YUMMM... Bavarian cuisine is one of my very favorites and I have been hearing SO much buzz around the new "WURST" restaurant that opened on June 15th in the old WildWood location next to Earls at 2437 4th Street SW. WURST is off to a running start with an incredible menu and unbelievably good dishes. The upstairs "Restaurant & Bier Garten" is really pretty with light wood accents, cuckoo clocks and big trees strung with white lights. The basement is a traditional Bavarian beer hall with long wooden benches and a stein locker! You can tell from the menu and ambiance WURST has truly put a lot of time and effort into their cuisine and concept. James and I dined her on Monday for lunch and felt as though we were in Germany again... With even better food somehow... Here is what we dined on... *FOODGASM*

Who can turn down a "pickle for a buck" on the side menu? Certainly not this bird... Pickles make me happy and this obese sucker was no exception ;)

James scoped these $6 potato dumplings with pan gravy and crumbled bacon on the side menu and we had them for an appetizer. We both love dumplings- especially German ones! These were extremely dense and stuffed with a bit of pork just like we had in Czech... Good but super filling. You get a lot of bang for your buck here.

WURST has an oyster bar and an impressive selection of seafood which is displayed on ice at the bar. We had two West Coast mussels for $3.25 each and the homemade horseradish & hot sauce was awesome with these oysters! I wish we could have had an entire dozen to ourselves. There is also a seafood tower that James and I want to sink our teeth into one day.. Yummm...

BEST. SANDWICH. OF. MY. LIFE. HANDS DOWN!!! WOW!!!! James-that lucky brat- ordered the "Halibut Dagwood" sandwich for only $15. Fish & chips in a sandwich? It sounded so unique we had to try it out. The sourdough bread was PERFECTLY toasted with the right amount of butter.. There was grated Granny Smith apple slaw on one side and a house made sweet tartar sauce that was a-mazing.. I couldn't believe the huge amount of flaky, white perfect fish in this sandwich. YOU MUST DINE HERE! The service was great and when debating between salad and fries our waitress suggested James to get the fries which were served with a homemade chipolte Ketchup. DELICIOUS!

I was craving seafood and had the "Fourth Street Cobb" for $19 that had poached lobster, butter lettuce & watercress, avocado, goat cheese, cucumbers, smoked bison & creme fraiche dressing. I could not get over how much lobster was in this salad.. It had to be half of a lobster. It looked like half of the claws and half the tail and they were poached to perfection. Avocado and lobster should be together forever.
I can't wait to try out WURST again and have a beer in their beer hall on the weekend one time. I really want to try their schnitzel, seafood tower and much more! DINE HERE! You will not be disappointed... :D
