A long awaited second location of a popular gastropup concept from two popular local restaurateurs has finally set an opening date.
Oasthouse Kitchen + Bar – founded in 2015 by the brothers Amir and Ali Hajimaleki, the creative minds behind the popular restaurants District Kitchen + Cocktails, Keepers Coastal Kitchen and the pizza and grinder joint Shortie’s – will be opened on Wednesday in 5701 Slaughter Ln. , Building D, opened. 15th December.
The new gastropub location – just steps away from the brothers’ Keepers Coastal Kitchen concept in Parkside Village, which includes the Alamo Drafthouse – is Oasthouse’s second outpost, with the first anchored at 8300 N. FM 620 in northwest Austin is.
The Hajimaleki brothers previously informed CultureMap that they had planned to open the new Oasthouse location in the fall of 2020, but this was postponed during the height of the pandemic.
Similar to its location in northwest Austin, the new 4,500-square-foot family-friendly restaurant will offer upscale pub dining and an extensive beer menu, plus a large terrace with a playground, plenty of indoor and bar seating, and a private restaurant for special Occasions.
The Oasthouse menu, which emphasizes Eastern European and German cuisine and ingredients from the region, includes fan faves such as IPA braised pork and spaetzle, Pecan Porter Shepherd’s Pie, the restaurant’s classic allspice burger and currywurst.
Seasonal favorites from Oasthouse’s culinary director Donald Myers include smoked steelhead rillette and spicy curry seafood stew, and pastry chef Dennis Van’s German chocolate cake and sticky toffee pudding are the most delicious way to end a meal at the Oasthouse – but they are also divine as a meal with alongside a seasonal draft beer. And Van’s seasonal streusel desserts change every quarter, so there’s always a new sweet treat.
In addition to the gastropub’s 24 taps with almost every type of beer, from Belgian beauties to Austin must-haves like 512 Pecan Porter, the Oasthouse’s bar menu also offers a few classic and signature cocktails and a far larger selection of wines than often found in beer restaurants.
Of course, happy hour is an ideal time to visit the Oasthouse and runs from Monday to Friday from 3:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., Saturday from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sunday until 3:00 p.m. Happy hour specials include $ 7 worth of appetizers (we look forward to you, carnitas poutine, and fried curd!)
After opening on December 15th, the South Austin Oasthouse will be open Monday through Thursday 3pm to 9pm, Friday 3pm to 10pm, Saturday 10:30 am to 10pm, and Sunday 10:30 am to 9pm.
