Oak Cliff welcomed a new restaurant over the weekend: Kessler Park Eating House, the new concept from Jonathon's Oak Cliff owners Jonathon and Christine Erdeljac, is now open for business. Homestyle cooking in Dallas usually means Southern food, but Chef Jonathon is putting his own spin on things and introducing OC to some of his West Virginian childhood favorites.
So what's on the menu at Kessler Park Eating House? Some pretty insane-looking peanut butter pie, for starters:

Other menu items include country ham with redeye gravy over butter noodles, a Reuben with housemade turkey pastrami on marble rye, hand-cut fries, and deep-fried buffalo cauliflower — not to mention the West Virginian specialty known as pepperoni rolls, a kolache-like pastry stuffed with cheese and cured meat.
Unlike many other area restaurants (including sibling Jonathon's), Kessler Park Eating House is open Mondays; catch them from 4 to 10 p.m. today.
