"Pretty, ugly, cool, hip, boring, gentrified... These are probably the common attributes you hear when you tell non-Frankfurters about your shorter or longer stay in the Main metropolis. It's all true, because Frankfurt is one thing above all: contrasting, diverse.
Locals, on the other hand, feel a close bond with their city, they rave about the unpretentious cosmopolitan mix, not to mention the cultural and artistic offerings. In short: Frankfurt demands and deserves a second and third look when you come from outside.
Around 180 nations live in the city, which makes it unique in terms of size. And as colorfully mixed as the people in the financial metropolis are, so richly are the tables set here. Let's limit ourselves to the next and the next-but-one eateries on your ipartment doorstep in the Bahnhofsviertel and Europaviertel. In culinary terms, a lot has happened in recent years. And – for all its hipness: the Ebbelwoi tradition must not be forgotten in the process."
