Restaurant with Beer Pairings?

Apologies if this is in the wrong sub-forum, but this seemed the best place to ask my question.

I was looking for restaurants in the city that do prix-fixe menus that include beer pairings (for a relatively reasonable price - no more than $100 a person). My ideal would be some place that takes is serious about both its food and its beer; Den Dijver in Brugges, Belgium is a perfect example.

If a restaurant does not do prix-fixe menus but is serious about their peer and does at least offer specific recommendations (as opposed to relying upon often-only-somewhat-knowledgeable staff), I'd like to hear about them as well.

      oh interesting! have you eaten at ginger man? i know they have a good selection of beers on tap (as well as whiskys, whiskeys, bourbon), but i don't think i've had anything there other than a chip or two.

      these aren't tasting menus, but maybe OP'd enjoy the suggested beer pairings, here: http://www.gingerman-ny.com/content/v...

      i haven't had that much experience with the restaurant (i've only eaten there three times over the course of maybe two years), but markt in chelsea has a very good beer selection and the staff seems knowledgable about food / beer pairings. there are a few dishes with beer-based sauces that might be of interest.

        I think Cafe D'Alsace does this (though not sure of the prix fixe part). They have a "beer sommelier" person too. I can't say specifics since we've never done that. But we have asked for advice about choosing beers and they have been quite helpful. (Oh, it's on the UES.)

          I've never been, but I've read that Jimmy's No. 43 does bear/cheese and other food tastings. They have a long beer list and may do pairings w/dinner.
