Best Pounded Meat

Feierabend

Prediction: Years from now, when the sea monkey of a neighborhood known as South Lake Union knows a very low vacancy rate and has seen its second round of ill-conceived wine bars come and go, Feierabend, with its faithful, steady homage to Deutsch fare, will still be there. And credit will go in large part to the schnitzel—or more accurately, the Wiener schnitzel vom Schwein, since Feierabend uses pork instead of veal: Pork loin pounded into a cutlet, then breaded and fried, comes with cabbage and French fries. It's enough for two people, and costs only $14. Feierabend set up shop when the area was a no-man's-land after 5 p.m., and has flourished as it held to a menu devotedly German, meat- and sausage-heavy. Let it be known that in this insta-hood, the schnitzel came first.—Maggie Savarino
