UPDATED: Peep the menu at The Blind Butcher, opening on Lower Greenville in February
The bar's already open.
LOWER GREENVILLE If you didn’t hear about The Blind Butcher’s “quiet opening” Monday, you surely heard about it Tuesday, when blogs throughout Dallas were buzzing with pictures of the longtime coming place on Lower Greenville.
The Blind Butcher is the product of Goodfriend Beer Garden and Burger House owners Matt Tobin and Josh Yingling, plus chef Oliver Sitrin, who aim to bring “craft meat” such as house-made pastrami, sausage and corned beef to the Dallas foodie scene, we reported back in February 2013.
Though the restaurant’s doors are technically open, you can’t feast on food just yet. Blind Butcher press representative Lindsey Miller said the owners are hoping to for a tentative grand opening date of Monday, February 3, when the kitchen will begin serving.
[UPDATE: The kitchen opens February 6 instead.
Some notable items on the menu are duck and foie gras served with chutney, and bacon bratwurst with sauerkraut and mustard. Sitrin will also make a vegan "hot dog" made with tofu bacon, according to a press release.]
For now, The Blind Butcher is slinging craft beer and cocktails only. If you want to check out the space, it's at Greenville Avenue and Sears Street, near Truck Yard.
