Thanks to a tip from our previous subletee/landlord, after a cold and wet afternoon of poking around other people's junk we stopped into Restaurant Frarosa on Zionskirchstrasse. There's a set, but varied daily menu and open bottles of wine on the counter for refills. Price? PWYC, for realsies.
Also, it was determined that Aidan was no longer going to escort me on trips to flea markets. ugh. and, sigh.
