We still don't know where German beer hall Radler, and its tasting-menu sibling D.A.S., will be located. But we do know the most important thing— Nathan Sears will be at Baconfest Chicago. Sears, a Baconfest participant all five years and a two-time Baconfest Golden Rasher Award winner, wouldn't miss it, and we learn a little more about the Vie veteran's upcoming German concept in a piece at the Baconfest site highlighting his new spot:
The concept of Radler and D.A.S. was a collaborative effort inspired by [partner Adam] Hebert’s travels to Germany, chef Sears' own German heritage and the pair’s appreciation for German culture and cuisine. Guests can expect to see a variety of dishes with strong German, Austrian and Czech Republic influences on the menus including an array of pickles, preserves and house-made sausages.
The restaurant is set to open this spring. [Baconfest]
