WEST LOOP — Popular Fulton Market restaurant The Publican is hosting Oktoberfest-inspired dinners until Oct. 2.
The four-course experience, which began Sept. 18, is modeled after the beer halls of Germany. Opened in 2008, the restaurant itself is designed like a European beer hall with an expansive communal banquet table that seats more than 100 people, according to its website.
The Publican’s Oktoberfest menu includes pretzels and beer cheese, smoked whitefish, pork schnitzel and German apple cake — along with pints of German beer to pair the courses. Seating extends across the restaurant’s main dining room and Biergarten patio, and reservations are available on its website at $120 per person.
Oktoberfest is a long-running German tradition that originated in Munich.
