At the foot of the stone bridge across the Main River in the center of the city sits Alte Mainmühle, a renovated mill with two large terraces jutting out over the water. It's a perfect place to sip Franconian wines on a summer day, looking out at the river, the vineyards, and the massive Marienberg Fortress across the way. The aroma of sourdough bread baking in the restaurant's own wood-fired oven greets arrivals to the cozy dining rooms. The menu features familiar regional specialties, many made from ancient Franconian recipes. For a light summer meal, order a glass of wine and a salad composed of several kinds of greens topped with your choice of meats, fish, or mushrooms (€13-15). Or tuck into one of the sausage, fish, or grilled-meat dishes (€8-18). Tasty vegetarian choices (€11-13) are also available, all followed by a large array of tempting desserts, including strawberries in white wine cream (€4-8). Friendly staff.
