What does one do to welcome a new neighbor to the neighborhood? Throw a dinner party!
That's exactly what Wynwood Kitchen & Bar did to welcome Wynwood Brewing Company to the neighborhood. The restaurant adjacent to Wynwood Walls held a four-course dinner, showcasing the talents of both establishments, and Short Order was invited to join the celebration.
Executive chef Miguel Aguilar teamed up with head brewer Luis G. Brignoni to create a tasting dinner, with each course designed around one of Wynwood Brewing's different beers. Chef Aguilar said that working with the beers was a pleasure, and that he enjoyed the challenge of finding the perfect dish to compliment each beer.
Chef Aguilar said that the restaurant would carry the brewery's La Rubia blond ale on tap permanently, with Wynwood IPA, Pop's Porter, and Stiglitz available for a limited time.
When you think of it, a Wynwood/Wynwood pairing makes such good sense. Let's hope there are more in the future.
Shrimp ceviche with roasted tomatoes, red onion, scallion, and corn nuts is paired with La Rubia Blonde Ale.

Grilled skirt steak with corn and black bean salsa and ancho bell pepper couli is paired with Stiglitz Imperial Marzen.
