When it opened in 2001, few would’ve guessed that Café Steinhof, an Austrian eatery, would be a good fit for Park Slope. Sure, it came with a provenance it was born out of the monthly Austrian nights at now-shuttered Max & Moritz and yes, the owner is authentically Viennese. But c’mon: The Slope’s famously meat-eschewing, organic-veggie-loving locals would just as soon protest a dog run as wolf down a wiener schnitzel. Yet the casual space, with German beer posters, a happening bar and cozy yellow lighting, manages to attract all sorts. The menu, full of Teutonic staples like brats, kraut and deliciously cheesy spaetzle, has hardly changed, but every night and every weekend, for brunch people line up for smoked trout, ridiculously-tender chicken paprika, and linzer torte. (The delicious cocktails, like a warming gluhwein and a sprightly elder blossom gin kir, and low prices don’t hurt either.) With live music and free movies on Wednesdays and Sundays, and $7 gulash on Mondays, Café Steinhof has become a neighborhood institution. Who needs Bavaria?


Kitchen closes at midnight on Fri. and Sat.
