Tacos, banh mi, gyros, bistro food, Spanish sandwiches, meatballs — a few years ago, it kind of felt like you’d seen it all. Then in 2009, Schnitzel & Things showed up on the New York City food truck scene and won the Rookie of the Year at the Vendy’s. Clever, huh? Not something you would have thought you’d find on a food truck, right? (Those folks that always tell you, "Everything has been done," don’t know everything.)


The hand-pounded, lightly breaded, thin cutlets of fried veal, chicken, pork, cod, and (yes there's a vegetarian option) eggplant are really good — so too, the sides, especially the Austrian potato salad (Yukon Gold dressed with white wine shallot vinaigrette and scallions) and the cucumber salad. Count Schnitzel & Things among the other trucks whose asphalt success has led them to a permanent home. They still have the truck, but now it’s in addition to their brick-and-mortar Midtown spot on 3rd Avenue between 45th and 46th streets. — Arthur Bovino, 11/13/2012
