Have you had enough of Maultaschen? Then grab a pizza for a change. That is one of those perfect pizzas that far extend beyond the edge of the plate. True Italy lovers will even pass over the yummy pizzas and go for vitello tonnato, saltimbocca, crostini or scallopine. Lovely! Punto Fisso is more than a pizzeria, it's a trendy meeting spot for the young and old, for bobos and the creative class, for students and the alternative, for the babbler and taciturn - and it has been for 16 years now. The ristorante is authentic, a trattoria that also works as a pub. In summer time it's simply wonderful to sit in the garden watching people and eating. You can talk about anything here, the funny, the melancholic, the philosophical and the banal. And nowhere does a glass of wine taste better than here.
What should a gourmet absolutely eat in Stuttgart? Spend a night in the Fässle and eat as much as he can. Eva and Rudolf Schmölz put Haute Cuisine onto the tables of their restaurant. The owner and chef is dedicated to Swabian cuisine - with a French touch. Put together your menu from different vegetable, fish and meat choices, and order one of two daily menus, which guarantees the perfect combination for your palate. You could start the fish menu, for example, with a surprise from the kitchen and then look forward to salmon tartar with potato-leek dumplings, rucola and oranges. After that you can have sea bass fillet with wild garlic gnocci and as a dessert raspberry mousse with vanilla ice cream. While you feast, Eva Schmölz keeps the service staff on their toes. Whether you eat on the wonderful terrace or in the rustic, wood-panelled lounge room - a friendly service and diligent advice are part of the standard.
Cornelia and Gert Habener, the owners of the épicerie fine, love France; so much so that they apparently had a hard time coming to terms with Swabian cooking. So they started to import treats and ingredients from France. What they make from it? Croissants, cheese platters, ratatouille or entrecôte. The lunch menus for about 10 euros are particularly popular, and all of Stuttgart comes here to celebrate French cuisine. Who's surprised? The cuisine is light but excellent, and the carefully chosen glass of wine is a blessing. The shop is located in a former bakery, which was renovated and radiates in its renewed old charm. The guests cannot help but enjoy life and devote themselves to the most beautiful things in life: eating, drinking, music, talking, laughter, art - in short, everything that sweetens one's life. Come for the petit déjeuner, than you'll know exactly what we mean: The épicerie fine is a piece of Paris in the middle of Stuttgart.
