Craft meat? Beer and sausage joint The Blind Butcher will open on Lower Greenville
The owners of Goodfriend in East Dallas are transferring their skills to the M Streets area.
DALLAS If Dallas were missing anything among the respective beer, coffee, and craft food booms, it might be craft ... meat? That’s on the horizon at least when The Blind Butcher opens on Lower Greenville this spring.
Goodfriend Beer Garden and Burger House owners Matt Tobin and Josh Yingling announced a partnership with Chef Oliver Sitrin, formerly of Village Marquee Grill & Bar, on a new concept that focuses on a selection of sausage, pastrami, and corned beef, in addition to other “house-made meats,” according to a press release. Reps tell us that means in-house curing and dishes more along the lines of charcuterie than standard protein-and-sides selections.
True to form, Tobin and Yingling will bring the beer, offering 20 draughts of “the best in European, American craft, and local beers,” it says here. Guests will also be able to purchase beer by the liter and half-liter, a precursor to Tobin and Yingling’s long-rumored retail project, Goodfriend Package Store, slated to open across the street from Goodfriend later this year.
As for The Blind Butcher, rep Kellyn Curtis of Strauss Marketing PR said that placing it in the former Service Bar space at 1919 Greenville Avenue will lend itself to the building’s 1920s style. The space will have communal seating and dual patios.
Opening date, menu, and website are forthcoming.
