Hill Country-inspired restaurant Pitchfork Pretty makes its East Cesar Chavez debut today, Thursday, June 8, starting with breakfast from 7 to 10:30 a.m. for now. Chef Max Snyder's morning cafe menu will include bagels, rotating museli, potato/egg/cheese/fermented pepper sandwiches, and more.

When dinner begins on Wednesday, June 14, the menu will span appetizers like raw oysters, cornbread, yucca dumplings, and beef jerky, to heartier entrees like chicken two ways (fried or barbecue), smoked beef tongue, spaetzle, and more, based on Eater’s sneak preview of the dinner service.

The A-frame building includes an open kitchen with a giant hearth, on-site garden, plenty of patio space, mesquite trees, and large parking lot. Eater took a quick look inside, see below for more photos.

Snyder, who helms from San Francisco's Old Bus Tavern, fills out the rest of the Pitchfork team, which includes owner Seth Baas, beverage manager Ryan Nolan, and general manager Alexander Dubey.
