Menu Highlights From The Radler in Logan SquareBy Sarah Freeman | December 6, 2013 By Sarah Freeman | December 6, 2013
When excavating the space that would eventually become The Radler, the team uncovered a 120-year-old mural that became the backdrop to the bar and centerpiece of the German-themed beer hall. Inspired by Bavaria, ornate carved clocks and glassware and long wood tables fill the restaurant that specializes in vintage ales and encased meats.
Chef/partner Nate Sears, formerly of Vie, is running the kitchen and serving a hearty menu appropriate for the restaurant’s winter debut. Roasted half chicken with sauerkraut, rabbit confit on juniper semolina toast and German onion pie are just a few of the opening items. The restaurant will also showcase an extensive sausage program with four different wursts served with appropriate accompaniments. Partner/general manager Adam Hebert will soon roll out a beverage menu with 100-150 bottles, draft beer and cocktails. Also coming soon to the space is brunch, as well as a sister restaurant called D.A.S. Located in a private dining room at the rear of the restaurant, it will serve a tasting menu come March.
In the meantime, drool over a few standout menu items from The Radler, which opened in Logan Square on Tuesday. Prost!
