Next week, Pilsener Haus, a giant beer garden and restaurant from one of the founders of Williamsburg's Radegast, will open over in Hoboken with chef Thomas Ferlesch at the stoves (and grill). The expansive space, easier to come by once you cross to the other side of the Hudson, spreads out over 10,000 square feet and includes an outdoor beer garden, an indoor "wintergarden," a beer garden and a stage for live music acts.
Ferlesch, who first made a splash in Manhattan by earning three stars from the Times for his work at Cafe des Artistes, opened Thomas Beisl eight years ago in Fort Greene and put it on the market last year. At Pilsener Haus he'll be serving a menu of charcuterie, grilled meats, wiener schnitzel, soft pretzels, meatloaf, mussels, and a variety of Bavarian specialties. It's set to open to the public on August 12. Take a look at the space and the menus above.
