About Nuit Belge

This upscale tasting, now in its fourth year, features the best chefs in New Orleans and Nashville creating unique bites purposely paired with Belgian and Belgian inspired beers.Why beer? Because beer pairs well with just about everything.

A taste of two cities!

Each “Belgian Night” will highlight a dozen of the top restaurants from two hot food cities. Each chef will be presented with two beers and will create purposeful “pairings” for both. Each kitchen will present these distinctive interpretations of bites and beer at Nuit Belge. Patrons can enjoy the pairings or either of its components

Perks of the show

As we’ve said, beer goes well with everything. So, to round off the evenings’ fare, patrons will enjoy chocolate, cheese and oyster bars to balance the palate. There are also select pours at Friends of Rhizome Sessions and The Underberg Nitecap. All in one room.

Cultural Kitchen Exchange Program

New for 2018! Two prominent kitchens in each city will “swap” and visit the other city. This year, we are thrilled to have Issac Toups, Jess Benefield, and Trey Burnette working each each city and delivering a touch of home.

All-inclusive

Patrons receive custom Sahm glassware along with a guide to the selections. Once inside, guests are welcome to walk the room and enjoy unlimited bites and pours.

Why beer?

To many Americans, beer is a low-brow beverage undeserving of a place in fine dining. Our Belgian friends would disagree and have centuries of culinary tradition that includes beer. There is no food that cannot be paired with beer, if you know what beer to choose. Nuit Belge is a showcase of exemplary pairings. Beer has unlimited flavors and textures with which to work. Brewers have long had food in mind as they work their craft. And what the French do with wine, the Belgians do with beer.
