Under the white tablecloth
New York, New York

There's great beer to be found almost anywhere in this city - but at the finest restaurants, it's strictly under the white tablecloth.

At Oceana, one of the reigning stars of seafood cuisine in the US, chef Rick Moonen and his kitchen crew make exquisite food. But there's no beer on the wine list....

So, I asked. And yes, the sommelier managed to find a bottle of Duvel to go with my grilled fish with a chiffonade of spinach (thank you, thank you).

The lesson? Fine dining and beer do go together, but it's only when consumers ask for beer, that more fine beer will be found on the menu.
