Village Voice's Description
Chef Kurt Gutenbrunner is on a roll. Right on the heels of the wildly inventive Thor, he debuted Blaue Gans ("Blue Goose"), with food considerably more normal--if you come from Austria, that is. Sure there's a Wiener schnitzel, but the pair of luscious cutlets come smothered in cream sauce sporting bacon and diced mushrooms, heaped with the softest spaetzle imaginable. Then there's a salad of rare, fat-rimmed duck with candied chestnuts; a nifty menu of sausages sided with cabbage products and freshly grated horseradish; and a dense boiled beef shoulder cut in thick slices.
Tips from foursquare
Perfect for those on jury duty at nearby courthouses. German-Austrian classics on the menu include Wiener schnitzel (breaded and fried), Jaeger schnitzel (with mushroom sauce), bratwurst and spätzle.
Something of an oddity, at least at first blush, Blau Gans turns out rustic Bavarian food in its stripped-down digs. A local standby with food that far exceeds expectations. [Eater 38 Member]
I recently came to appreciate Austrian food, and I have Chef Kurt Gutenbrenner to thank for it. I cannot get enough of his venison goulash with spaetzle or any of those juicy würsts. -Gail Simmons, To
The pork wiener schnitzel is the best around. Sauerkraut amazing too and the herb spaetzl!
A great venue for watching the World Cup. Great spirit here.
