Pitchfork Pretty inches closer to opening on East Cesar Chavez, with the Hill Country-inspired restaurant unveiling its dinner menu. Dishes range from oysters, half chicken which can come fried or barbecue-style, smoked beef ribs and tongue, to lemon ice box pie. Take a look at the full dinner menu below.

While there is no set opening date soon, the restaurant will debut with breakfast-only hours. Pitchfork will indeed open for breakfast and dinner from the get-go. This means bagels, schmears, muesli, potato/egg sandwiches, and other morning dishes.

The restaurant also underwent a bar manager shuffle as well. Chicago’s Ryan Nolan who spent time at Girl and the Goat and Pump Room takes over Pitchfork’s beverage program. He replaces Chére Loris, who came from no-longer Bar Congress.

Nolan rounds out the rest of the team, including executive chef Max Snyder, general manager Alexander Dubey, and owner Seth Baas.

The restaurant is also in the midst of growing a garden behind Baas’ nearby house to source vegetables, herbs, and greens for the kitchen. He bought the East Cesar Chavez property with the goal of opening a restaurant back in 2014. It started coming together last year with a name and focus.
