Chef @jamilkabm’s empanada is a proud symbol of her Puerto Rican heritage on every plate. Born and raised in Puerto Rico, Jamilka leaned to cook empanadas as a child, long before she even contemplated her future as a Chef. And, when you have one, its mastery of simple, comforting flavors will take you back to your own childhood. The delicate, flaky, fried dough yields gracefully to a filling of warm and comforting ground beef and American cheese. The flavorful beef isn’t “spicy” or “hot.” Instead, like most Puerto Rican food, the Empanada relies on delicate and thoughtful flavors without creating a four-alarm-fire in your mouth, making it accessible to kids and adults alike. These pockets of beefy, cheesy goodness are the perfect companion for just about any beer, but are particularly nice with Pilsners and pale ales.
-.- Empanada got you catching the Puerto Rican food craze? Check out our next door tiki bar @hiddenharborpgh, where Chef runs an all-Puerto Rican menu to go with the Caribbean-rum cocktails and tropical vibes.
Tonight! The talented brewers from RaR (Cambridge, MD) are in town collaborating on a beer with our friends from Grist House. We couldn’t let them pass through town without serving some of their beer after the brewing is done. So join us at five, when we’ll have four beers from RaR and four beers from Grist House on tap, while we kick back and relax with the brewers after their brew day.
That “S”: DIPA, 8.5%
Dropping Anchor: Sour IPA, with strawberries, peaches, and lactose, 6.8%
Pineapple Grenade: IPA, 7.6%
My Eyes Hurt: DIPA, 8.2%
Our wine director @max8well8 is serving up Garnacha with a side of handsome from behind the bar this evening! This Aragon-region, Spanish wine — which is sustainably grown — shows off the full body and fruit perfumes of this late-ripening varietal.
If we’ve one thing in five years, it’s how to promote an event under two hours before it begins. Some good beers on tap (and even better reasons to celebrate) this evening. Congrats to @brewgentlemen @gristhouse and @hitchhikerbrewing on five years and see you tonight.
GOAT draft list by our sibling bar @loreleipgh. Kolsch starts flowing there at 3 pm.
