My evening was shared with fellow bloggers Christine from Chritiques, Starr from Chicago Foodie Girl, Douglas from Chicago Pinot, and Mike from Chicago Food Bloggers. We were led on a journey through all aspects of the menu, paired with wine, beer, and cocktails. Our trusty tour guides were Owner and Sommelier Don Sritong, and Chef David Wang.
For starters, we tried three small plates paired with beers. The first was blue lump crab fritters served with a guindilla pepper aioli. I thought these fritters has a nice spice to them, and the sauce was nicely balanced between citrus and sweet. The pairing was Brooklyn Blast IPA.
