When I last visited the Finger Lakes area, on the way over I stopped in Albany for lunch with a friend of mine. We ate at Wolff’s Biergarten. The best tasting, most authentic, and still-veggie schnitzel I’ve ever had…! Their beer selection was huge as well; it’s one of those places that writes their current selection on blackboards behind the bar.
Even if you’re not a drinker, even if you’re vegetarian (maybe “especially if”), check out Biergarten! It’s worth the trip if you’re in that neck of the woods.
