King’s BierHaus in the Heights is ready to host good times

A fun-loving German/Austrian restaurant in the Heights from Hans and Philipp Sitter, the father-and-son team that turned the original King’s Biergarten in Pearland into a smash hit.

The entrance, which is stocked with take-home goods (sausage, jars of mustard) and beer-ready steins, opens to an enormous dining hall – colorful, cheery and set with tables, booths and communal picnic tables.

The 400-seat restaurant also includes a tree- and flower-filled beer garden with hammocks, a fountain and pond, and a live-music stage.

The menu offers appetizers (beer pretzels, smoked wings, Bavarian fried pickles), soups, salads and burgers, plus gourmet sausages (traditional German bratwurst, Polish sausage, cheese sausage, spicy kielbasa and exotic varieties such as elk, venison, alligator, wild boar, rabbit and rattlesnake).

From unicorns to avocado toast, hipster fads jack up food prices

Unicorn toast features bread topped with cream cheese and various food colors or super-food powders swirled in, and Instagram is loving it. Starbucks Corp.’s attempt to tap into the seemingly bottomless appetite for all things unicorn – Frappuccino, anyone? – has sent the cost of the bean within striking distance of a record. “What happened with Unicorn, drove significant traffic, incrementality, awareness, brand affinity,” Starbucks chairman Howard Schultz said on the company’s most recent earnings.
