Biergarten on Lamar opened last November and this past week, I finally got around to a visit to check out this modern take on the classic German-style beer garden. After visiting several German-style beer gardens around the world, Nick & Sam's owner, Joseph Palladino, had an a-ha moment and realized that this was a concept lacking in Dallas. Following two years of intensive research and planning, and several trips to Europe to find the perfect beers and brats, Biergarten was born. Located steps from the Convention Center, Biergarten is the perfect place for conventioneers to relax, roll up their sleeves and do business, but it's also a great destination for Dallas residents and Downtown professionals. The stylish German bar and restaurant outside the entrance to the Omni Dallas Hotel features a wraparound patio facing Dallas’ thriving downtown. An authentic German atmosphere greets every guest, and the menu beckons with such signature items as pastrami, baked pretzels, bratwurst and knockwurst. It features an ivy-covered outside patio and a timeless interior design with white brick, light woods and a warm, casual setting.
Biergarten has a great new special happening this month called ‘Mocktoberfest’ - because why wait until the fall to put on your Lederhosen and fill up your stein? You’ll want to raise a stein to this deal, which includes one mini burger slider, one mini schnitzel slider, one mini brat and two sides (cole slaw and Joe’s potato salad), PLUS a 16 oz. Oktoberfest beer in a souvenir Paulaner Okto mug…all for just $15 through March 31. “For a city that appreciates great food and beer, Mocktoberfest gives us an exciting opportunity to showcase our authentic German menu,” said Executive Chef Angelo Landi of Biergarten, located just outside the entrance to the Omni Dallas Hotel. “Biergarten is the closest you can get to Germany without leaving Dallas.” Biergarten is located at 665 S Lamar St #1, Dallas, TX 75202.(214) 303-1880, http://biergartenonlamar.com
