Is there such a thing as casual gourmet? There is now! With a menu that changes daily and a very small restaurant we felt like we won the lottery when we were able to walk in and get two seats at the bar. Turns out we had more fun at the bar as they have an open kitchen and we could watch the chefs in action. Casual atmosphere. Not fancy and stuffy. Delicious and creative cuisine. Friendly staff. Go early and cross your fingers, or call for a reservation. Worth it!

A few days before our trip I watched a British chef prepare stinging nettle pesto. It was a surprise to find it on the first course menu here. Partnered with fresh ricotta, it was delicious. Entrees of steak and scallops with perfectly prepared and well accompanied. Wines by the glass were pricey and the pour miserly. The waitress worked hard to upsell us, another unpleasant aspect. The dining room is spare and the chef, cooking staff are on view. There's bar seating for singles. Although the menu offers a very good range of tempting options we won't return because of the value and service issues.

Special restaurant with limited seating but phenomenal high quality good & excellent wine. Open kitchen concept with local flavors!

We decided to try Nudel because of the many positive reviews, and the recommendation of our innkeeper. While the experience was fine, it was really no where close to some of the exceptional reviews I've read. Starting with the positives, service was friendly and attentive. The small plate portion of pasta we started with was tasty and well prepared. For the main course we had scallops which were perfectly cooked. A sign of an exceptional restaurant is when the sauces add to the culinary experience of a particular dish. In this case the sauce that accompanied the scallops was non-exceptional. Much less than exceptional was a starter of Halibut that reminded me of average Gifilte Fish and Fried Chicken that was very average and had much too much heavily fried breading. Overall, the meal was OK, but way short of exceptional. I wouldn't not recommend the place, just make sure your expectations are set at the right level.

The cuisine was a tasty combination of items one might not think to put together but the results were remarkable.
