BSB and Chef Josh Lehman's five-course, fixed price menu for Oaks and Derby.

“One of the grand appeals of the Kentucky Derby is the tradition it carries with it. We pretty much repeat the recipes each year for the sake of carrying on a tradition.”
-- Caroline Harmon

At NABC’s Bank Street Brewhouse, 2010 marks the start of our Derby tradition, and speaking personally, I hope Chef Josh Lehman does not repeat the recipes each year from here out, because that would be boring.

We’ll see. This year, Chef Josh is offering a five-course, fixed-price menu for the Oaks (Friday, April 30) and the Kentucky Derby (Saturday, May 1). Each course will be paired with an NABC beer.

Here are the rules:

The five-course fixed price menu will be available by reservation only on both nights. Reserve in person at BSB, or call 812-725-9585.

The Bank Street Brewhouse will observe normal dining and drinking hours, and we will accommodate walk-ins as space permits, but the special five-course menu will be available from 5:30 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. only.

The price for this feast is $60 per person, service not included. Naturally, you must be 21 years of age to drink beer. The state frowns on exceptions.

Don’t forget BSB’s acclaimed Build-Your-Own Bloody Mary Bar from Noon to 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, May 2.

Kentucky Bibb Salad
Maytag Blue Cheese, Toasted Pistachios, Granny Smith Apples, Champagne Vinaigrette (Tafel Bier)

Diver Scallops
Carrot Mousse, Spring Peas, Chantrell Mushrooms, Lemon Brown Butter (Abzug)

Lamb Loin
Ratatouille, Saffron Risotto, Mint Pesto (Dubbel OR Elector, whichever is available)

Filet of Beef
Crispy Potato, Asparagus, Bourbon Cream Sauce (Bob's Old 15-B Porter)
