Black Forest_1

Black Forest is run by the people who operate El Cerdo, The Steakhouse, The Whisky Bar and Dining In The Dark. It is the latest attempt to carve a longer-lasting restaurant at this address, which once belonged to El Cerdito in 2–9, followed by The Bier Bar only last year.Black Forest_2

Hogging the Spotlight

What hasn’t changed: It’s still all about the hog here. Start with Black Forest’s cold-cuts platter of rilettes, pork liver pate, salami and pig head jelly.

German Recipes
