Surviving Valentine's Day: Frysmith's 4-Course Dinner & Beer Tasting at Verdugo Bar
Whether you love it or hate it, Valentine's Day is reality that many of us have to face. To that end, LAist will be highlighting various things to do during the holiday weekend (remember, V-Day is on Sunday), from restaurants to events to dances. We began the series with the Zombie Prom and today, we bring you an idea from the Twittering food truck Frysmith.
Chef Erik Cho may be a master of french fries, but that's not all he has up his sleeve. Come Valentine's Day, he's putting together a skilled menu and throwing a laid back event that will be nice for singles, couples or just friends hanging out, at one of the best upcoming bars in town, the Verdugo Bar in Glassell Park.
For $23 or $28 (pre-sale or at the door), Cho and the bar are offering a four-course meal with a beer tasting. The menu consists of a Butternut Squash Soup with Coconut Milk, Habanero & Chickpea, Seared Sea Scallop With Spanish Chorizo, Lemon Jam & Apple "Fries," Duck Legs Braised in Cognac Ume Tomato Sauce w/ Collard Greens & Fries and a Trio of Mousse Cake.
To catch Frysmith out on the streets, follow them on Twitter at @Frysmith.
