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.
Restaurateur Michael Momm is gearing up for the L.A. opening of his biergarten Loreley, whose original outpost opened on New York’s Rivington St. in 2003. He invited Schaller & Weber (and our patés) to a pre-opening dinner party at his home in Los Angeles. The guests were friendly and down to earth, like Momm himself, and they represented various corners of his life.
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.
Raleigh, NC, is home to a rich food culture, and Capital Club 16 on Martin St. is one exemplary standby for brunch, lunch, and dinner.
Before the trend of the contemporary biergarten took hold in New York, restaurateur Michael Momm had planted Loreley’s roots on Rivington St. on the Lower East Side.
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.
Shacktoberfest is that special time of year when friends and family come together under the bright city lights for an unforgettable meal, ein prosit or two, and, to top it off, incredible custards blended with traditional German flavors (last year’s German Chocolate Concrete: are you kidding me??).
A tasty array of concessions has blossomed at Madison Square Garden over the past year; notably, Andrew Carmellini’s Sausage Boss now serves up Schaller & Weber Cheddar Brats in multiple stands throughout the arena.
Order yourself a 100% all-beef hot dog at Asiadog and you’ve got yourself a fine piece of Schaller & Weber meat, with a patiently-waiting plethora of Asian-inspired toppings to choose from.
A recent and welcome addition to the neighborhood is The Pitch & Fork, a new American tavern from Jacques Ouari, the owner of Jacques 1534 in NoLIta.
Opened in 2009 and named by Gourmet as one of 100 “restaurants worth the money” worldwide, and “a very good restaurant” by the New York Times, DBGB is still going strong in the Bowery.
Our founder, Ferdinand Schaller, received a portion of his training in Alsace, that smallest region of France bordering both Germany and Switzerland, and so our meats tend to cross over well into the French cuisine.
Having missed it last year for the first time in history, we are doubly ready for the 55th annual German-American Steuben Parade, which will take place this Saturday, September 15 at 11:30 a.m. between E. 67th St. and E. 86th St. along 5th Avenue.
Nothing says end of summer like bratwurst, but if you’re a New Yorker, chances are you’re not grilling during your lunch break.
Tomorrow, tune in to Heritage Radio Network at 12pm to hear our long-time supporter and friend, not to mention the very talented Chef Kurt Gutenbrunner, share his “Chef’s Story.”
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.
