North Park is constantly welcoming new restaurants, bars and shops. Owners of North Park’s classic neighborhood staple, The Smoking Goat, the husband and wife duo, Executive Chef Fred Piehl and Managing Director Tammy Piehl, officially opened the doors to their second highly anticipated restaurant, One Door North, on Friday, April 29. The new American bar and eatery showcases décor and cuisine that pays homage to the great outdoors and the spirit of adventure. The menu is curated by The Smoking Goat’s culinary savant, Chef Fred Piehl, as he pulls inspiration from the overarching concept of discovery coupled with regional influence throughout the U.S. “One Door North was designed with the concept of discovery in mind”, says Executive Chef and Owner Fred Piehl. “As a family, we love exploring the outdoors, and love the inspiration that comes with seeing new places and meeting new people. The idea behind One Door North is to capture that sense of discovery.”
Pulling inspiration from the venue’s overarching concept of discovery and the great outdoors, Executive Chef Fred’s menu draws from influences throughout the United States, offering dishes that are both familiar and unexpected, no matter where guests may call home. Entrees such as campfire trout, slow roasted tri-tip steak, and a Harris Ranch Cheeseburger are complimented by produce-forward small plates including local beet and butter leaf salad with house-made farmer’s cheese, farro and farmer’s market vegetables, and a meat and cheese board.
One Door North provides diners with a playful selection of campfire dessert favorites including s’mores, farm fruit crisps, house-made cookies and more.
One Door North boasts a predominantly domestic beer and wine list, sourced from craft, boutique and classic producers—offering an expansive selection of wines, more than 20 beers on tap, alongside a selection of craft cocktails.
The Bottle Shop, tucked into the back of the restaurant, features a selection of 100 of the best small producers both domestic and abroad, while also offering The Smoking Goat’s namesake private label wines: white, rosé, and red from the small, family owned Chateau de Gravieres winery in Bordeaux, France.
