Watermark Oktoberfest NYC: What to Order for Lunch/Dinner?
I’m knot kidding. A full Oktoberfest menu is available a la carte or family style for the table. We started with jumbo pretzels that were served with Austrian pimento cheese dip, horseradish mustard and Radeberger cheese sauce. This pretzel was soft and salty and a bite of German heaven. The dipping sauces were fantastic. It’s pretty big, so expect leftovers.
You are the wurst. Our guests tried the Wurst Sampler, which was served with a warm potato salad.
Mac me so happy. The Gaffel’s Beer Mac and Cheese was rich, creamy and delicious. It has Weisslacker, fontina, gouda and garlic breadcrumbs.
Cry me a river. Beer Battered Onion Rings- can we say more. These onion rings were fried to perfection. Don’t even think about your diet today, save it for Monday.
