Sunday Dinner Club does a series of dinners featuring their Cassoulet, a hearty peasant stew with beans and 4 meats. They also collaborate several times a year with Half Acre Brewing for a beer dinner. One of these dinners featured their Cassoulet. I actually went to both a Cassoulet Dinner in their space and the beer dinner at Half Acre Tap Room that featured their cassoulet. The dinner in the SDC space featured an appetizer, salad, the cassoulet, and dessert. The tap room just had the cassoulet and dessert, but everyone got four beers and it was at a lower price point. The dinner at SDC space started with a Celery Root and Potato Pancake with Celery Leaf Creme Fraiche and Pickled Shrimp. I really like Potato Pancakes and this was very good coming with a vegetal tang from the creme fraiche, celery root, and the pickled shrimp. It was really good and I would have happily eaten one twice as large. With the Half Acre Dinner we started with beer. We were able to drink any of the beers featured on their tap list. I started with a With With Belgian Single, but also tried the Pony Pilsener. The Single was a little richer a little sweeter and had a better head than the Pilsener, but The Pony is a nice easy drinking beer that I would call a lawnmower beer, a nice relief on days when you are out doing lawn work.
Both dinners were very good in their own ways and I left both very satisfied. While the presentations were different, the atmospheres at both places were very welcoming and the food itself was fantastic. I will definitely do this again.
