THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Schumacher's Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Cranks might call Schumacher's a throwback, but most delight in the rich and heavy Old World flavors. Head chef John Schumacher conquered dyslexia to become an accomplished chef. Perhaps because his battle with a learning disability was so hard-fought and won, Schumacher does what he pleases, creating dishes such as Charvany chicken (a chicken fillet stuffed with Swiss cheese and sliced corned beef, dusted with flour, dipped in eggs, coated with fresh bread crumbs and sautéed to a golden brown) which are almost defiantly rich. At the same time, Schumacher is more a historic preservationist than a loose cannon. His Czech sausage, made with pork and barley and served with Schumacher's signature horseradish, has made immigrant sons and daughters weep with joy, and the hotel's bar feels right out of a Bavarian fairy tale. But the real reason why we trip down to New Prague is to sample dishes such as the red elk, a char-grilled center cut elk loin with bronzed onions and red peppers, garnished with cran-raisin relish and horseradish. When Schumacher deals in wild game he has no rival.
