BUFFALO, N.Y. - We're doing Unique Eats Oktoberfest style this week, as we headed to a German restaurant that's been around for decades.
Scharf's Schiller Park very nearly had to shut down last year before incredible support from the community kept it going. After 36 years, this family-owned spot tucked away in the Schiller Park neighborhood is still going strong- long after many of the other German hangouts in this changing neighborhood have died out.
The restaurant prides itself on home-style German cooking that's just like you'd find in Deutschland. Its potato pancakes get praise around the city and are a great way to introduce someone who's a little cautious about trying German food- as are the butter-fried spatzle noodles. For those who already acquired the German taste, the rouladen cooked with bacon are a delicious choice off the menu.
During the month of October, the restaurant is offering live German music every Saturday for Oktoberfest.
And Sunday, October 6th, there's a special Oktoberfest event in Schiller Park next to the restaurant- it runs 3 to 9 with German beer and food, accordion music and a European DJ. Tickets are three dollars.
Check out Scharf's at its website and be sure to let us know where to go next on Facebook and WGRZ.com.
