The much anticipated weisser spargel (white asparagus) is BACK and we couldn't be more excited to share it with you.

For those of you familiar with our menu, it comes as no surprise that Spargel is a staple in our house throughout the month of May. Each year we celebrate Spargelzeit (white asparagus time) by creating a special menu dedicated to this gorgeously delicate (and decadent) ingredient!

Spargel of course is how you say 'asparagus' in German, and especially the white variety is a sought after item throughout Europe. The worlds' populuation of spargel i...
