Done and dusted with your tax return? Pre-emptively spend your rebate on this five-course dinner at Dirck the Norseman (who celebrated their 1st Birthday yesterday…happy beer-day Dirck!). The evening starts with a brewery tour to help you work up an appetite, then diners sit down to enjoy five robust courses (menu above) each paired with a different delicious brew from Greenpoint Beer and Ale Co. The meat-heavy menu isn’t so great for veggies, but beer-loving carnivores will be in seventh heaven!
The Brooklyn Brewery Dinner Party Series is back for a second year and this time they’re taking diners on a tasty time travel adventure at all-American tasting room Humboldt & Jackson. Each of their four dinner parties will revisit a specific era in NYC’s culinary history – Niuew Amsterdam, 1820’s, 1920’s, 1980’s. The first dinner party recreates the period of Dutch settlers and includes a rip-roaring four-course dinner each with a rare Brooklyn Brewery beer pairing and is even rounded off with a little pressie for guests to take home at the end. Dishes include clams with sumac butter, and a Dutch ‘hotchpot’ of smoked salt pork and root veg (full menu here). If last year’s series is anything to go by then this will be a brilliant night, especially for die-hard beer enthusiasts.
Spring is the perfect time to celebrate little baby cheeses and Le Fond is doing it in style via a collaboration with Bedford Cheese to bring you a selection of the best young French and American cheeses each tied into a different dish within their four-course spring tasting dinner. Plates include spring crudité with chevre, and Crystal Valley chicken with brie and ramps (Yeah! Ramps are back). Full menu can be viewed here.
