In the meanwhile. I will keep you guys posted with some cool stuff happening around town.
So the homie David Haskell (all around realist/badass who used to work at Bin8945, Le Cirque, Vertical Wine Bistro) is doing a pop up with Chef Joseph Mahon (formerly of Bastide) at the Glutster favorite, Biergarten.
The menu seems to be partly inspired by the Asian flavors with things like Carrot Curry Pudding, Coconut Soup with mussels, tapioca, cilantro, basil and pistou, Wild Mushrooms, White Soy, Sesame Rice Paper, Fried Chicken with bacon, radish, arugula, celery and buttermilk dressing, Confit Pork Cheeks with béarnaise mouse and a waffle surprise!
The 5 courses will be available for $56 per person. If you're a real hedonist, you'll probably upgrade to the 7 course tasting for an extra $10 more.
But the reason I myself will be going is just to see what the David-meister will pair up this time. I swear, the guy could pair a fitting wine with a bag of Flamin' Hot Cheetoes if he had to. He will have quite the tasty artillery on his side with wine, sake and Neil Kwan's (Biergarten Owner) extensive selection of 20+ craft beers on tap.
His drinks will run the bill an extra $54 (He will pair each course, same price for 5 or 7 course dinners).
Reservations can be made by emailing Neil Kwan at Neilskwon@gmail.com or by calling Biergarten after 4:00pm @ 323-466-4860.
After all, 'tis the season for Splurging que no?
