What To Eat Tonight: Corn Pasta & Cider at Birch & Barley

Folks with Celiac disease don’t normally get to enjoy the various beer-pairing dinners at Birch & Barley. At least not without some rather unpleasant autoimmune response. Tonight, though, the beer-centric restaurant is changing things up with a big spread that is entirely free of barley, wheat and other gluten-laden substances, all paired with gluten-free ciders from around the world. Chef Kyle Bailey’s planned menu includes corn pasta with braised tripe, fava bean shoots and chickpeas, as well as a grilled flank steak with poached quail egg and roasted red peppers. Some of the featured ciders, meanwhile, are entirely new to the District. The meal is $73 per person.

Coming up: on Tuesday, Cork hosts its inaugural pig roast while Irish Whiskey conducts free tastings of—what else?—whiskey. And, on Thursday, Agora is the scene of a four-course dinner spotlighting the wines of Georgia's Château Mukhrani.
