27 April, Wednesday
Experience the city as a German. Visit Manhattan’s Upper East Side, Yorkville where many Germans frequented. We’ll be dining at the Heidelberg Restaurant for lunch, then visit other areas of Manhattan south of the restaurant as we make our way back to Bryant Park. Folks can stay with the group or explore on their own.
When making your bus reservation with Shafer Bus Tours (607-797-2006), state that you are with the German Club – Susanna and Heidi. (Shafer will try and get us seated together, but they cannot guarantee it.) Lunch reservations will be taken at the Ratskeller, where there will be a sign-up sheet.
Heidelberg Restaurant – The Heidelberg is one of the oldest family-run German restaurants in the United States, dating back over one hundred years to a time when Yorkville was a bustling German neighborhood. Back then, customers left happy and returned frequently. Today, Heidelberg retains the same recipes and atmosphere as it had in the past. The bar and interior remain frozen in time, capturing the magic of the golden age of Germantown, and the menu offers treasured old world favorites along with savory new dishes.
