Resturant you have to try...

Hausgarten Edelweiss in Bartlett will have you yearning to go back, not only for the scrumptious fresh food, but a chance to visit with the interesting and entertaining owners, Edith and HJ Dalecki. Listen careful to HJ, as he still has a strong German accent, and you don't want to miss what he has to say. My daughter did a bio in Mrs. Bassett's class on Edith, and her story will bring World War Two to life, making a personal connection during a time of horror and sorrow. Though she is busy cooking in the open centrally located kitchen, maybe Edith will get a chance to swing by and say hello.

By the way, try number two on the menu. I have never cared for mushrooms, but her sauce over homemade noodles left me wondering why.

They are open from 4:00-9:00pm Thursday-Saturday. Please visit and tell them Donna sent you.


On a side note, we all know good help is hard to find. They are currently looking for experienced wait staff. I hope they find someone, as I would love for them to open for more hours!
