Chapman's Eat Market brings scratch cooking to German Village
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.”
