Loeb Properties issued a press release this morning announcing that a lease has been signed for Schweinehaus, a German restaurant that will go in the former Paulette's site in Overton Square.
From the release:
A lease has been signed at 2110 Madison Avenue in Overton Square for Schweinehaus, a restaurant by Chef David Scott Walker featuring Bavarian cuisine with a local flare. Touting the tagline “A Celebration of Pork and Bier,” Schweinehaus will offer full table service by wait staff in Germanic dress and communal, handmade wood tables in the style of a classic Oktoberfest beer hall. …
Walker aims to source as many ingredients as possible from local purveyors. The beer selection will offer an equal mix of traditional Bavarian beers and locally made brews. “The focus will be to bring guests together through sharing tables, telling tall tales over a liter of lager and enjoying a grilled wurst or a hot pretzel,” says Walker. “We aim to provide an atmosphere that feels like Germany in Midtown Memphis.”
The restaurant is slated to open in late summer.
