Daniel Boulud's DBGB Kitchen and Bar in Downtown New York is holding a celebration of Cinq de Mayo with its own blend of flavours to mark the anniversary of Mexico's defeat of French armies during the Battle of Puebla.
"Our 'Cinq de Mayo' menu features four courses, each paired with a Mexican libation: classic refreshing palomas made with fresh-squeezed lime juice, beer aged in a liquor barrel to impart the smokiness of Mezcal into an already delicious local craft pale ale from the Bronx, and of course, Negra Modelo."
In this twist of flavours, you can expect to see the following:
CEVICHE DE CAMARONES
grilled corn, black beans, avocado, jalapeno, lime
Paloma, tequila, grapefruit soda, lime juice
TAMAL DE MOLE
smoked chicken, queso fresco, crema
Mezcal Barrel Aged Bronx Black Pale Ale
CHILIES EN NOGADA
braised pork shoulder, poblano, walnut crème, pomegranate seeds
CHURROS DE CAMOTE
chocolate, salted caramel, coconut & pumpkin dipping sauces
Moody Tongue Brewery 'Caramelized Chocolate Churro Baltic Porter'
