I have been getting a lot of requests over Facebook, of where to take the family out to dinner for those special holidays coming up…or at any time really. So, I decided to stop by the Maredo Steakhouse in the center of Stuttgart, on the Lange Street cornering Kronprinzstreet. I sat down to talk with the Manager Mr. Uwe Mack and enquired about their opening hours during the Christmas and New Year’s season. He replied that they only really close the place up for Christmas Eve to make sure the employees get to spend the 24th of December with their families. December 25th (Christmas Day) and the 26th (Boxing Day) they are open. That goes for New Year’s as well. Many of the family-owned businesses are usually closed over the holidays.
Since we were visiting in the Stuttgart area, opportunity demanded a proper Swabian dinner. The Schwoabentöpfle was perfect for that occasion. Located on the outer skirts of Stuttgart, right by the public pool and soccer field, the restaurant offers a nice relaxing flair.
I am a huge sushi fan, so I did not hesitate when I was offered the chance to check out a new, local place.
Located inside the Schwabengalerie in Vaihingen, the restaurant is easily reachable by public transport, and there is lots of parking available. There are several large public parking garages right in the area. Mikomi sits right in the little courtyard, so you also have the option of dining outside.
For someone like me who has lived in the Stuttgart area for over 20 years it is possible to miss out on some great local restaurants.
Last Sunday, my family and I visited a restaurant that we’ve always known about, driven passed, but never stopped to have a meal. Big mistake! The “Zum Brückle” is one of those overlooked treasures located on a side street in the town of Stuttgart Plieningen, near Kelley Barracks.
We tested Stuttgarts steak restaurants for you. The same question keeps popping up on the Facebook pages and groups, “Where do they serve great steaks?” We checked out 3 restaurants and really would like to recommend you one of them.
