I was sitting at Happy Hour at Rock Bottom downtown with some friends. I’m often surprised Rock Bottom has survived the Fountain Square renovation. The construction has made it next to impossible to get to Rock Bottom for over a year. It has definitely meant I don’t go to Happy Hours there as often.
I tend to think of Rock Bottom as a place with decent beer, okay food, and mediocre service. So I was surprised when I saw a flyer for the Chef & Brewer’s Dinner.
We’re going. I have hopes that with a special dinner planned, service will improve. The menu listed is already better than the bar food that I am accustomed to at Rock Bottom. And it’s a great price ($35
Each courses is paired with a particular Rock Bottom beer.
1st Course: Smoked chicken hash with Sweet Red Pepper Sauce and Chipotle Cream
2nd Course: Wilted Baby Frisse with Grilled Portobello Mushrooms tossed in a Honey Bacon Dressing
3rd Course: Hearth Roasted Beef Short Ribs with Stout-Glazed Root Vegetables and Herb Crusted Redskin Potatoes
4th Course: Double Chocolate Cake with Bourbon Scented Whipped Cream and Coffee Sauce
The dinner is Wednesday night, Oct 17, at 6:30 pm. Cost is $35 per person. Reservations are required at 513.621.1588.
