A sneak peek of Bronwyn in Somerville's Union Square. The restaurant plans to open May 15.

Union Square already has fancy cocktails, delicious donuts, fine dining, and craft beers. All it was missing was a destination for sausage, pretzel, and Pilsner fans.

Joining a string of buzzworthy hot spots in Somerville's Union Square is Bronwyn, a restaurant and bar from the owners of T.W. Foods in Cambridge.

Husband-and-wife duo Tim and Bronwyn Wiechmann own the restaurant, and Tim is the restaurant's chef. They plan to pay homage to their German roots by serving food and drink inspired from the region, according to a press release. Menu items include Bavarian sausages, riesling sauerkraut, and foie gras.

This new spot has the potential of joining the already flourishing nightlife scene of Union Square. It plans to offer Eastern and Central European beers, but local beer fans don't fret -- American beers that are brewed in the European style will also be available. Craft cocktails, wines from central Europe, and schnapps will also make up the drink menu.

The decor will include velvet seating and iron chandeliers (belonging to Wiechmann's family). Oh, and, in true European style, there will also be a biergarten open from 5 p.m. to midnight, weather permitting.

While Bronwyn opens May 15, you can start making reservations on May 11. 255 Washington St., Somerville,
