If the heavy weekend traffic of thirtysomethings at Huettenbar ain’t your thing, check out this less refined German spot just down the block. The bare-bones setting makes for a laid-back, chatty evening. True, the decorative Christmas lights and homemade jäger bombs $6 sign scream tackiness, but there’s something refreshing about a place that looks as if it hasn’t changed since 1975.
