Now open: Barley Swine on Burnet Road

Bryce Gilmore’s exceptional farm-to-table restaurant, Barley Swine, has a new home at 6555 Burnet Road. The restaurant, which seats about twice as many (65 inside and 20 on the front patio) as the original South Lamar location (which setaed 36 and closed on January 2), opened Monday.

Barley Swine, which now features a full bar in addition to its always-solid beer and wine list, serves a tasting menu as well as a la carte shared plates. Come spring, the restaurant will also offer a chef’s table that seats about a dozen located in the restaurant’s garden.

The full bar means a craft cocktail program, which will be helmed by bar manager Robert Strevens, formerly of Blackberry Farms outside of Knoxville, Tenn.

“While we’re moving and expanding, we see this version of Barley Swine as a completely new restaurant. It takes pieces of each iteration of Barley Swine over the years, but is different in so many ways that it should be considered a new experience to everyone,” Gilmore said.

Barley Swine is open Sunday-Thursday, from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. (
