Social networking prevails in NLR pretzel twist

A grass-roots Facebook effort to bring back the beloved McCain Mall German restaurant Mr. Dunderbak's — which closed in 2000 — has apparently prevailed, with the original owner of the pretzels-and-brats shop planning to bring a new-and-improved version of the store back to the mall this fall.

The blog Fancy Pants Foodie reports that a Facebook page started in 2009 called "Mr. Dunderbak's in McCain Mall — bring it back!!!!" caught the eye of the daughter of former Mr. Dunderbak's owner Richard Davidson, who ran the restaurant from 1973 until he sold it in 1990. Davidson decided to unretire and start the new restaurant at the urging of his daughter.

Fancy Pant Foodie says that the new and improved Mr. Dunderbak's, now under construction, will feature old faves like brats and big, soft pretzels, as well as new vegetarian offerings, a coffee bar, and a beer/wine lounge.
