In a few short months, John Manion has transformed the menu at Branch 27 to better match their beer list, making the West Town restaurant one of the better relaunches of the winter, even as the chefs begin to question the ongoing embrace of all things pork. Tonight at 7:30 p.m. Manion has crafted a four-course menu featuring pork from Slagel Family Farm and beer pairings from Chimay to kick off Branch 27's monthly beer dinner series.

The menu, which has been split into "chapters" to reflect Branch 27's prior history as a library, will feature pappardelle pasta with ricotta salata in a braised pork ragu (paired with Chimay Red) and porchetta with roasted garlic-whipped potatoes, braised winter greens, pork jus and Chimay Blue. the cost of the dinner is $60, RSVP by calling 312-850-2700.
