Messer-goers couldn’t get enough of their favourite German dishes, so it only made sense for the Fitzroy establishment to re-brand to a Berlin diner vibe. Keeping its trendy European plates on the menu, Messer is now the ideal German diner with a modern twist.
From Messer’s famous flatbread, house-made pickles, mountains of Sauerkraut and of course, pretzels, the fresh new venue is your one-stop shop when you’re craving some of that traditional German fare. Executive Chef Ashley Davis is ready to blow your mind with classics like the wood-fired flatbreads, Wurst and Spätzle, and more progressive dishes like smoked trout sandwich and rotisserie pork chops.
If you’re feeling really hungry, you can set yourself up for the Berliner Bottomless Brunch in the 45-seat dining room on Saturdays. Starting at $55.00 per person, you can enjoy mighty pork schnitzels, Duckwurst hot dogs and Käsespätzle (basically German mac n’ cheese) while sipping on Steins of Hefeweizen beer, Bloody Marys or Berlin-style Mimosas.
With a Wurst in one hand and a refreshing German beer in the other, we really can’t think of a better way to spend an evening on Gertrude Street.
