Wunderbar: German night at Glen Head's Iron Horse
On Wednesday, The Iron Horse becomes Die Eisen-Pferd.
Yes, it's German night in Glen Head.
You still can dive into burgers and wings, plus chicken piccata and Marsala. But on Wednesday night, the specials take in sauerbraten and smoked pork chops, bratwurst and steak with fried onions, and at least four schnitzels, from plain Wiener to a la Holstein with a fried egg. Housemade potato pancakes, egg noodles, and red cabbage are among the side dishes.
Price range: $12.95 to $20.95.
The recipes for these specialties come from the family of owner Al Nieman, said bartender Stephanie Lamb. She added that Spaten Oktoberfest is poured year-round at bar, which has been in business for more than 30 years.
German night lasts from 5 to 10 p.m.
Fittingly, The Iron Horse is near the railroad station. And models of locomotives are among the items decorating the place.
The Iron Horse, 6 Railroad Ave., Glen Head; 516-676-9272.
