I was on my own for dinner tonight, so I decided to try the only German restaurant in town, Schwaben House.
Annette Heilmann-Ferro and Karl Heilmann, a brother and sister team, opened Schwaben House a year ago in February of 2009. It’s located on Pelham Road in what used to be the Kabob House.
Schwabia is a region of Southern Germany that includes Bavaria. As its name implies, the restaurant features cuisine from this area.
So many German restaurants have rich wood finishes and paneling for that “Bavarian” feel. That’s just not the case here. The walls are light with a aqua green wainscot. There are bits of Bavarian decor, but these don’t dominate the place.
