One last picture on Thursday evening

I bought a Metro card good for seven days worth of subway rides when I got into town Sunday, and I’m determined to get my money’s worth. I decided to explore a little more after dinner. A quick ride from 42nd and Times Square to 59th brought me to Columbus Circle.

Dinner at the “wurst” restaurant in town

Ever since I read about this place in the New York issue of Gourmet Magazine (in 2004!) I’ve wanted to go to Hallo Berlin. The restaurant is located on 10th Avenue, between 44th and 45th, so it’s just far enough from the Times Square area to feel like you’re in a residential part of the city.

45th street between 9th and 10th Avenues. I kept expecting the Cosby family to spill out of one of the brownstones.

The restaurant’s exterior awning proudly proclaims “Germany.”

It’s always time for sausage and beer at Hallo Berlin.

I had the two wurst plate, which came with sauerkraut, red cabbage and spaetzle. Plus cabbage and potato soup to start. I choose bratwurst and knockwurst.

It was delicious!
