  "The Black Forest Inn in Stanhope is the only restaurant in the area  that offers truly authentic German cooking. While many people think of German cuisine as simply wursts, kraut, beer and heavy fare, Germany is situated at the crossroads of Europe and is influenced by the cuisines of all its neighbors. Continental cooking originated in Germany, and its foods reflect French, Italian and eastern European influences."
