Belgian Beer Pairing Dinner?

aslouie Apr 30, 2009 11:40 PM

My husband and I had a special New Year's Eve dinner in Belgium a few years ago where we had specific Belgian beers paired with each of our 10 course meal. I'd like to surprise him for his 40th birthday with a similar dinner here. Does anyone know of any restaurants in the LA area that specialize in Belgian food and beer?

    If Laguna Beach is in your definition of the LA area, there's Brussel's Bistro.

      Brussels Bistro is definitely your best bet.

      I'm not sure how far you'd want to stretch the notion of "a similar dinner," but J.J. Brewski's in Camarillo did a series of beer dinners in which a chef prepared a number of dishes that were paired with beers from a particular brewery. I attended a couple of these -- a bargain at $45 -- and was very pleasantly impressed. I don't think Brewski's has done one in a while, but you might call them and see if they plan any in the future. http://www.jjbrewskys.com/home.html

        On that note, in October, Old Vine Cafe, in Costa Mesa, offered a beer tasting in addition to their normal wine tasting. They may be able to accommodate you upon request.
