In each of their locations, the Holy Schnitzel staff greet their customers the same friendly way, matching the pleasant ambiance and autumn color scheme of green and orange hues. The chain was started by a brother and sister team Ofeer & Sivan Benaltaba, who after growing up in Staten Island felt kosher was missing this type of cuisine done right. After the success of Staten Island (opened in 2008) and the Five Towns (2011), Holy Schnitzel brought an American menu with schnitzels (breaded chicken cutlets) splashed with a touch of Mediterranean to Brooklyn (2013). Drawing families for lunch or dinner, there is something for everyone with additional healthier alternatives on the menu.
The fun part about going here is that you can mix and match your own sandwich, with a wide variety. The restaurant offers starters such as Buffalo chicken fingers, falafel, and the most ‘craved’ about, Popcorn Chicken with a side of Buffalo, sweet chili or honey BBQ. Health watchers can create their own salad with a choice of four free toppings or to make it simple, just order the Healthy Delight or Avocado Salad. New to the exciting menu is the Steak Egg Roll (London broiled pastrami, sautéed mushrooms, garlic mayo in a Teriyaki sauce). For a great Panini sandwich, the "Cali Love" brings you grilled chicken, avocado, roasted eggplant, and a creamy pesto dressing.
Be sure to try some of their many signature dishes, including: "The Tony Special," a baguette topped with marinated grilled chicken, sautéed onions, peppers, garlic mayo, jalapeno mayo, and spicy mayo; "The Big Sister" an Asian inspired baguette, which includes panko breaded schnitzel with a sesame dressing, sautéed mushrooms and spicy peppers and "The Holy Toasty" consisting of corn flake battered schnitzel, grilled pastrami, and vegetables on flattened toasted baguette with "Holy Sauce" and honey mustard. At Holy Schnitzel you can be guaranteed a pleasant experience from their family to yours.
