Sometimes older simply is better. That's the case with Heidelberg, an antediluvian spot that was planted in Yorkville back in 1939, when German was a common language in this Upper East Side neighborhood. The place is all gingerbread trim and dirndls, though big, foamy steins of beer reflect a modern sophistication about suds. Naturally, the food is mainly Bavarian (reflecting the origin of many Deutsche immigrants to the city), meaning giant, plate-flopping schnitzels and sausages presented in omnibus platters with tangy purple cabbage, kartoffeln, and sauerkraut. Ein prosit! A beer garden has been outfitted downstairs
