Lower Greenville Avenue can’t seem to do anything wrong. It’s crazy great how this part of town keeps getting better. Almost Veggie people may hesitate before agreeing to have lunch or dinner at Blind Butcher. This hesitation can now be a part of the past since you are presently reading this informative article.
The exciting news for non-meat people of the world is this: Blind Butcher always, always has something for vegetarians. The same guys who own Goodfriend Beer Garden are behind Blind Butcher, along with Tony Bricker, Ryan Chaney, and Oliver Sitrin. These guys are obviously into meat, yet care enough for the goodness of the sometimes forgotten— vegetarian.
Everyone knows the best beverage to pair with sausage is beer and needless to say… we are pretty big on beer. We have worked really hard to curate a beer list that is very representative of the best in local craft, national craft and international offerings. We have 24 drafts and over 50 bottles.
Before dining begins, it’s best to start with a beverage. Reading up on Blind Butcher revealed interesting information about craft beer. This beer we call craft is an example of intimidation at its best. What about people who grew up in South Carolina during the 80s with Bud Light, Miller Lite, and the dreaded Budweiser? Transitioning into a world filled with craft beer is challenging.
Trying to be cool is tough at times, especially when bartenders uncover secret inner nerdness after ordering a beer that isn’t cool. What is up with craft beer aficionados? A person has to love beer for the information to register with the craft beer part of the brain. Not loving beer means uncontrollably zoning out when craft beer bartenders try to explain its definition in detail. Paying attention needs to happen to overcome an obstacle of this size. Google can’t even help.
Please, do not walk into Blind Butcher and order a Miller Lite. No one likes this kind of ordering inside buildings with cool craft beer. Don’t do it. The closest feel the non-cool population can feel is by ordering none other than sparkling wine in a can. That’s right. This can, filled with bubbly, has the ability to bring on an American-Idol-finale type of happiness.
The spin Blind Butcher throws on their on-the-menu vegetarian dish makes the world a better place. There’s a feeling of piece knowing the Ratatouille Tower with eggplant and roasted zucchini is securely located on a printed menu. It’s like the menu is making a promise that cannot be broken. We can only hope this tower of complete tower glory never goes away.
Whether beer or sparkling wine, Blind Butcher is a force to be reckoned with. They’ve created a different vegetarian option that was 100% solid three out of three times. Every vegetarian in Texas can visit this restaurant without fear of having to order three or four sides to create a desperate—> side-entrée. This happens to us all the time, right? Meat-people do not know this part of our lives. Feel the pain before daydreaming about the eggplant parmesan masterpiece pleasantly placed above. Everything I do, I do for you. Pause.
Blind Butcher is now a forever favorite go-to for vegetarian entrées that never disappoint. Hipster or not, the overall message is there’s nothing more important than making sure everyone leaves happy– even vegetarians.
