It seems like Wursthaus Schmitz, an extension of the venerable South Street beer hall and restaurant Brauhaus Schmitz, which put real German cooking back in the local foodiesphere, has been threatening to open at Reading Terminal Market for, like, forever. After breezing through a final inspection on Saturday, the new stall opened on the east side of the historic marketplace. Like its Brauhuas flagship, the stand will serve Chef Jeremy Nolan’s wursts, charcuterie, pretzels, salads, and other German specialties. In days to come, a full spread of hot and cold sandwiches, as well as platters will be available, too. The only downside to all of this is, Wursthaus won’t be pouring the Brauhaus’s incredible selection of German beers.
Wursthaus Schmitz, 51 North 12th Street, (215) 922-4287
