Beef Roulade at Paulaner

Roll out the beer barrels and strike up the oompah band: Oktoberfest starts this weekend! The Lower East Side’s Paulaner will turn into NYC’s “Lederhosen Central” for the next month, starting Saturday. And while there will be the usual selection of wurst, schnitzel and pretzels, there’s one specialty that should not be overlooked during the foamy frenzy: the braised beef cheek roulade ($24), rounds of rich, soft stewy slices served with sides of spätzle and glazed carrots. Add an order of potato pancakes ($10) and you’ll be primed to “Prost!” all night.
