From light salads to heartier meat dishes, everyone in the family can find something delicious. While you might think of heavy meals when it comes to Eastern European cuisine, the Froeschls adapt the food to their Campbell customers by making lighter dishes.
“We try to bring in California style to everything we do,” said Margaux. “We’re able to tweak it in a way that we’re able to change it based on the market here.”
The classic Austrian dish Wiener schnitzel is the most popular dish at the restaurant, said Froeschl. Naschmarkt Restaurant serves it with lingonberry sauce, Austrian potato salad, lemon and crisp parsley for a price of $29.
Customers also love the goulash, which is an Austrian version of a beef stew. It is braised in paprika with herbed spatzle (Austrian pasta), mixed peppers and sour cream for a price of $27.
Since a majority of their produce comes from the farmers’ market, the menu is constantly changing with the seasons. Margaux said, “It all depends on what’s freshest and what we can get locally.”
Recently Matthias Froeschl prepared salmon with quinoa and heirloom tomatoes as a special. The weekly changes to the menu keep the restaurant new and interesting, even for regulars, Margaux said.
She said that operating a family business in Campbell feels like an honor since the community is so accepting.
“A lot of people from the community have become our customers and our friends as well,” she said.
Naschmarkt Restaurant is owned by Margaux and Matthias Froeschl, Margaux’s parents Marcine and Alain Staebler, and Humberto Ramirez.
