Dear Stammtisch Friends
I hope you are all well and have had time to enjoy the lovely weather in the past week. It’s been a while since we had a Stammtisch and I’ve been recommended a great venue for our next one.
The date is Monday, 18 June and we’ll meet in the Marina Vista in Sunderland from 6.30pm onwards. Our German menu includes as a starter Geflügelpastete mit Champignons (chicken pate with mushrooms), the main course Spanferkel mit Semmelknödel and Blaukraut (roast pig with dumplings and cabbage) or Gedünstete Rahmrindschnitzel mit Bratkartoffeln und Gurkensalat (Beef Schnitzel with roast potatoes and cucumber salad) and as a dessert Pflaumenparfait mit Likör und Schlagsahne (plum parfait with liqueur and whipped cream). And you have also a choice of the regular menu if you don’t fancy German food – www.marina-vista.co.uk
Kostas, the owner, has a special relationship to Germany as he lived in Regensburg for nine years and his family is still there. You couldn’t get more international than Kostas, who is a Greek national, grew up in Germany, has a Chinese wife and runs and Italian restaurant in England. If anybody can beat this one, let us know!!!
As usual, please let me know if you’re coming so that we can reserve enough seats for our Stammtisch group.
I wish you all a very enjoyable and sunny Jubilee Bank Holiday weekend and look forward to seeing you on 18 June!
