Village Voice's Description

Sometimes older simply is better. That's the case with Heidelberg, an antediluvian spot that was planted in Yorkville back in 1939, when German was a common language in this Upper East Side neighborhood. The place is all gingerbread trim and dirndls, though big, foamy steins of beer reflect a modern sophistication about suds. Naturally, the food is mainly Bavarian (reflecting the origin of many Deutsche immigrants to the city), meaning giant, plate-flopping schnitzels and sausages presented in omnibus platters with tangy purple cabbage, kartoffeln, and sauerkraut. Ein prosit! A beer garden has been outfitted downstairs

Tips from foursquare

  • New York Habitat on 12/09/11

    Great sausage platters but they're made even better with the beer options. Be wary, if you want to drink out of the 2 liter boot, it takes a $60 cash deposit.

    Two liters of beer in a glass boot. You can’t go wrong!

  • Dorrian's Red Hand on 10/17/11

    When we're in the mood for the best German food in the whole city, we head just a few blocks over to the Heidelberg for brats, potato pancakes, pork shank, boots of lager, and to say hi to Dieter!

    Established in1939 where German was a common language. The result? Giant, plate-flopping schnitzels and sausages. Beer garden downstairs. Winner of Best of NYC Critics' choice for Best German!
