While the Bohemian Hall & Beer Garden has become a bona fide tourist attraction, Koliba feels like the insular refuge of a Czech-expat crowd, elbow-to-elbow at the bar. Enormous planks of chicken schnitzel, goulash served with sliced-bread "dumplings," spaetzle in a tangy sheep's-milk sauce—it's not the lightest cuisine. Which is where the excellent palate-cleansing pilsner comes in.Note
