DBGB tonight--recommendations?

Birthday dinner for two at DBGB tonight. I know it's received mixed reviews, but what are strong dishes that we should hit? Also, the birthday boy likes beer, particularly pale ales, should there be particular gems on that front, too. Thanks.

    I went on Friday. The fall squash soup was amazing. The sausages are great. I liked the chorizo but the beaujolaise was my favorite (we did a sampler). I wasn't a huge fan of the braised skirt steak I had for my main dish.

    Beer wise, they have some awesome selections. If he wants a pale ale, the Ommegang Hennepin is pretty tasty and relatively inexpensive compared to some of the other selections they have on the menu. Get adventurous with the list though. Enjoy!

      The sausages are definitely DBGB's strong suit. We had the Boudin Basque and the Tunisienne (merguez). Both excellent.

        Agreed, we enjoyed our sausages and burgers (the Frenchie) more than the fancier mains.

        The pig's foot is excellent if you like that sort of thing. Sausages are also great. I don't think the mains are anything special though.
