Cuisine: Beer Halls/Gardens

We’re not sure why this season has become the summer of the beer garden, but we’re fairly certain our assumption is spot-on. Apparently those in the know thought New Yorkers were lacking places to drink and play amid communal tables, artisan bratwurst, and more imported beer on tap than one might expect. And now FoodParc has come into the fray with BeerParc, an outdoor space that’s roomy enough to dance, mingle, and enjoy some gourmet grub. Did we mention there’s also a 35-foot Jumbotron video screen that’s been playing a film series on Tuesday evenings?Review By: Joann Jovinelly
Part of the newest venture of FoodParc, the Eventi Hotel’s futuristic take on the upscale food court, BeerParc features at least five different microbrews on tap (Magic Hat #9, Radeberger Pilsner, Tucher Helles Hefeweizen, Brooklyn Lager, and Southampton Publick House Double White Ale) and others like Dale’s and Butternuts in cans. Non-alcoholic selections include fresh lemonade, but plenty of additional options may be had just steps away inside FoodParc.
As for grub, BeerParc has got you covered with Germanic-inspired fare like grilled cheddarwurst or veal links, potato salad, and kraut from Edi & the Wolf, Ed’s raw bar – littleneck clams ($6), jumbo shrimp cocktail ($3), lobster avocado roll ($12), and oysters – pulled pork sandwiches from Fatty ‘Cue ($6), and a crunchy Thai-flavored fried chicken from Kin Shop ($6), though a few items were already sold out during our visit at 6PM on a week night. And although it wasn’t yet open, a salad bar with a build-it-yourself option and a host of fresh greens is coming in July.
In anticipation of long lines, BeerParc operates like an amusement park, selling tickets for $3 each that can be exchanged for food and drink. Most menu items range between two and three tickets each, but it’s much more fun to buy extra and distribute them amongst your party. (Any unused tickets can be exchanged on your next visit, as they are good for the entire season.)
Kick back and watch the big game with a frothy cold one and some gourmet tastes that won’t leave you questioning why you ventured out in the first place. Overall, BeerParc graduates the cheap eats aesthetic with plenty of sun, cool breezes, a relaxing attitude, and a reflecting pool to more easily spark up the conversation between you and that gorgeous redhead.
