David Forchemer opened Andreas Keller Restaurant in 1989 out of a love for the Bavarian culture, food and people he had known so well. Together with his daughters, Heidi and Christina, he operated the restaurant until his retirement in 1995, when Heidi became the owner and manager. Together with her son Maximillian “Andreas,” daughter Alexandra, and Chef Anita Hamilton (from Hessen, Germany), Andreas Keller has become world famous and in 2014 celebrated 25 years of excellence.
The Andreas Keller (“Andreas Cellar”) was recently remodeled and the back dining room was turned into a Bavarian-style barn, called the “Haflinger Stüberl,” named for the breed of horses that pull the restaurant’s wagon in the local parades. The Haflinger horse is a breed originating in the Austrian alps, and visitors can dine in cozy “stalls," see photos of the horses, authentic bridles and other rustic decor. The warmth of wood, hand-painted murals and lovely wrought-iron details, combined with delicious Bavarian specialties, are certain to create unforgettable memories. The authentic music offered most nights completes the feeling of having spent an evening in a lively Gasthaus in old Bavaria, minus the jet lag!
