Tiney Ricciardi Recommends

Opened by the owners of Goodfriend Beer Garden and Burger House in East Dallas, this 1920s-inspired tavern offers 24 beers on draft, including three available on nitro taps. Its 60-plus bottles and cans include a hefty international selection as well as several bombers (more than 22 ounces). The Blind Butcher grabbed local foodies’ attention with its house-cured meats, and since it doesn’t offer reservations, a table here has become increasingly coveted. Luckily there’s patio seating out front plus a spacious patio out back with a second bar. Recommended: Anything labeled poutine.

Think of Blind Butcher more like a tavern with great bar snacks than a restaurant or even a more conventional gastropub. Chef Oliver Sitrin’s cured meats are excellent, if pricey, and the hand-cranked sausages are wonderful, too. Poutine fans should consider the one with duck confit and a duck egg; duck-fat fries rock. There’s a good selection of local craft beers and a small list of charmingly quirky cocktails. Service can be inept or surly (or both), but happily not always. Dinner and brunch Friday-Sunday. No one under 21 admitted after 10 p.m. Full bar. — Leslie Brenner/Guide
