Roses are red, violets
are blue … Nothing says, “I love you,” like dinner for two and a brew!
We know that Cupid’s
handiwork will be witnessed at many of the restaurants here at The Market Common
– and Gordon Biersch, on the corner of Howard and Nevers streets, is one of
them you’ll want to reserve a table for two at on Valentine’s Day weekend.
I know that love is in
the air at Gordon Biersch because I first met my husband here on a blind “double”
date half a dozen years ago (our booth is the first one on the right at the
bar). But there are myriad other reasons you’ll fall in love with this sweet
Food You’ll Want to Put Your Hands On
Fresh ingredients and
original recipes that roam the world’s cuisines are the eye candy for all the
senses. Brewery Starters like the Southwest Egg Rolls, for instance, add a
little zip to each bite. And you’ll be licking your fingers after an order of
the Ahi Tuna Nachos piled on top of crispy wonton chips.
The regular menu also
features melt-in-your mouth steak and chicken entrees, pasta, flatbreads, tacos
and burgers. February 14-17, Gordon Biersch will be offering a special
Valentine’s Day menu to “Eat & Drink with Your Heart,” featuring sumptuous
calamari, a choice of the Surf & Turf Filet or a Lemon Caper Mahi Mahi
entrée, and Black Forest Chocolate Cake for dessert. For cocktails, shake
things up with a Love Potion Martini.
Add Some Chemistry
a full menu of wine selections and lovely libations, Gordon Biersch boasts a
rare find for many restaurants: a lineup of hand-crafted beers brewed onsite.
Choose one that’s the perfect match for you out of nine options, from the lighter
Golden Export to the dark and roasted Schwarzbier, German for “black beer.”
Hey, Good Lookin’!
there’s the good food and drinks, but Gordon Biersch is the whole package – and
by that, I mean their ambiance is one you’ll want to cozy up to. It’s brew pub
meets metro bistro, with soft lighting and several dining areas to choose from
at high-tops in the bar area, the main dining room closer to the open kitchen
or outside on warmer evenings on their charming front porch that faces the
we’re gearing away from being considered a sports bar atmosphere, even though
many do because of our TVs,” says GM Jessie Leeson. “Now, we make sure no
volume is turned up on the TVs, which creates a better environment, and we
crank up the dinner music.”
also says what makes Gordon Biersch attractive to clientele is that it’s a
place that’s welcoming to all ages, from young and single to families to older
couples and more in between.
