Village Voice on New Schnitzel House in Bay Ridge

As the century-old German American restaurants of Queens neighborhoods like Middle Village and Richmond Hill have been disappearing, they've been replaced with newfangled places—mainly in Lower Manhattan—that emphasize tap beer and a limited menu of wursts and schnitzels. Now along comes Bay Ridge's Schnitzel Haus, larding a lengthier menu with all sorts of modern and traditional dishes from the fatherland, many rarely seen in New York. A blonde fräulein hoisting a tray of brews greets you from the sign outside. The premises are all dark polished woods and smoke-colored tin ceilings, and the long bar is more likely to be full than the dozen or so tables, except on weekend evenings when the place crawls with elderly German Americans.

I'm picturing a place crawling with elderly German Americans. That sentence is sort of creepy.
