For a new twist on the traditional schnitzel, try the sandwiches at Schitz. Originally a stand at Smorgasburg, Schnitz, run by brother and sister Yoni and Donna Erlich, opened up its first brick and mortar location earlier this year. When I visited, I tried the Bamberg and the Sweet Onion Sandwiches along with a side of Schnitz Fries. The chicken was juicy inside and perfectly crunchy outside – a true balance of textures. Each sandwich is topped with house made pickled vegetables which can also be bought by the jar. With eight different sandwiches including chicken, pork belly, pork loin, shrimp, and butternut squash and corn, Schnitz is sure to have the schnitzel to fill any craving.
I finally visited the Popover Cafe I’d heard so much about and having no idea what a popover actually is, I was astonished when this gigantic mound of pastry was placed in front of me! Thankfully I soon discovered is was a flaky, buttery pastry encasing a fistful of air =)

I can’t believe it’s here. The end of the year. Our last Culinary Society event is this Sunday (yes, an awesome trip to Il Laboratorio del Gelato), and that’s it! This will be my final Culinary Society blog post as president, but instead of lingering with long goodbyes, let’s reflect back on the good times and the good food.
…well, technically I’m not, but one of my photos is! It’s a picture of Hangar Steak with an Almond-Herb Salsa.
