7. East Side Restaurant
- Address: No 131 Dwight St, New Britain, CT 06051-2334
- Phone: +1 860-223-1188
The East Side Restaurant has been continuously family owned and operated on the same site for over 80 years. Steffi and Eddie Walters were the original owners. They established the restaurant, formerly a grocery store, back in the days when trolleys ran on Dwight Street. When they sold the restaurant to Bill and Ruth Bloethe, the Walters moved on to running the successful Dock and Dine in Old Saybrook. The Bloethes ran the restaurant for over 40 years while raising their four children. They expanded the original booth side to include the Heidelberg dining room. They also commissioned the mural in the dining room. Local artist, Kenneth Larson, utilized the grapes and wooden plaques (symbols of Old Heidelberg), in a classical style to transform the dining room into a terrace overlooking the ancient city. Their festive demeanor is captured by the brilliant jewel-like colors and vivid details. Nick, Barbara and Shari Augustino purchased the business before the turn of the century. They represent the first time that two generations have owned and operated the restaurant.
Nick, Barbara and Shari worked alongside the Bloethes to ensure the continuation of the most important of the East Side traditions: hearty, generous German-American fare in a "family friendly" atmosphere. Keeping one foot solidly grounded in tradition, they also instituted some advancement. The renovations in 2004 not only enhanced our appearance, but improved efficiency. Their newest upper level expansion in 2009 consists of "Munich" Room and Englischer Bier Garden. Both of these areas were meticulously detailed after the Hofbrauhaus in Munich, Germany. The Munich Room has a state of the art beer dispensing system, which pours a perfect 32° beer. That goes perfectly with 5° shots from our spectacular Icy Shot Tower. Their granite tables have snow rails to keep your beverages ice cold. They now have a little of the old world and new world Germany combined and as always "No Passport Required!!"

When Hubert arrived in Springfield, Massachusetts in 1981, he accepted a position at the Student Prince and Fort. Under the personal supervision of Rupprecht Scherff, he learned the ins and outs of the American way to run a kitchen without losing his German influence and touch. Understanding the restaurant scene in America was an eye-opening experience that ultimately led him to open his own authentic German/Bavarian restaurant in 2004 with his son, Patrick. Patrick was born in Germany in 1981 and moved to the U.S. at a young age. He spent his summers in Germany with his Oma (Hubert’s mother). Erna Gottschlicht would send Patrick to the baker, butcher, and grocer every morning where he was responsible for the ordering thus allowing him to keep up his fluent German. His family in Germany is extensive and an active part of his life. A lot of that influence is reflected throughout the Munich Haus. Today, the Munich Haus Restaurant embodies the best of the Gottschlichts' Bavarian heritage and knowledge, bringing diners traditional home-cooked meals with the same flavor, quality, and love that his family was known for all those years ago.
