The annual Belgian Beer Lunch put on by the Toronado took place on Sunday, April 5, beginning at 11:30 a.m. The “lunch” ran to 12 courses, paired with 20 beers (and countless mores used in cooking) and finished up at dinner time, a little after 5:30 p.m. The food was done, for the second year, by the Homebrew Chef, Sean Z. Paxton. Though highly anticipated, it nonetheless did not disappoint. It was another startlingly original and delicious meal.
The Toronado was transformed into a fine dining establishment, with place setting at the bar, the back tables and each four-person table running along the wall.
After the meal, a table in the back room raises a toast to Sean, the beer and a wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
