Celebrate Oktoberfest at Lederhosen in the West Village

Celebrate Oktoberfest at Lederhosen in the West Village

One of the best things about living in New York City is the fact that any and every type of cuisine is within reach. With that said, I started to think about Oktoberfest and restaurants in the city where I can grab a brat and a beer. Of course Lederhosen, a quaint German eatery tucked away on tree-lined Grove Street in the West Village, is at the top of my list. I’ve frequented the restaurant several times over the years, and this is the real deal—complete with a German staff and such German staples as Wiener Schnitzel and a number of different sausage sandwiches. Dinner plates even come with traditional German side dishes, including red cabbage, sauerkraut, onions, bread and butter and your choice of Spaetzle, Bratkartoffeln, German potato salad or mashed potatoes. Diners enjoy this hearty fare in a large dining room with rustic, wooden tables surrounded by a large mural of the Bavarian Alps. A number of beers are available, too, and adventurous types can enjoy their bubbly brew in large beer steins and more. As expected, Lederhosen is celebrating Oktoberfest through the end of the month with a number of specials. And, to really show your Oktoberfest spirit, show up in traditional German garb—lederhosen for the fellas and dirndl for the ladies—and the owner, Dirk, will buy you a half-liter of beer. So make sure to stop by this month. The staff is always ready to say Guten Tag!
