Rich Uncle Tavern (formerly The Berlin)

Quote:The Berlin will focus on "modern European" food, including German, Austrian, Polish and Hungarian fare — think spaetzle, perogies, dumplings and steaks — cooked over a wood-fired hearth, [Gushue] said...

The menu at The Berlin will make a nod to Waterloo Region's Germanic heritage, although it will be ever-changing and have a broad range of influences, including Japanese cooking techniques.

"The area has a lot of central European roots. That's great food that really very few people explore," Gushue said. "It speaks to this region, and the kind of food we both love. The food is not showy, it's approachable, and it's very straightforward."


About bloody time (he says fondly remembering The Ratskeller et al restaurants.)

Two restaurants.  Wow.  Definitely bullish on downtown.

Definitely a bold move - but excellent news as Downtown is desperate right now.

If this happens there will actually be a bit of a nice destination node there - Graffiti, Berlin, TWH Social, Darlise and the Bruce.  That is a hell of a start and will hopefully get people excited!

I would have said less "desperate" than it has been for years.

Tiles were being removed from the outside of Berlin as of this morning. More progress, but it seems like a lot of work remains if they want to open by the end of this month.

The lease has not been finalized for the second location, as of yet. They may end up finding another location.

Sign went up for The Berlin today - nice gold block letters. Renovation work has been pretty intense these past few weeks, so I imagine they''ll be open within a few weeks (in time for Christmas party season!).

The sign does indeed look nice.

They are planning to open in the first week of December. Apparently one of the contractors was not getting the work done and had to be replaced, so the schedule got shifted back.
