The latest local restaurant to get into the beer dinner game is Southwest D.C.'s Station 4 (1104 4th St. SW), which tonight launches a new Monday night special: three courses with sudsy pairings for $30 per person, plus tax and gratuity.
Granted, the three featured brews aren't all that eclectic. We're talking about mainstream labels Peroni, Pilsner Urquell and Blue Moon. The food menu offers a bit more diversity.
Starters include flash-fried calamari, cream of artichoke and a salmon watercress salad. Entrees feature a choice between beef and lamb pie, grilled salmon, short ribs and ricotta ravioli.
Dessert, meanwhile, is a sorbet duet or mango mousse with chocolate nibs.
Not thirsty for beer? Get the same grub without the pairings for $20.
On Tuesday, The Occidental (1475 Pennsylvania Ave. NW) hosts a $200-per-person three-course meal and carving demo with TV's Adam Richman and noted butcher Pat La Frieda.
Meanwhile, the lead-up to Saturday's Artini fundraiser for the Corcoran Gallery of Art continues with cocktail parties at The Passenger (Tuesday), Againn (Wednesday) and P.O.V. at the W Hotel (Thursday).
