Union Square's latest restaurant addition, Bronwyn, is all set to open today, May 15. We got a chance to take an exclusive first look at the menu, focusing on central and eastern European fare. Note: The names of the entrees are fun to say. You'll see.
Here is what you need to know about the menu:
Sausage. There is a section dedicated to "house-made wurst," or what we call sausage. There are six different choices, including "Zungenblutwurst," which is described as blood, tongue, and pork.
Potatoes. If you're a fan of the starchy goodness, then you'll find plenty of options here. "Mohnnudeln," for example, consists of potato and poppy noodles, salmon gravlax, and creme fraiche.
Doughnut. A dessert item is described as a lemon raspberry doughnut with chocolate sauce, called "Berliner." Its competition? The German chocolate cake, of course.
Pretzel. Or as Bronwyn says, "Bretzel." Grub Street reported chef Tim Wiechmann's attempt to perfect the bread concoction (which comes with roasted apple mustard). If you're not satisfied, oat-honey challah is also available.
Don't forget, there will be a biergarten open for the summer, with a promise of beer (35 different pilsners, lagers, and more offered). Half of the menu comprises of their extensive beer list, wine, and cocktail menu, all with the flavors of central and Eastern Europe.
What do you think about the menu? Do you think the restaurant will fit in with Union Square's bustling nightlife scene? Leave your thoughts in the comments.
Bronwyn is located at 255 Washington St., Somerville. It is slated to open on May 15.
