The Second Coming of 1882's hawtest bar

The original Beuchert's opened 130yrs ago and closed down in 1934, presumably because they refused to sell Midori shots served in test tubes, which were quite popular at the time. Point is, the reborn saloon now graces Eastern Market with a locally sourced "farm American" menu, plus hand-blown chandeliers, taxidermy-ed buffaloheads (named "Mike" and "Ike"), and leather waiter aprons among other period pieces (or as they called them 130yrs ago: "pieces").Owned by one of the restaurant's partners, East Oaks Organics Farm will be delivering fresh cured meats like this charcuterie plate of sopressata, bresaola, saucisson sec, and pickled Purple Haze carrots, which are quite the tasting experience.Bringing his skills from PS 7, exec chef Andrew Markert has put together a menu flush with goodness like this Carolina golden rice plate fulla roasted lobster.Tremble in awe of this homemade fudge popsicle w/ graham cracker crumbs and marshmallow fluff.And the bar gets in character with a barrel-aged Manhattan amongst its 13 cocktails, so enjoy having your life fall to pieces.
