sauerbraten shows an unusual spin, served with spätzle rather than potato dumpling; a Swabian platter with three meats will give you plenty to take home. For dessert, it's strudel, really good strudel. The wine collection ranges widely, but this is one place you can get a decent Riesling at a reasonable price. The Von Buhl and Argyle (Oregon) are just two examples by the glass. Good Burgundy and Bordeaux, and wines from California, are found on a serious reserve list. And ooh la la, the beers!
