Dog Haus Biergarten coming to Bethesda
You'll be able to build your own skinless, all-beef hot dog, or choose from one of their signature Haus Dogs, including the bacon-wrapped Downtown Dog, the Free Bird turkey dog, or President Trump's personal favorite, the Scott Baioli, with smoked bacon, garlic aioli, white American cheese, and caramelized onions.
Hand-crafted sausage selections will include kielbasa, currywurst, spicy Italian and chicken fontina. Signature sausages with toppings range from the pastrami and melted mozzarella on spicy Italian "The Fonz," to the even spicier "Another Night in Bangkok," featuring Thai peanut sauce, Haus Slaw, and crushed peanuts atop a spicy Thai currywurst link.
Burger choices include The Freiburger, and The Hangover. Their beef patties are a proprietary grind of chuck and brisket. The retro menu item names extend to the side options, such as The Love Boat, which is your choice of fries or tots, topped with Haus Chili and Haus Slaw.
Dog Haus Biergarten, true to its name, will offer a rotating selection of local craft brews on tap. Other beverage choices will include wine, shakes, floats and soft drinks.
The Parva building has been vacant since the lounge closed in January 2016, one of 10 nightspots to close in downtown Bethesda since Montgomery County Councilmember Hans Riemer's so-called "nighttime economy" initiative ended up wiping out a large chunk of nightlife. Neighbors who complained about the loud music of The Parva in the night will be delighted that the new tenant is going in a restaurant direction, as opposed to being a nightclub.
Dog Haus will compete with the homegrown Bold Bite, which is moving to a new location at Cordell and Norfolk Avenue next week. This will be the first Dog Haus Biergarten east of Colorado, and is part of a major expansion plan for the chain.
