A First Look at Loreley Williamsburg

The Lower East Side’s Loreley expands to Williamsburg this month, just in time for biergarten season, not to mention the World Cup, which will be aired live and celebrated with pretzel-dough “soccer rolls” filled with ingredients (pulled pork, Serrano ham) representative of participating countries (United States, Spain).

If the rest of the menu sounds a tad heavy for the weather (sauerbraten with dumplings and cabbage, braised pork shank with mashed potatoes and sauerkraut, sausages of every stripe), many of the brews don’t. An all-German list features a dozen draught selections, including pilsners like Bitburger, Radeberger, and Jever, plus one of Cologne’s best-known exports: kölsch from the Gaffel and Reissdorf breweries, both available by the traditional .2-liter glass.The location, a former gas station in the shadow of the BQE, now houses an 80-seat restaurant, 10-seat bar, and 60-seat patio outfitted with communal tables and brewpub furnishings imported from Germany.
