Metzger’s Bar and Butchery opens Wednesday on 23rd Street

June 24, 2014 1:40 pm by

Partners Brad Hemp, Nathan Conway, and Brittanny Anderson’s eagerly anticipated Metzger’s Bar and Butchery opens Wednesday at 23rd and Cedar Streets in the heart of Union Hill.

A smallish (40 seats?) corner restaurant, the simple room is defined by an open front window, a wall of gleaming white subway tile, and a rustic single-piece bar by Henry Kettlewell. There is a deli case at the front, and the back wall is anchored by a pair of paintings by Mark Tyburski.

Metzger’s website says that they will “serve ethically raised and hormone-free meats and sausages, European focused wine and beer, and modern German cuisine.” Their snacks/apps/entrees menu (below) runs $3-19 with the anticipated pork, sausage, and sauerkraut, but also a surprising number of vegetarian and pescatarian options.

The European-heavy wine list is very accessible, with glasses priced at $5-7 and bottles at $18-38. “We priced our wines aggressively,” says Anderson, “We want people to drink wine the same way that they drink beer.”

In addition to being a full service restaurant and wine/beer bar, the space also houses a retail wine and butcher shop. Sausage Craft sausages, housemade terrines, pates, and pickles are some of the items available for purchase.

Metzger’s will be open Tuesday-Sunday, with retail opening at 11:00 AM and dinner service starting at 5:00 PM.
