Ms 9 and I have a routine. We`walk to Montien on Stuart..order takeout and have a beer or 3 at Jacob Wirth's. Then pick up dinner.
Great meal of sauteed pork w/sweet basil leaves, rhizome and peppercorns in chili sauce (Thai menu), choo chee curry duck and beef pad ki mow (they call it drunken noodles on the menu). Ordered pet pet and everything was fabulous.
I'm not a big fan of the food at Jacob Wirth's but I like their beer selection and the ambience. Few new belgian beers on tap. They also have some kind of beer club that meets monthly. I didn't participate...other than the bartender giving us a bottle; but everyone seemed to be having a good time. Maybe a nice take for beer lovers.
