Named after a pair of gray suede shorts, Lederhosen is the premier downtown beer garden. A mountain mural decorates the back room, in which lederhosen hang from the ceiling, and seating is at crowded trencher tables. The apex of the menu is the wursts;sausages in seven varieties served with bread and pickled salads. Smoked kielbasa and the Berlin-style currywurst are the most memorable. If you're in a snacking mood, don't miss the tender pretzels, served with honey mustard. Of the big feeds, pick the sauerbraten or the big, bland, gravied meatballs.
