Just the name, Funkenhausen, connotes, well - fun. But the West Town restaurant is no Disneyesque gimmick. The space is an elegantly casual beer hall and Executive Chef Mark Steuer mixes a magical Southern American/German culinary alchemy in the kitchen inspired by his Charleston roots and German family heritage. Enjoy colossal garlicky pretzels, bratwurst and Amish chicken year-round but autumn brings a Funkoberfest celebration filled with special food and beer. The West Town spot pours 16oz Spaten Oktoberfest beer ($8 all day, every day) for the entirety of Oktoberfest (Sept. 17 - Oct. 3). Enjoy barbecue each Sunday from 5-8pm ($38) with a smoked meat main and three sides. Try bratwurst with mustard, house giardiniera, and sal & vinegar chips; seasonal pretzel panzanella; and Berkshire pork loin schnitzel. Ach du meine Güte! Peruse the extensive beer list with 27 and 45 oz boot pours to sip in the biergarten all season long.
