If you’re over Radegast Hall & Biergarten, a new option in the ‘burg will soon be available for you to drink huge beers and eat massive pretzels and/or sausages. The second location of the popular LES spot Loreley is scheduled to open ANY DAY in Williamsburg on Frost Street and Meeker Avenue taking the place of a former gas station.
The new digs boast an 80-seat interior brightened by soaring sky-lit ceilings and imported Baltic maple tables, while the poured concrete bar overlooks a brick-fenced garden with communal seating set in a greens-lined gravel pit. Traditional Deutsche noshes have made the trek, including signature oven-fresh pretzels, sausages served simply w/ mustard & rye, and baskets of curry-ketchup’d pork meatballs, while heartier fare includes sandwiches (the jagdwurst/Prague ham/garlic pepper salami/gouda Loreley Club) and a butcher’s plate loaded w/ smoked pork chops, rib bacon, and smoked sausage, all on a bed of mashed potatoes and sauerkraut. There’s a limited selection of bottles (Augustiner Edlestoff, Erdinger…) and 12 rotating, oft-seasonal taps that fuel half- and full-liter steins with everything from their specialty Gaffel, to Schneider Weisse, to Reissdorf Kolsch.
