Three years into business, Goodfriend Beer Garden & Burger House, the East Dallas restaurant/bar on Peavy by Matt Tobin and Josh Yingling of Blind Butcher, has pressed the reset button on its menu.
Tobin and Yingling say this change comes at the request of their best costumers, and Chef Eric Salome, formerly of the Omni Hotel Dallas and a graduate of DCT International Hotel and Business Management School in Vitznau, Switzerland, made it happen.
“During the past several months, Eric has worked closely with myself and Josh on developing a new menu,” Tobin explains, “making sure we didn’t depart from what the goodfriend menu is all about — high quality meat, bread and fresh ingredients put together in a creative way and prepared with an attention to detail.
“There are still plenty of old favorites mixed in with creative new recipes. We are headed in a little more of a seasonal direction with the food and bar program than we were prior and have added more vegetarian options as well.”
They’ve also released a line of new craft cocktails and an updated wine and beer list to complement the food changes.
But here’s what we really want — food pictures. Enjoy.
