Three years ago, a gang of restaurateurs wanted to start their own food company called Schnitz. The problem was that opening a restaurant in New York City is a tough job, and the three had never done anything like it before. As a possible solution, they started blogging about their experiences, from developing a logo to working on their menu. The goal was to build a community for feedback and to chronicle their struggles and successes in case anyone wanted to follow in their footsteps. In late December, Schnitz nailed down their first brick-and-mortar location.
Get your hot schnitzels at Loreley Restaurant & Biergarten's first annual Schnitzelfest, a six day celebration from November 5-10th. Don't be too quick to don your German gear though, these schnitzels will be taking you on a world tour, with influence from Japan, Switzerland, France, and more. Chef Torsten Ziebold has created a special menu just for the event, containing 11 different schnitzels. There will be two vegetarian options, along with other creative interpretations of the beloved dish. Prices will range from $16-$18 for these hot commodities.
