It’s NYC Beer Week, which means that for the next few days, we’ll all be binge drinking as if our lives depended on it. But why limit your consumption to just drinking it straight out of a glass? Especially since some of our favorite restaurants are using beer as a base for supremely tasty, soul satisfying dishes. We’re talking about the Beer-Brined Pork Chop at Benchmark in Park Slope, the Beer-Battered Barramundi at the Sunburnt Calf in Prospect Heights, and the Beer-Steamed Mussels at Diner in Williamsburg. And you know what’s even better? They all taste great accompanied by an icy cold pint of beer!
