Joseph Palladino is a Dallas known name. The restaurant mogul behind such names as Nick & Sams and Coal Vineshas brought some amazing concepts to our city. Now he brings a new concept to the brand spanking ‘can still smell the paint drying’ block of restaurants at the Omni Dallas. Enter, Biergarten, a casual new restaurant and bar by Palladino. I snuck in today at lunch during their quiet soft-opening to get a peek into what you can expect to find and dine on when you try it out!
Biergarten is the kind of place you come in, find draft upon draft of beer, an open kitchen with hand carved meats, German delights and an awesome dining area. You’ll be happy to know, too, that the bar opens onto a 190-person wraparound patio that looks out toward downtown. So you can have your beer and brat with a view. The menu is straightforward. On my visit in I tried the Bratwurst which comes with your choice of sweet peppers, sauerkraut, hot peppers or grilled onions. There are also some different variations like cracked pepper, chicken and sun-dried tomato or sweet/hot Italian sausage. More in the mood for something heartier? The Chicken Schnitzel will suit you fine. You get to pick a pairing of french fries, Joe’s favorite potato salad, Biergarten Cole Slaw or Soup of the day. The chicken was super flavorful and the crust was just right when topped with my preferred spicy mustard. Happy hour is especially great with free bratwursts and 1/2 priced beer from 4:30-6 Monday-Friday.
The Biergarten has real spirit. I was blown away by the amount of detail in the decor and tap-lined bar. I mean, you feel like you’re really in Germany. Special care is taken to the hand carved meats in the open kitchen that end up on sandwiches like Corned Beef, Pastrami, Turkey or Ham Rueben on locally made rye bread. There’s even a burger that pays tribute to Nick & Sams!
So my friends, head to Dallas’ new favorite ‘garten and sample the lot of brews, German fare and take in the ambience. Prost!
