Eddie Huang, owner and chef at the hot new LES restaurant Baohaus, is serving up a special menu for Chinese New Year dinner. Baohaus likes to say they’re “fresh off the boat” and, while Eddie is no neophyte – especially when it comes to the culinary arts – Baohaus is definitely fresh. That’s West Coast royalty ‘fresh’, not throw-a-drink-in-your-face ‘fresh’.
Eddie asked me to offer up some examples of possible beer pairings to accompany his Year of the Tiger prix fixe menu. Next to actually drinking beer, there are few things I like better than talking about beer so I was happy to oblige. Check out Eddie’s blog, the Pop Chef, for the menu and a look at some of my suggestions.
Stop by Baohaus this weekend for a combination Chinese Brew Year/Valentine’s Day celebration. Baohaus is BYOB, so pick out some of your favorites and head to the Lower East Side for some unique dishes and great beer. For a lager, I might suggest Tiger.
