Back in June, we reported that Beuchert’s Saloon, a modern-day reincarnation of a 19th century saloon that operated as a speakeasy during Prohibition, was coming to Eastern Market.
The team behind the restaurant—Nathan Berger, August Paro, and Brendan McMahon—have now announced that the eatery will open on January 7 with former PS7’s chef de cuisine Andrew Markert helming the kitchen.
Markert, a Baltimore native who’s also worked at Tallula and Hook, is breaking the menu down into five main sections: Markert’s Market (local seasonal vegetable dishes), Snacks (roasted bone marrow; oxtail tagliatelle), Whole Meals (braised lamb with rosemary gnocchi; striped bass), Company (sides like roasted mushrooms and white corn girts), and Treats (bananas foster Twinkie with rum frosting).
Many of the ingredients are sourced from East Oaks Organic Farm in Poolesville, Md., which McMahon’s family owns. Take a closer look at the menu offerings below.
