Whitestone will soon be getting a new hotspot where locals can sample German cuisine in a trendy beer garden.

Jägerhaus Gastropub & Biergarten is set to open at 15-16 149th Street this summer at the former site of a Greek restaurant, Exo, which closed earlier in 2015. The spot aspires to serve authentic Austrian and German fare in the style of European biergartens, which serve beer and food at outdoor tables shared between multiple parties of guests.

Culinary veteran Bill Gross is involved with the incoming project, adding a wealth of experience and training to the restaurant’s development team. Gross has worked in major NYC restaurants such as Le Cirque, Eleven Madison Park and Cafe Gray, and is also a graduate of the Baking and Pastry Program at the Culinary Institute of America.

Construction is still underway at the beer joint, which will likely open in the upcoming weeks, and owners have already begun getting the word out on social media with Facebook and Instagram pages although Jägerhaus does not yet have an official opening date.
