Landbrot Bakery and Bar has arrived on the Lower East Side and in the West Village! There’s a lot to love about this chic restaurant: they’re open late, it’s spacious and of meticulous decor, you can sit outside, their list of cakes fills nearly 11” of menu, and their selection of German craft beers aligns perfectly with our taste.
In New York, we are eagerly awaiting the opening of Reichenbach Hall, gearing up to be Manhattan’s largest indoor beer hall and restaurant on W. 37th St. Twin Reichenbachs Keith and Willy are the bros. behind Hop Devil Grill in the East Village, so we know they know how to facilitate a good time.
Restaurateur Michael Momm is gearing up for the L.A. opening of his biergarten Loreley, whose original outpost opened on New York’s Rivington St. in 2003. He invited Schaller & Weber (and our patés) to a pre-opening dinner party at his home in Los Angeles. The guests were friendly and down to earth, like Momm himself, and they represented various corners of his life.
If you haven’t heard, biergarten and restaurant Loreley has done so well on Manhattan’s Lower East Side that it will soon be expanding to the West Coast, starting with a new location in Los Angeles. They’ll be bringing with them their loved beer list and the strong tradition of Schaller & Weber, so be sure to visit if you’re in town.
Before the trend of the contemporary biergarten took hold in New York, restaurateur Michael Momm had planted Loreley’s roots on Rivington St. on the Lower East Side.
A recent and welcome addition to the neighborhood is The Pitch & Fork, a new American tavern from Jacques Ouari, the owner of Jacques 1534 in NoLIta.
We welcome to Park Slope the quintessential German beer hall, and one of majestic proportions and intent at that. Recently opened on St. Marks Place between 4th and 5th Avenues, Die Koelner Bierhalle serves up some 70-odd beers with at least 30 on tap, including one of our favorites, Kölsch, straight from Cologne.
