Local Restaurant by Hotel Victoria in Nürnberg, Near the Central Train Station and Old Town

I will just have one evening in Nürnberg and wanting a recommendation for a good place to eat dinner to recover from jet lag! I prefer great vegetables , beef or chicken and gluten free options but know I am in Nürnberg, the home of the little sausages and dark bread at places like Schwartz Bakery.

The Bohm’s Herrenkeller restaurant referenced in the RS guide looks great but is focused on pork of course. And sure it is great.

Hoping someone may know of a local and healthy spots. I have had great success in the cafeterias in department stores but normally for lunch.

Thank you,

There’s a Vapiano on the main drag which serves salads, pasta & pizza.

If you go left out the front door of your hotel, and turn left on the main drag (Konigstrasse) there's the Maredo Steakhouse a block left on the right. It's good, and been there for many years.

Just up from there is the BarstuBe, in the basement of the old Rathaus. It's got decent beer and bar food.

If you want to walk further (and if the weathers good I'd recommend it) go all the way to the Pegnitz River (another couple blocks) and cross the bridge. Ahead you'll see the main square. If you go left when you enter the square there's a Italian place called Provenza. It's good.

FYI one of the best bars in town is the one in the Meridian Grand Hotel about a hundred yards from where you're staying, directly across from the Bahnhof.

The walk along the Pegnitz is really nice and a good way to unwind. Enjoy your stay in one of my favorite cities.

If you want to try local cooking I can recommend Weinhaus Steichele, Knorrstrasse 2 (somewhat hidden but not difficult to find). They serve Franconian food interpreted in a more modern ands lighter way. And they own their own wine yards; so you can taste Franconian and Badian wine of a quality that is not easily to find elsewhere in the city. Besides, there is a good Indian restaurant at the beginning of the Königsstrasse near the station and next to the tourist office (which is Königsstrasse 92). A good Italian restaurant is Padelle d'Italia in the Theatergasse, a side street of the Königsstrasse.

BTW, if there are tourist traps in Nuremberg, then it's the two beer halls on Königsstrasse.

Thank you as these sound perfect and the tips to stay away for the 2 tourist traps! I will map out how to walk to the lighter Franconian fare restaurant as it sounds like a real treat. Thank you so much.
