Radegast Hall and Biergarten

113 N. Third St. Brooklyn, NY 11211 | Brooklyn | 718-963-3973

Location Description:

This sprawling beer garden mixes three languages (Slav, English, and German) in its moniker. It was carved from an ancient factory on a Williamsburg side street, but zillions have discovered it, and the joint is packed by mid-evening. The list of 13 draft beers is a wonder of taste (our fave: Gaffel Kolsch, a crisp golden ale from Koln, Germany), but the food menu may leave you scratching your head. Scrapping the usual Buffalo wings and burgers, the abbreviated bill of fare is unusual, slightly upscale - and wonderful. The terrine mixing the livers of rabbits and chickens is superb, served with a plethora of toasts; while the roast quail in demi glace is the equal of any found in a fancy French restaurant. Vegetarians will dig the spinach palacinki (crepes) in a cheesy tomato sauce.
