What To Eat Tonight: Short Ribs and Pilsner Urquell at Station 4

The latest local restaurant to get into the beer dinner game is Southwest D.C.'s Station 4, which tonight launches a new Monday night special: three courses with sudsy pairings for $30 per person, plus tax and gratuity. Granted, the three featured brews aren't all that eclectic. We're talking about mainstream labels Peroni, Pilsner Urquell and Blue Moon. The food menu offers a bit more diversity. Starters include flash-fried calamari, cream of artichoke and a salmon watercress salad. Entrees feature a choice between beef and lamb pie, grilled salmon, short ribs and ricotta ravioli. Dessert, meanwhile, is a sorbet duet or mango mousse with chocolate nibs. Not thirsty for beer? Get the same grub without the pairings for $20.

Coming up: on Tuesday, The Occidental hosts a $200-per-person three-course meal and carving demo with TV's Adam Richman and noted butcher Pat La Frieda. Meanwhile, the lead-up to Saturday's Artini fundraiser for the Corcoran Gallery of Art continues with cocktail parties at The Passenger (Tuesday), Againn (Wednesday) and P.O.V. at the W Hotel (Thursday).
