One shade of grey at the incoming Schnitz



Just taking a quick look at Schnitz, which will be opening soon on the corner of First Avenue and East 11th Street… This past Thursday, workers painted the exterior grey (and the Russo's mural that had been tagged beyond recognition…)



And the freshly painted wall was quickly tagged …



Meanwhile, Yoni Erlich, who co-founded Schnitz with his sister Donna and friend Allon Yosha, shared a rendering for the exterior painting of the storefront …



The menus, business cards and customer loyalty cards are ready…

No specific date for an opening just yet. This marks the first restaurant for Schnitz, which serves old-fashioned schnitzel sandwiches with unconventional toppings at Smorgasburg in Williamsburg and Dumbo. Schnitz will serve sandwiches, soups and salads from its East Village location. (You can find their menu here.)

Agh. Ugly. Please bring back something sweet. I need chocolate-covered banana, not a . . . Schnitz! I'm sick already just mentioning Schnitz.

I do miss Something Sweet, but I do like their artwork rendering.

the menu lists a sweet onion schnitzel but the ingredients do not include onions

we all miss something sweet

I have nothing against this business, but gahhhhh, that rendering is hideous. Please don't use that dark depressing shade of gray that seems to be all the rage lately.

I LIKED THE Russon's mural, tags and all. Bring it back, dammit! That grey siding looks like a corporate U-boat!

I love the look of the exterior signage/design. And I am dying to try the pork schnitzel with the pickled cherries! YUUUUUUUMMMMM. Sounds divine!

All those menu choices, but no veal schnitzel? Phony hipster schnitzel, that's all it is.

Place looks like a shipping container now. Yay.

Looks like typical hipster food .. overpriced, overwrought, and not delicious.

As a 37 year resident, I want to go on the record and say that Something Sweet sucked. There, I've said it.
My 6 year old grand daughter can bake better.

haha something sweet did kind of suck but that wasn't the point. the fact it reminds you of your 6-year old is what was great about it. now there will be some probably tasty yet heavily-branded generic business school and marketing product on my corner. place looks like an app. sorry yoni erlich. also this post reads like an ad.

This won't last 6 months. Who the fuck is going to flock to the east village for schnitzel

Good luck with it, I guess. And that's got to be somebody's sister or wife at 9:45 AM.

I like the restaurant concept (and I like shnitzel) a lot better than that stupid-looking "tag." If you're going to bother spraypainting, vadalizing property, risking arrest and so forth, at least do something that looks like a work of art. As-is, it looks like a 3-year-old scribbled on the wall with a crayon. That ain't hip-hop, yo.

Absolutely disgusting overdone concoctions. Yet another hipster hell I won't be setting foot in.

I agree with the comment on the annoyingly bad graffiti. Even the vandals are bland newbies. Bah!

Something Sweet made good cookies and pies, and they were always happy to have customers.

Why did they have to nix the mural? It was fun and colorful. Now this looks like a prison wall.

stopped by last night at around ten, in the rain, and tried a schnitz. The staff was nice and the food delitz.
