Last night we went for dinner at the Wine Vault and Bistro. The usually do wine pairings, but last night was Belgium Beer and it was excellent. The menu started with cold corn soup, basil oil, red pepper gelee and pickled corn. Next up was an African prawn with asian flavors, a tempura soft shell crab, braised lamb shank, pork tenderloin, all followed by a smoked chocolate mousse and salted caramel. Each dish accompanied by a 4 oz pour of Belgium beer. I was the nights designated driver so I had tastes of each. The food was excellent and the ambiance is nice, although tends toward being a little loud.
I dressed appropriately witih my Stella Artois earrings beaded for me by Kelly Angeley. Aren't they excellent!
