Weekly Food Special: Sweet and Sour Roast Pork with Wilted Greens and Onion Roti
Beer of the Week: Domaine DuPage, French Style Country Ale from Two Brothers Brewing Company Illinois.
Not a beer style ventured into by many American brewers. A crisp-looking ale, clear brassy color with a tight, tiny-bubbled lacing. A godly aroma of shortbread, mild spice and wildflowers blow all expectations out of the water. Malty on the palate, a bit biscuity with grassy flavor of the French countryside and baked apples. Herbal hop flavor and a small measure of bitterness lingers at the end as a spring ale should. Super tasty and smooth, great for pairing with this week’s stinktastic cheese of the week Mt. Saint Francis.
Cheese of the Week: Mt. Saint Francis
Mt. Saint Francis is a washed rind goat’s milk cheese from Capriole Farms on the Kentucky-Indiana Border. Capriole is one of the oldest dairy farms in the U.S and they produce a great nutty, briny semi-soft and goaty with a Kentucky kick. $9 with fruit and pickles…even better with our Beer of the week the Domaine DuPage from nearby Illinois.
Art Facts: “Job, Barcelowsky, and Burris” opened last week and it was great. Make sure to come check it out. During gallery hours you can peruse a portfolio filled with affordable artwork which did not fit on the walls but HAD to be a part of the show.
Urban Art: On a little street South of Delancey on Norfolk (where you sort of fork onto Delancey to get on Willy-B Bridge), there’s a sign that looks like it once said “Construction Ahead” that has now been covered with a drawing/painting of a window in front of bricks. Pretty beautiful.
