Zum Schneider MTK
4 S. Elmwood Ave. Montauk, NY 631-238-5963
Contrarian chic fun, this new, Bavarian-themed beer hall will have you hoisting a few to go with bracing German cuisine. It's the vacation offspring of Zum Schneider at Avenue C and Seventh Street in Manhattan. Tables with benches as well as chairs, a horseshoe bar, plenty of color. Sample the wursts, sliced white radish, the soft pretzel, roasted pork shoulder in dark-beer gravy, local bass marinated in German beer with a smoky flavor, pan-seared local scallops on potatoes and sauerkraut, sauerbraten. Wash it down with brews on tap from Hofbräuhaus Traunstein.
