Landbrot Now Planning April 1 Opening at 185 Orchard

Posted on: March 26th, 2012 at 6:09 am by

Green-and-black branded teaser signage in the windows of 185 Orchard Street has been promising the arrival of Landbrot for months.  But not much else.  Word first dropped last year about this new bretzen biergarten concept, an establishment helmed by two telecom executives (KabelWelt) – Volker Herrmann and David Rothe – from Germany.  This Lower East Side location, though, is playing second fiddle to the much larger sibling flagship planned for the West Village at 137 Seventh Avenue.  Both Landbrot outposts are allegedly timed to launch simultaneously with menus boasting wursts, soups, salads, pretzels, and baked goods.

According to Diner’s Journal, the opening date is now set for April 1, which is nearly a year later than the initial goal.

Management still requires a beer and wine license from the SLA, but has already withdrawn their applications from CB3 so many times in the last six months, it’s hard to keep track.  However, assuming they get the go-ahead for 185 Orchard, the Landbrot duo will allegedly be the only city establishments serving Bavarian microbrew Höss Bier.
