You might ask à la South Park, “What the fuck is a Bavarian beer garden doing in Alphabet City?” Upon entering, you’d have your answer: It’s schvimming mit kustomers. In addition to the trees and checkered tablecloths, there’s a guy in a ski suit doing the chicken dance near the bar. A dozen German brews are on tap, four in the bottle. After knocking back a few, you too will be shaking a tail feather.

East Village German restaurant, not East German Village restaurant, is a great place for a large drink or two. Stopped in there meeting friends and went for the liter of Hofbrau as my guest chose to get a "small" beer. When the 2 arrived, it appeared as though my liter had given birth to a tiny glass of beer. Go for the liter so you can "Prost" with your friends and look authentic. Did not get to sample any of the food, although I am sure the schnitzels and wursts are on par. Will give it a sample soon, along with another liter.
