Despite the proximity of Germany and Italy, the countries’ two cuisines rarely appear on the same menu. But Carroll Gardens’ Buschenshank bucks custom and offers pizza alongside bockwurst, bratwurst, and weisswurst. The pizza side of the operation comes from a small in-house outpost of South Brooklyn Pizza (whose owner is behind this place), which offers a flavorful, though dry, white pizza with apples and ham, along with a few more traditional pizza offerings. The standouts of the menu are the German side dishes like braised red cabbage and warm sauerkraut. Unfortunately, some German classics like spaetzle are absent from the menu and other dishes, like an oxtail stew with a large potato dumpling, lack flavor. The dark candlelit dining room, filled with long varnished wood picnic tables, is barely separated from a lively bar -- which like any proper German establishment, serves a selection of over 30 beers.Recommended Dishes
