USA Dinner
Bailliage of Greater Miami
Miami, October 12, 2015
Celebrating Oktoberfest at Schnitzel Haus Miami
" It is for sure that his passion for life and great cuisine is all about sharing and the embodiment of Chaîne camaraderie "

Oktoberfest was first held on October 12, 1810, as a wedding reception when Crown Prince Ludwig married Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen. The occasion has since transformed and is celebrated worldwide by more than six million people.

The Bailliage of Greater Miami kicked off its new season on October 12th with a spectacular Oktoberfest at Schnitzel Haus Miami, affectionately known as the “Munich of South Florida”.

If you listen carefully, you can hear the sounds of beer poured into beer mugs, a band playing and everyone having a jolly time. In the spirit of Oktoberfest, Bailli Nancy Radlauer, Bailli Provincial Southeast Charles Radlauer and several attendees wore lederhosen and dirndl.

Schnitzel Haus owner and Executive Chef Alex Richter opened his charming old world restaurant eleven years ago. He poured his heart and soul into making his restaurant reminiscent of his homeland. The decor features a Bavarian skyline and a plethora of memorabilia in every nook and cranny.

German beer, wine and bubbly were served in the beautiful Biergarten where guests feasted on Frikandellen sliders and a medley of sausages. The sliders are based on Richter’s mother’s original recipe.

Our family-style dinner exemplified homemade specialties of goulash, roasted breast of veal, Jaeger Schnitzel, spaetzle, and platters of Schnitzel Haus apple strudel and German’s chocolate cake, laden with schlag (cream) of course!

Bailli Nancy Radlauer gifted beer pretzels to everyone before drawing the raffle winners and presenting Chef Richter with a commemorative plaque. It is for sure that his passion for life and great cuisine is "all about sharing" and the embodiment of Chaîne camaraderie.
