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.

  1. 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.

    1. 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.)

      1. 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.

        1. Ive never been but i frequently get emails about beer dinners and pairings at The Ginger Man New York

            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:
