torst_nyc We are incredibly excited to open our doors to one of our all time favourite breweries, BFM! On Easter Sunday (April 21st) we will be hosting a four course prix fixe in our dining room along with an optional beer pairing from the inimitable BFM. The dinner will be seated at 6:30pm. We must ask you to be punctual with your arrival time, as the food will begin to be plated at 6:30 sharp. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Tickets for both the dinner and the beverage pairing are available via the link in our bio. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For the unitiated, here is a little background on BFM: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ BFM –– Brasserie des Franches Montagnes –– is a pioneering, independent Swiss brewery based in the small town of Saignelegier, in the Jura Mountain region. Jérôme Rebetez opened the brewery in 1997 and over the last 21 years his brewery has been steadily growing –– with their latest brewery expansion last year –– and his beers continue to garner international acclaim. Rebetez was originally trained in enology before dedicating himself to brewing, which makes BFM's approach to the craft truly unique. Jérôme forgoes brewing conventions and style limitations to create beers that push boundaries with grace and authenticity. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Please note that we will not be accommodating any dietary preferances for this specific dinner but please let us know if a member of your party has any food allergies. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We look forward to hosting you on the 21st for the extra special dinner! See you soon! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thank you to @mjustesenny for the poster design!

On Easter Sunday, BFM will be helping TøRST host a lovely four-course prix fixe dinner. The optional beer pairing will accompany the flavors of the unique brews from Brasserie des Franches Montagnes.
