Even though the owners have tried to tell us they aren’t open, ~LEOPOLD’S~, the Austrian-Italian restaurant that moved into the Antica Trattoria space on Polk, is quite open. Based on a few reports and their Facebook page, here’s what we’ve got: an Alpine (Austria/Alto Adige/Friuli-Veneto) menu of hearty dishes like duck crépinettes, wiener schnitzel, and beef shortribs, plus, according to the pics of their curing room, quite the selection of housemade salumi (it has “gasthaus” in its name, which is a German tavern). (Grubstreet has a fuzzy image of the menu here.) So to drink, you can bet there will be beer on tap and wine from Austria, Germany, and Italy (including big glass Spaten boots to drink out of). The décor includes wood wainscoting, some taxidermy, Alpine wood booths, a large communal table, and a cozy back bar. The partners in the project are Klaus and Albert Rainier, the two brothers behind downtown’s Café Metropol. Hours are Sun-Thu 5:30pm-10pm, and Fri-Sat 5:30pm-12am.
