restaurants in Heidelberg, Germany?

Thanks for confirming both the name and my taste buds :) I was there with a friend and we had a really cozy evening. We were able to while away the evening without being pressured out the door. We had a spinach tarte flambe (they have lots of vegetarian options), a spætzle dish with local mushrooms and turkey breast then another tarte flambe for dessert. I was big on the tarte flambe since it had been years since I had eaten it and really missed it. Actually I love spætzle too - but both are hard to find in Denmark. I must admit I ate WAY too much that weekend - but have absolutely NO regrets.

restaurants in Heidelberg, Germany?

There is a restaurant right near (and on the same side of the street) as Hotel Ritter St. Georg which specializes in flammekuchen (the Alsatian pizza) which is TOTALLY cosy. It has the arched, gothic style celings, an open woodfire oven and long tables along the wall which encourage "communal" eating of smaller parties. I'll research the name and post it again.

Also, Nepomuk is STILL warmly recommended.

I second the Nepomuk recommendation. I went there Saturday night and had a LOVELY dinner. The menu is much more inspired than Weisserbock or Schwarz, IMHO. Their website needs some attention, but as long as they focus on the food - having an out-dated website is OK with me.

Authentic recipes/ideas for Denmark?

Saveur's website has really good & authentic recipes for various types of pickled herring. My Danish husband gave his stamp of approval.

I like to make my own liver pate with roasted chanterelles when they're in season...

Berlin: HELP!!!

Try Milagro - here's a page with a review: http://goodfoodinberlin.de/german-foo...

There is also a wine bar on Potsdammer Platz that could accommodate probably 40 people. The food is great. It's right across from the Ritz-Carlton in the Sony Center complex. The facade is from the old Great Tea Room. Lots of ambiance. It's called the Kaisersaal (http://www.kaisersaal-berlin.de). Cafe Josty, on the Platz as well, is good and at a lower price point. Not sure if they have a private room, though. http://www.josty-berlin.de/Restaurant

Lentil Salad with Goat Cheese Crostini

As written, I think the recipe is a bit boring. The upside is that I got some inspiration and made the following changes: sub frisee for mixed baby greens of mustard, beet, arugula and spinach; used french lentils; added olive tapenade under the goat cheese before roasting; and added artichoke bottoms to the salad.

Secondly, a "true" print feature would be convenient.
