The Yellow Tavern is a well-loved institution in New Harmony. It’s a place where you are sure to see friends – old and new- and have your favorite food served up by a quick and friendly staff. I am always debating between my two favorites when I order – so I never give the rest of the menu a glance. Sad but true. That’s why I was surprised to hear my husband order a brat with kraut. Wow, I thought that was just on the menu at a few restaurants on the westside of Evansville. When our food arrived the gentleman to the left of us also ordered the brat with kraut. Rod and our new friend raved about their meal.
Mmmm… I used to love brats when we lived in Cincinnati – which is much like Evansville – German settled with the west-side communities still heavily influenced by their German roots. On my next visit I decided to give the brat a try to see if it was as good as what I remembered from the past. Wow – and yes! I’ve added it to my list of favorites at The Yellow. I hope you do the same! And don’t forget to add another German favorite to your order – a cold beer. It seems that bratwurst, sauerkraut and beer are hard to separate.
