Bainbridge chef opens Seattle beer hall

blog.mcgillBainbridge Island chef Brendan McGill isn’t confining his ambitions to the west side of the water.

The owner of Hitchcock restaurant in Winslow has opened Altstadt, a German-style beer hall in Seattle’s Pioneer Square.  A grand opening is set for Thursday. See the Altstadt Facebook page for details.

The interior of the “bierhalle and brathaus” is anchored by a grill, bar and massive communal drinking tables (you can see construction pictures on the Kickstarter page for the project). Altstadt serves imported beer and wine, along with hand-made sausage, sauerkraut, cheeses, pretzels and other Old World favorites.

McGill partnered with Lex Petras and Harvey Ward Van Allen III on the project.

Alstadt will open 11 a.m. to midnight daily at 209 1st Ave S.
