We are looking for German communities in New Jersey and/ or German Restaurants?
We currently live close to the GWB and looking to relocate in the future.
Danke

You might want to see if Clark has a large German population or not. I had friends years ago who belonged to the German/American club there.

Deutscher Club of Clark, NJ (http://deutscherclub.us/index.htm - broken link)

Don't know of any German communities, but I've seen a German American restaurant in Howell on Rt. 9. I haven't tried it though.

The only German restaurant I know is in Andover NJ and it's called the Black Forest Inn. It used to be authentic...now it's frozen Bratwurst.

historically, northwestern nj (northern passaic county, plus all of sussex county) had large german populations. although the german american community has obviously been integrated into the american mainstream for decades by this point, i'd have to think that northwestern nj would be the area most likely to have towns that still have a german "feel". i've certainly seen german-style architecture in some of the towns out that way, especially in sussex county.

along those lines, it's probably worth checking out the black forest inn. it's in the middle of that german area of northwestern nj and is (or was) generally considered to be one of the only decent german restaurants in the ny/nj area.

unfortunately, though, i've never had truly great german food anywhere in the area - nothing that compares to what i ate in germany or even wisconsin.
