Birthday Weekend- Sour'd in September & the Nomad

The birthday weekend continued on Saturday with a trip to Captain Lawrence for their sour beer festival.  I hadn't been to the new brewery since it moved and the space was amazing. So much room!  And what a well run festival; no lines, good food and tons of great breweries all pouring delicious sour beers.

We stayed there all afternoon then hopped back on MetroNorth to the Nomad Bar for a casual dinner.  We got a table on the 2nd floor overlooking the dining room below which was fantastic for people watching.

We began with the Bay Scallops marinated with yuzu and pistachio...two of my all time favorite flavors together in one delicious bite.

Then it was onto their incredible Dry Aged Beef Burger with cheddar cheese, onion and a special house sauce. 

This thing is one huge sloppy mess of a meal that I wouldn't pass up any day.

And of course what's a birthday burger without a side of thin, crispy french fries dusted with sea salt and fresh rosemary.

Mr. T got their famous Chicken Pot Pie and it was honestly a bit life chnaging. I hate Chicken Pot Pie but this version was so rich and velvety...OMG I would eat that again in a heartbeat.  The innards were aesthetically unpleasing so no picture but trust me it was amazing.  We had already drank more than enough beers at Captain Lawrence so we moved onto cocktails of course...

...and to finish their delectable Cookies and Cream balls.  An absolutely perfect birthday weekend!
