Sat Night Date Night

Jay and I are going to a dinner event tonight at one of our favorite places so we decided to call it a "date night" :-)  Pie Whole, who normally serves pizza and pasta, is becoming known for their Belgian beers that they carry. Awhile back the decided to do a "Belgian Beer Experience" and it was such a hit, they decided to do it again, so this time Jay and I signed up. They close the restaurant to the public so only tickets holders can come and as of two nights ago they only had one seat left.

It's a five course meal, each course paired with a particular beer. The menu sounds wonderful. I know Jay will love the beers, I hope I do to. Here's the menu:

Troubadour Abscura mile stout
Five onion soup topped with crostini and Gruyere

Brugse Zot
Arugula and frisee, proscuitto ham, candied cashews, roasted beets, and blood orange vinaigrette

Wittkerke Belgian White
Wittkerke steamed P.E.I. mussels with celery, onion, shallot, butter and curry

Kapittel Watou Pater
Duck leg confit with fennel risotto, and pistachio brown butter

Happy Ending
Popperings Homel Ale
Port poached pear stuffed with mascarpone

That is really neat! We all need more date nights. How was the food? Probably could have put ya in a beer barrel and rolled the two of you out of there, hahaha. Coincidence, I am making french onion soup with bagette with gruyere cheese today. As much as I loved that cheese, I had to go look at the package to see how to spell it, LOL. Thanks for the post, I love food porn!
