Swoon: Liter House
When you fuse the smoke of Texas barbecue with the rib-sticking classics of German cuisine, you get Liter House, the latest in Eddie Sahm’s Big Lug suds-and-grub concepts. In this colorfully attired “Bavariana” beer hall, pit master Blake Ellis, formerly of Repeal, and John Adams, long known for his imaginative fusion dishes, collaborate on skate wing schnitzel, smoked chicken with red cabbage, and wursts made with proprietary recipes by Smoking Goose. The dish that best brings the disparate traditions together is this Hungarian goulash, braised brisket ends in a stock spiked with Big Lug Kings Jive brown ale, caraway, ancho chili, and both sweet and smoked paprika, all nestled atop homemade spaetzle.
