Manhattan – Lower East Side
7 Rivington St between Bowery and Chrystie St

Loreley defies cultural stereotyping: It"s a German beer garden and it"s remarkably inefficient. A small back patio with too-close canopied picnic tables was only occasionally visited by the staff. Granted, the beer selection is extensive; Dortmunder and Spaten Mai Bock were tasty, and a good thing, too, because the wait for food was about as long as Wagner"s complete Ring cycle. Perhaps the spotty service will improve in time, but the food needs more attention as well. When the jägerschnitzel and sausage platter arrived, the schnitzel had been pounded so thin that the breading seemed like the main event. Other wurst dishes were unremarkable; apfelstrudel was Pop Tart-ish. And the place was packed. Go figure.
