Rhubarb and beets at Luksus
On July 16th, Brooklyn’s most ambitious beer bar reaches for greater heights—chef Daniel Burns unveils Luksus, a tasting-menu restaurant in the back of Greenpoint brew juggernaut Tørst. A vet of some of the globe’s highest-profile kitchens, including Noma, the Fat Duck and Momofuku (he’s the former R&D head), Burns rockets past moules frites and Belgian suds with his beer-pairing fare: vinegar-powder-dusted ham chips; raw razor clams with bone marrow, radish and cucumber vinaigrette; and a rhubarb-beet dessert featuring woodruff meringue and pea-and-anise-hyssop sorbet. For beverage pairings, there’s nary a wine list or cocktail menu in sight in the oak-paneled dining room—all courses are served exclusively with beer from the white-marble bar, curated by Tørst’s owner, legendary gypsy brewer Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergsø. 615 Manhattan Ave at Nassau Ave, Greenpoint, Brooklyn (718-389-2525)
