BlackboardEats to host pop-up dinner featuring Walter Manzke at Biergarten in Koreatown
If you're not a BlackboardEats subscriber, you might want to consider signing up on Wednesday. That's when the Web-based restaurant-deal service will send out an offer to attend a $49 four-course dinner prepared by chef Walter Manzke and paired with bottomless pitchers of craft beer from San Diego.
The one-night-only event, which is also being sponsored by Food GPS, will have Manzke popping up in the kitchen of Biergarten in Koreatown. The skilled chef -- who earned rave reviews at Bastide and Church & State -- will prepare beefsteak along with grilled lamb sirloin, lamb kidneys wrapped in apple wood-smoked bacon and burgers on toast with Bermuda onions.
The meat is being supplied by Rocker Bros., a family-owned meat supplier based in Inglewood. Beer choices include Pale Ale or IPA.
There will be two communal seatings on April 10: 5:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. Tickets are limited to BlackboardEats subscribers who click on the special. Clicking used to be free, but now costs $1.
The full menu is after the jump.
