Scharf's German Restaurant

A longtime Schiller Park landmark restaurant that moved to West Seneca five years ago is closing down.

After no resolution of a request to City Hall for a Special Use Permit to open a former bank as a banquet facility, Councilmember Richard Fontana will try to resolve the dispute at a Saturday morning meeting in the George Arthur Center near Schiller Park.

Crowds overflowed Sharf's restaurant Monday night, hoping to keep the Schiller Park landmark open despite having fallen on hard times.

Second generation owner Jerry Scharf says business has fallen so much he might have to close a restaurant his family has run since 1967.

Monday night, the kitchen staff was pumping out the traditional sausage and sauerkraut. Scharf had a big smile on his face at the overflow crowd, saying he and his children were encouraged by the show of support for his struggling business. The organized fundraising event was dubbed "Scarf for Scharf's."
