The backyard of this Lower East Side beer garden seems too big to be tucked away on such a narrow stretch of Rivington Street. Walk through the perfectly pleasant dining room, lined with exposed brick lit by hanging chandeliers, to where the real action is: outside. Rows of thick wooden tables are littered with hulking steins of beer, shielded from the rain by umbrellas. You can order 12 different beers by the half-liter and liter, including Spaten, Hofbrau, Radeberger and other brews from Germany. Settle down for an afternoon of drinking or order a full meal. Meaty entrees include the brined, braised and roasted pork shank, sausage platter with sauerkraut and mashed potatoes, and thinly pounded pork schnitzel. If you aren't that hungry, a few warm pretzels or a single bratwurst should hold you over until you are. There are also a few German, Austrian and New World wines available alongside bottled beers and a small selection of cocktails.—Keith Wagstaff
