Just as craft beer is cresting, downtown Dallas will get a German-style beer garden with Biergarten on Lamar, a new concept opening this summer in the triangular space wedged in front of the Omni Dallas Hotel. Biergarten joins the previously announced Coal Vines pizzeria, also going into that space.
They are owned by Dallas restaurateur Joseph Palladino, the former New York City police officer who also owns Nick & Sam's and Nick & Sam's Grill. According to a release, both will open on August 10.
Coal Vines is the pizza and wine bar concept Palladino first opened off Cedar Springs Road in 2006, with a blasting coal oven baking New York-style pizzas. It also serves pastas, salads, and wines by the bottle or glass. The Omni location will be the fourth in Dallas-Fort Worth.
Biergarten on Lamar is a classic German-style beer garden that will feature an ivy-covered outside patio and an interior design of white brick and light woods.
"With all the exciting growth going on in downtown Dallas, it’s important that we grow along with it," says Palladino in the release. "Coal Vines is a perfect fit for the new space at the Omni, and I can’t think of a better place to debut our Biergarten concept."
In addition to its regular menu, Coal Vines and Biergarten will offer brunch on weekends.
