Wild Goose’s Smoke & Oak Bistro is smokin’ its way into its second year. Chef Sarren has created a mouth-watering menu of smoked Southern comfort food coupled with German staples like spaetzle (pronounced shpetz-luh) from the Kruger’s own family recipes
“It’s about the experience: like you went home to that family that loves having you for dinner. The Krugers want you to leave full, content and happy. No one ever leaves hungry!”
