It is once again our favorite time of year, Oktoberfest is upon us! Schaller & Weber would like to cordially invite you to our Oktoberfest celebration on Oct. 4th in Astoria, NY. But don’t worry if you can’t make it,just grab yourself an Oktoberfest Pack and read Maxim’s guide to Oktoberfest.
Landbrot Bakery and Bar has arrived on the Lower East Side and in the West Village! There’s a lot to love about this chic restaurant: they’re open late, it’s spacious and of meticulous decor, you can sit outside, their list of cakes fills nearly 11” of menu, and their selection of German craft beers aligns perfectly with our taste.
If you haven’t heard, biergarten and restaurant Loreley has done so well on Manhattan’s Lower East Side that it will soon be expanding to the West Coast, starting with a new location in Los Angeles. They’ll be bringing with them their loved beer list and the strong tradition of Schaller & Weber, so be sure to visit if you’re in town.
You know it’s mid-March when Spring starts stirring under her snowy blanket and Green Cabbage goes on sale at Fairway. This Sunday is St. Patrick’s Day, the annual beer-feast that’s liable to get sloppy without the proper nourishment to accompany it. So what’s it going to be?
Between the clientele (not to name-drop or anything, but, Lou Reed! Lou Reed!), eclectic vintage wall hangings preserved from the space’s previous occupant, Le Zinc, and the beautifully executed German-Austrian menu, chef Kurt Gutenbrunner’s restaurant Blaue Gans in TriBeCa remains a staple for consistently enjoyable, unpretentious, and authentic cuisine.
