Stepping into the Pantry is like stepping into a different world. You’re greeted with a warm ambiance, as well as delicious aromas from the Czech and German Classics that headline the menu.
The flagship location opened its doors in 2009 with owner Tomas Bohm at the helm. The eatery is the perfect place for a date night, food with friends and family, and has even become a drink destination in the past couple of years.
One of the best things about the spot is the consistency. Ever since opening their doors to foodies, the food coming out of the kitchen has been top-notch. The bar program has grown as well, including an original cocktail menu and a fair mix of European beers alongside local and regional craft options.
When perusing the menu, be sure to try out dishes that include Hungarian Sausage and Bratwurst – as they’re housemade. Start with the locally well-sought-after Truffle Deviled Eggs or Bacon Wrapped Dates. You also can’t go wrong with the charcuterie, which includes pates made in-house and a fine selection of cheese and pickled offerings.
The eatery keeps their kitchen open a little later – so you can catch good food after seeing that concert or going to an event. Catch lunch from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and dinner on Monday through Saturday from 4 p.m. until midnight. The bar is a great place to hang even a little after midnight if you’re just wanting a night cap.
