Raise a Stein

Anh-Minh Le | August 28, 2017 | Food & Drink Story Eat and Drink

German cuisine is far more than beer and brats; though you can certainly find that on the menu at the sophomore effort by the folks behind Steins Beer Garden & Restaurant—owner Ted Kim and executive chef Colby M. Reade. The newly opened Cupertino outfit joins the uberpopular 4-year-old Mountain View original. While both locations feature the direct-draw beer draft system that allows for optimal and consistent pours, with international and local craft brews available, Cupertino also offers a wine program and full bar that spotlights seasonal cocktails.

Reade’s made-from-scratch menu marries German fare with modern American comfort foods, including freshly baked pretzels; the Steins Burger, composed of dry-aged short rib, brisket and sirloin; and a trio of Sonoma lamb (braised breast, grilled medallion, lamb chop). D-Scheme Studios was tasked with conjuring just the right vibe in the 6,400-square-foot space, which is accented with copper and reclaimed wood. Habitat Horticulture created a verdant living wall—a nod to the biergarten, brought indoors. For those craving that traditional European alfresco experience, there’s a large patio as well. 10088 N. Wolfe Road, #130, Cupertino
