For Schnitzel Garten's sixth-annual Oktoberfest event—slated to run Saturday, Sept. 22-Sunday, Oct. 7, from noon to close every day but Mondays—Hugues is planning a festival that is "just what you would get at the Oktoberfest in Munich," his home city.
"We'll be decorated, dancing on the tables, polka, basically the whole thing. It's always fun here, we're packed every year," he said.

"A flame bread is basically a flatbread with bacon and onion over our creme fraiche we make [in-house], topped off in the oven with Swiss cheese," Hugues explained. "It's absolutely amazing."
Live music acts, including accordion players Sharon and Don Murray and klezmer band The Moody Jews of Boise, will provide the tunes most evenings, but both patio and indoor tables fill up quickly—be sure to snag reservations if you're planning to take your stomach on a German tour.
