East Hampton’s Rowdy Hall is celebrating Oktoberfest with an array of special German dishes through Sunday, Oct. 3. Some items will be available throughout the festival, while other offerings will only be served during the first or second week.
Held annually in Munich, Bavaria in Germany and attracting some 6 million people from around the world each year, Oktoberfest typically begins in mid to late September and continues through the first Sunday in October. It’s all about celebrating the country’s food, beer, music and traditions, and having a great time.
Bringing a bit of the fun from Germany to East Hampton Village, Rowdy Hall is offering their famous giant Bavarian pretzel with mustard a la carte for $11 as well as Obatzda, Bavarian beer cheese served with rye toast and radishes for $12 during both weeks.
Between now and Friday, Sept. 24, diners can enjoy Bavarian sausage salad, including kielbasa, sliced dill pickles, red onion and bibb lettuce for $16; wienerschnitzel with vinegar -and-salt shoe-string fries for $24; and German butter pound cake with quark cream, lemon cardamom glaze for $12.
Then, from Saturday, Sept. 25 to Sunday, Oct. 3, start with potato leek soup with pretzel croutons for $12; followed by knockwurst, bratwurst and bockwurst with German potato salad, sauerkraut and mustard for $27; and for dessert, black forest torte with cherry compote, whipped cream and chocolate curls for $12.
Rowdy Hall is also celebrating the East Hampton Village Centennial next weekend, Sept. 24–26 with fish and chips for $19.20 to commemorate the village’s founding in 1920.
Diners can also get the restaurant’s new 25th anniversary plastic cup with their first pint of beer ($7 for 22oz beer in special cup) and $6 refills in the cups, which are already on sale, but will only be refillable from Sept. 24–26.
