Around the World in 10 NYC Bars

NYC Nightlife

Sometimes you just have to get away from it all—and sometimes, quaffing copious amounts of foreign liquor and beer is the only way to do it.

Okay, so you won’t catch an awe-inspiring glimpse of the Alps at Zum Schneider, but you will get a grand “Guten Tag!” aus Germany when you wander through its rustic wooden doors. All the Bavarian biergarten basics are accounted for: cheery communal tables, bowls brimming with pretzels, a solid sausageund schnitzel-heavy menu and, most importantly, a dozen Deutsch brews on tap, served up in strong-arm steins primed forprost-ing. Sure, with impossible-to-pronounce items like “Schupfnudeln” ($10) and “Grießnockerlsuppe” ($6) on the menu, you’d have to be a Von Trapp to order without resorting to a pick-and-point situation, but with a simple devotion to delicious Bavarian beers and bites, Zum Schneider proves that thankfully some things don’t get lost in translation.
