Wunderbar!
    1132 Lee St., Covington
    Wunderbar! is one of those restaurants that’s considered a “hidden gem.” The authentic German-inspired menu features housemade wursts with locally sourced meats, like the restaurant’s super popular currywurst — a peculiar invention of post-World War II Germany. It’s a spiced sausage served with a ketchup-Worcestershire-curry sauce. The rotating sausage menu is written on a blackboard behind the bar, but a must-try is the giant pretzel, a gigantic, plate-sized pretzel that easily complements any of the bar’s refreshing beers.

11. Mita’s Restaurant and Bar
    501 Race St., Downtown
    ”Love love this restaurant. To start with, it has really nice ambiance and perfect for a date night. The food is tapas style, and the portion isn't too small, so I suggest 3-4 is enough for 2 people. We have tried lots of seafood ones, they are all really good!” — Mia W.

In the summer, the indoor market expands outside and welcomes musicians, performers and special events to the mix." — Paula Froelich for Newsweek
