On summer evenings, when the windows are wide open, this breezy brick-walled space feels particularly European. Locals sip tall beers and prosecco with elderflower syrup while grazing on simple but hearty Austrian comfort food. There’s no better time to visit than Monday nights, when $5 buys you one of two specials: a bowl of goulash with tender chunks of beef, or a lemony fried trout fillet. On any other day of the week, try the dependable Wiener schnitzel with tangy pickled cucumbers.
