Matt Tobin and Josh Yingling, the two good friends behind Goodfriend Beer Garden and Burger House, are opening a new concept on Lower Greenville that will focus on house-made meats and craft beer.

"With the addition of Trader Joe's, the food truck park, and several restaurants, there is a renaissance taking place on Lower Greenville," says co-owner Matt Tobin. "We're excited to be a part of the area's revitalization."

The Blind Butcher will take over the former Service Bar space at 1919 Greenville Avenue. The area has certainly experienced a revitalization of late: In addition to the spots Tobin mentioned, there are already a handful of new restaurants (Jack's Southern Grill, Nora, Qariah) and existing ones -- Teppo, Company Café, and The Libertine, in addition to others -- that go great with the neighborhood.

Tobin and Yingling have tapped former Village Marquee sous chef Oliver Sitrin to run the kitchen and develop the menu, which will feature house-made sausage, pastrami, corned beef and the like. The spot will also serve as a commissary for the friends' other project, Goodfriend Package Store, which is expected to open across the street from Goodfriend Beer Garden later this year.

And while one might think a Blind Butcher shan't drink much, there will be 20 beers on draft with European, American and local beers all getting a bit of representation, all served on two patios and plenty of communal seating.

I have no dog in this fight, but it would be refreshing to see people put together a business plan and do something to improve the neighborhood instead of just pissing and moaning about what is and is not needed.

As I live very close to lower Greenville, I for one am very happy to see how this area has been developing and, what we can expect to see later this year.

@Sharon_Moreanus A lot of neighborhoods in Dallas need more retail. How about a bike shop (why there's no bike lane on Lower Greenville beats me)? The Montrose neighborhood in Houston has cool stuff going on, which is what Lower Greenville and Deep Ellum for that matter need more of.

Yeah, enough the interesting places to eat and drink.  That's like all you people talk about on this blog.

@Sharon_Moreanus What do you want in such a small place?  if you're looking for expansion, try Frisco, I hear it sucks up there.

@blakewilsontx anything but another restaurant. It's been years since I've been to Frisco-no thanks! I live in 75204 and not selling my house.

@Sharon_Moreanus I agree, but it's hard to think what type of non-restaurant/bar would thrive in that area. I'm in 75206, so I too suffer the same fate.  Look at the Gaston/Abrams area. How many small "non food" retail establishments have been there for more than a decade? Not many.  I'd like to see the pawn shop and the check cashing place make their way up Gaston to Garland Rd where it belongs and perhaps something "better" replace them. What "better" is still eludes me. Maybe a small hardware store, like the Lakewood Ace. A barber shop would be awesome, not a salon, but a barber shop.
