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.
DeBragga and Spitler is to Schaller & Weber as their Dry Aged Filet Mignon is to our Double Smoked Bacon. You might see them in the same meal, certainly, or in the hands of the same chef, but not, except on rare (exalted!) occasions, on the same plate. As it turns out, the two companies’ palates and histories share a lot, but of course they have their divergences as well.
There’s still time to order our quintessential Holiday Ham to serve at your party or Christmas dinner. Perfect for a carving station or as your holiday table centerpiece, this ham is packed with hardwood smoke flavor, done the old-fashioned way every time.
Take it from The New Yorker, our goose liverwurst is the best! We are honored to be featured in this month’s “Eats” issue among the country’s most respected meat purveyors.
I once heard the claim, “You can put anything in a smoker and it will taste good.” While this theory hasn’t been disproven in my presence, a recent trip to Oscar’s Smokehouse in the Adirondacks of New York verified that anything going into their smoker tastes good and comes out tasting better.
We’d like to congratulate Billy Schaller for bagging a six-pointer this past weekend in upstate New York! In Germany, venison is plentiful during the hunting season lasting from October to December, and its preparation is reverently addressed by hunters and chefs alike.
Here’s a recipe for a hearty autumn salade chèvre with Frische Blutwurst (fried blood sausage), which was passed along to us by Renate Schaller. Adapted from Martha Stewart.
There’s a long weekend coming up, and some of you might be heading up to Montauk. If so, we strongly advise you to stop by Zum Schneider, one of our favorite outposts in the area.
We welcome to Park Slope the quintessential German beer hall, and one of majestic proportions and intent at that. Recently opened on St. Marks Place between 4th and 5th Avenues, Die Koelner Bierhalle serves up some 70-odd beers with at least 30 on tap, including one of our favorites, Kölsch, straight from Cologne.
