German classics get a Southern spin from an open kitchen in a stylized beer-hall setting. Funkenhausen is a modern beer hall that serves a soulful mash-up of Southern and Bavarian flavors in Chicago’s West Town neighborhood. Chef Mark Steuer draws on his German heritage and Charleston, South Carolina upbringing to create a menu that reimagines his fondest meals and memories from childhood. The on-tap selection of German beers offers a full expression of styles, while the wine program focuses on food-friendly, under-the-radar gems from the world’s German-speaking regions. Partner Daniel Boyd redesigned the 1920s warehouse and former gym into an expansive dining room and bar, accented by just the right amount of cuckoo clocks and kitsch.
