Dishes, prepared by German chefs, will include spaetzle, red cabbage, potato pancakes, German potato salad, sauerbraten, sauerkraut and all sorts of schnitzel and German sausages. Breads, cheeses and fruits will also be on the menu, along with desserts like Black Forest cake and German chocolate cake. Honey and organic herbs and vegetables will come from Olive’s garden.
The full bar will include a wide selection of German beer, wine and specialty liquors. There are plans for a beer garden, but for now Sour Kraut will seat about 25 at two long tables and an assortment of smaller tables, covered in blue and white checkered tablecloths.
And for full effect, wait staff will be dressed in lederhosen and dirndls. Open seven days for lunch and dinner; “European” bruch served on weekends.
The 411 is coming. Til then: 118 Main Street, Nyack. 845-358-3122.
