Since Leander Beer Market opened in September 2014, co-owner Genc Krasniqi has added new food and drink options for customers and plans to open a second location nearby.
“People have given us very positive feedback on the food and the choices of beer and the prices,” Krasniqi said.
Krasniqi said he also expanded the restaurant’s coffee options—despite working from a small kitchen—and added Italian lunch and dinner specials based on menu items from his other restaurant that closed in 2015, Luigi’s Ristorante Italiano.
“We’re doing catering from [the] Luigi’s [menu] from the kitchen of Leander Beer Market,” he said.
Krasniqi said he added a 170-inch TV projector in the bar area and wants to host more live music performances on the restaurant’s back porch when warmer weather arrives.
Krasniqi is also busy preparing a second location for the restaurant in Liberty Hill that could open in late January. He said the new location is a response to regular customers from Liberty Hill who said they would come to the restaurant more often if they had a location closer to them.
