Heiliggeist (Mainz, Germany) -- or -- Inside on a Sunday
Mainz is a lovely city, Molly. Have you been? On the Rhine, and only about an hour from Frankfurt. But the airport is between the two, so it made sense to go to Mainz instead. Glad I did. Just don't expect anything to be open on a Sunday! (This becomes a theme in my European travels.)
Heiliggeist Restaurant & Bar -- Highly recommended

Behind the Gutenberg Museum
Eisgrub Brau -- lower your expectations
http://www.eisgrub.de | TripAdvisor reviewers seem to love it.
I love the stumble-upon travel gems. Somehow they're more memorable than the planned ones -- I guess because I have no expectations, and I feel like I am somehow responsible for 'discovering' a place.
Anyway, Molly, hopefully this postcard explains why I missed the closure of Ramen Bar (sad face) and seemed to post my report on it at just about the same time (whoops face).
Next stop: Iceland.
