That was a quick turnaround. Ludwig Biergarten, which took over the old Johnny Rockets in The Original Farmer's Market on the corner of 3rd and Fairfax, will be ready to open by Sunday following a few rounds of friends and family previews, which they were conducting on Wednesday evening.
The menu itself is pretty eclectic, with a mishmash of pub favorites like sausages, charcuterie, fish & chips, warm potato salad, burgers, and even steak frites. Also, expect a choice of either veal or chicken schnitzel on the menu, served with roasted fingerling potatoes and sage brown butter.
The beer list tends toward the kind of easy drinking German beers that fit in with the concept. There's a pretty sizeable outdoor seating area covered with some charming lights while the interior seats about 30-40. Overall, the inside-outside experience seems to work nicely with the corner perch that Ludwig occupies, though the fare itself doesn't have very lofty aspirations. It's not official but it seems that Thomas Schoos is the person behind the design and operation of the restaurant.
