A relaunched Alexander’s Steakhouse and Steins Beer Garden announced plans separately earlier this month to the Cupertino Planning Commission. “I think everybody’s in agreement and is excited about this project, and obviously a lot of care in the architecture and the layout has been taken, so I think it definitely is a great addition,” said commissioner Alan Takahashi.

Upon first glance, you'll notice that Steins isn't your typical watering hole. As you approach, you'll notice a spacious patio area complete with glass-encased fireplace, upscale modern furniture, and a smattering of used wine barrels. The indoor space resembles an airplane hangar, with arched ceiling and long floor-space with large tables that run the length of the room and contribute to a German beer hall-esque feel. Rustic wooden booths and trim give the space a warm touch.

Designed in the style of a European beer hall with 42 feet high cavernous ceilings and communal tables, Steins will serve seasonal, gourmet American comfort cuisine. "What was once a tired, worn-down building has been transformed into a top facility by an award-winning architect, which improves the overall aesthetics of the area and better serves the surrounding community," said Randol Mackley, senior vice president with SRS Real Estate Partners.
