Food at Steingarten LA

Heading up to Steingarten LA tomorrow night for the first time,(Wednesday 8/31), for dinner and the the "Pint Nght" with El Segundo Brewing Company. What is the best thing on the menu that will pair with ESBC's IPA?

  1. I don't know about best that is subjective but stuff on the spicy side will pair well with an IPA.
    Lots of sausages and spicy toppings to choose from on the menu.

    1. The Polish sausage will do nicely. I usually order a trio: bratwurst, bockwurst & Polish (or Hungarian) sausages.

      SteingartenLA is a nice establishment.

      1. Follow up: Had a great evening at Steingarten. Ended up eating the sausage platter. You get to choose 3 from their list of 12-15 sausages and multiple toppings. My picks: Hungarian, Elk, and Duck w/bacon. I added carmelized onions and kraut as the toppings. Paired them with the El Segundo IPA, and finished with a Firestone Russian Imperial Stout called Parabola. Two amazing beers, great food and a super cool staff!

          What time were you there and how was the crowd? Did you have to wait for a table or? And what was your cost out the door for your (delicious) sounding meal?

            We got there at around 7pm. No table wait. They were probably half full most of the evening. Tables near the bar were full the whole time we were there with the dining room being more on the available side. The sausage platter was $20. A really nice presentation with toasted baguettes and three homemade dipping sauces, (spicy mustards and curry ketchup). I also tried the parmesan fries served in a stylish cone. Thin crispy shoe strings. Very good. I would say the crowd would be 25-40. A good mix of guys and gals. There seemed to be a lot of beer knowledge in the room. The selection is just amazing. Similar to Congregation in Long Beach. Beers were $5 and up. Out the door, two of us were around $70-75. The Parabola stout was a little more pricey than the IPA.

              Thanks for the detailed response. I will attempt to steer my wife in that direction this long weekend and see what she says.
