Our Man Sietsema: "Reeling with Fat and Carbs"
This week, Sietsema gets stuffed with rehkirschwuerstchen, Bayarischen ochsenmaul, Jaegerschnitzel, Schweinefleisch, and Schweinshaxe Hofbrauhaus. No, I am not typing with my fists. Sietsema has explored a new Bay Ridge restaurant, Schnitzel Haus.
"As the century-old German American restaurants of Queens neighborhoods like Middle Village and Richmond Hill have been disappearing, they've been replaced with newfangled places—mainly in Lower Manhattan—that emphasize tap beer and a limited menu of wursts and schnitzels. Now along comes Bay Ridge's Schnitzel Haus, larding a lengthier menu with all sorts of modern and traditional dishes from the fatherland, many rarely seen in New York."
