Chapman's Eat Market replaces Wunderbar and Pierogi Mountain at 739 S. Third St. in German Village, once the home of the original Max & Erma's.

Chapman’s Eat Market quietly opened Aug. 14 in German Village.

The restaurant, which replaces Wunderbar and Pierogi Mountain at 739 S. Third St., once the home of the original Max & Erma's, brings a new style of scratch cooking to central Ohio.

A few examples: an old-school burger served on a housemade bun, special sauce made from scratch and french fries fried in beef fat, pork fat and clarified butter; lamb shank barbacoa served with green rice, spicy chili chickpea puree, raisins and mint; and spaghetti alla chitarra with mashed tomatoes, eggplant and homemade ricotta.

Even the ice cream is homemade.

Owner BJ Lieberman said carryout service is available only from 5 to 9 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. The restaurant is closed Sundays and Mondays.

Lieberman said he’s working on a plan to offer dine-in service. 

He said the menu covers a lot of territory, including gluten-free, vegan and dairy-free options. Alcohol to go is available at Chapman’s, he said.

“We want to have something for everyone.”
