Craving schnitzel? Head to this Bosnian/German dining room for expertly fried renditions of this Eastern European favorite—we like the veal versions with a fried egg on top or stuffed with spicy peppers and feta. The sleeper hit is the spaetzle, a marvelous vehicle for veal-and-mushroom stew or sautéed onions and melty cheese. Also good: Bosnia burger; ćevapčići (sausages); crepes with rose-hip jam and whipped cream.
