Traditional German fare at The Rathskeller in Indianapolis, Indiana

On a trip through Indianapolis, we stopped at The Rathskeller which is tucked away inside of the historic19th century Athenaeum. The restaurant has long been a staple in Indianapolis and has served German fare since 1894.

Rathskeller is German for Council's Cellar. Indianapolis' Rathskeller is in the "cellar" yielding to a warm and cozy design. The restaurant has several rooms, a biergarten area and special events rooms.

Of course, I was there for food! A pretzel with pub cheese and spicy mustard was provided with the meal. It was delicious!

I have been on a soup kick this year. Not sure why but it has still been in high gear during the summer despite the heat. I had the Linsen Eintopf with lentil, smoked sausage, ham, potatoes and veggies. It was delicious! The soup is very filling and works well with a salad.
