From Italy to Austria, New York Has a Little Bit of Everyone and That's Why We Love Her
Old-school Italian lovers, you know you can't just swing by any Italian spot in Manhattan to get the real deal. Take that longer subway out to Bay Ridge, walk through the doors of Gino's, and you'll find yourselves in a well-oiled Italian scene. Open since 1964, Gino's churns out all the favorites: baked clams, chicken cutlets, pasta fagioli, and of course, a damn good lasagna.
We'd be remiss not to tell you to check out Schnitzel Haus next in case you don't often trek out this deep into Brooklyn. Wilkommen! The Haus has ten German draft lines and an extensive variety of bottled German and Belgian beers. They even have live music occasionally — see their events lineup here. If you want to go light with appetizers at Gino's and go heavy on the bratwurst at Schnitzel, we're all for that too. Authenticity is the name of the game tonight. From Italy to Austria, New York has a little bit of everyone and that's why we love her.
