A Depression Era Guide To New Orleans

Kolb's German Restaurant
Kolb's, 125 St. Charles St.; proprietor, Conrad Kolb. Hours 7 A.M. to I A.M. for a la carte service; breakfast and luncheon a la carte; table d hote dinner, 5 to 9 P.M., grill 85 cents to $1.25; dining-room, $1 to $1.50. Private dining-rooms and banquet rooms; make reservations for parties.

Kolb's, though serving a great variety of dishes, is the only restaurant in New Orleans that makes a specialty of German food. The interior of the main dining-room at Kolb's is a very interesting reproduction of some of the features of a German tavern, while on one side is a Dutch Room with fireplaces and chimneys.

The food in general is excellent and the surroundings are very pleasant. Among the German dishes the proprietor recommends the following: wiener schnitzel with vegetables, German pot roast with potato pancake, stewed goose with dumplings, pig knuckles with sauerkraut, and home made pork sausage with red cabbage.

At night a Tyrolean orchestra in costume plays wine and beer classics, and both orchestra and guests join in singing old folk songs.
