Our Story

Nick’s German Kitchen

German food with a modern twist… that is Nick’s German Kitchen! 

Restaurateurs Nick & Kelly have been serving their German favorites since 2004 when they opened up their boutique restaurant “Mezzo” in Darmstadt Germany, a combination of German & Italian cuisine served in an intimate upscale location. Fast forward 15 years to 2019… Nick & Kelly opened up a new “Mezzo” in Charleston, South Carolina. Serving an upbeat blend of European specialties with a heavy emphasis on German and Italian, Mezzo found many followers in the greater Charleston area. By far the favorite items on Chef Nick’s diverse menu: the Schnitzel!  So many came just for Schnitzel and Spaetzle alone that after two years of Mezzo, Nick & Kelly decided to answer the overwhelming demand for more of Nick’s German specialties and rebranded to Nick’s German Kitchen in 2021. 

Featuring scratch-made German specialties like Schnitzel, Spaetzle and more, Nick’s German Kitchen offers an authentic German kitchen infused with a modern vibe. Flavorful, fresh and appealing, Nick’s German will make you rethink everything you think you know about German food! Guten Appetit!

What People are Saying

“A Great Find”

Excellent wait staff and food was outstanding. We are from the northeast and we’re looking for good food aside from the traditional southern cuisine. Needless to say we have found an excellent date night restaurant and will continue to go there.


“Just like in Europe”

There’s not enough space here to write how great a place this is. You just have to experience it. “

From start to finish our experience was fantastic. Everyone was gracious and kind. The restaurant truly has a warm energetic friendly atmosphere that makes you feel like you are in a cafe in Europe. The cuisine is DELICIOUS.
