Resto 11 Ristorante Gallo Nero, Frankfurt

In Frankfurt for the weekend we were ravenous after leaving the train and in no mood to wander far to find some food so the Black Chicken was chosen purely for its proximity to the hotel.

Set off Frankfurt’s main shopping street it was a good spot to dine on the terrace and we joined a smattering of locals roadside. The menu is straight down the line Italian and I went for a caprese salad followed by a seafood spaghetti. The salad was good – a shitload of sweet tomatoes and a puddingy burrata with lots of chopped basil. The pasta was also a generous portion of various creatures of the sea in a bed of freshly made pasta. The crême brulée I mistakenly ordered was, frankly, crap and could have come from the freezer in Iceland. Which was a shame as everything else was pretty good, including a juicy Montepulciano and a genial host who happily switched between German, Italian and English without even having to think.
