The stripes of Germany's flag were first constructed from perpendicular tanks of red Berliner Weisse beer, golden Munich amber bock, and black Bavarian dunkel lager. Drink to German heritage with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of authentic German cuisine at Bavarian Garden in Williamsburg.
A wunderland of Teutonic tradition, Bavarian Garden employs seasonal ingredients and authentic recipes when cooking its traditional German comfort fare. While waiting on Gasthaus-style entrees, such as Jaegerschnitzel in a creamy mushroom sauce ($15.95) or the rolled beef roulade ($16.95), diners can spin knife-and-fork couples in time with waltz music filling the dining room. Dirndl-clad fräuleins weave through the Garden's pink cloth-draped tables, with frothy steins of imported Spaten and Paulaner bier hefted in their fists. In an effort to satisfy their separate Bavarian stomach, patrons can fill it with the german sausage sampler, which lays together single links of brat, knock, and house Wurst, parlayed with sauerkraut and potato salad ($14.95). Bavarian Garden shelters an extensive international wine selection, and an array of bottled beers from around the world accompanies its draft options.
During the warmer seasons, the Bavarian Garden opens its bier garten, an outdoor patio for sipping and munching in the Munich way. For quick visits, Bavarian Garden entertains patrons in the Cozy, a wine-and-dessert lounge modeled on a South German stübel, and ideal for casual bites, quaffs, and covert book clubs.
