The New W.A.B. Menu Made our Taste Buds Dance

Last week Christie and I attended a launch party for a new app called Tastemade. This app enables you to make a short one minute video when you are out to eat to share with your friends, family and followers. It is a new way to bring your friends to the dinner table with you.

The launch took place at one of Ferndale's most famous eateries, The Woodward Ave. Brewery. For years this bar/restaurant has been known for brewing up its own beers and serving up some great food, but about 8 months ago they said out with the old and in with the new. They closed down shop and relaunched with an an entirely new menu that was curated by Chef Brent Foster. This new menu was based on an old American staple, pizza and beer, but they do it with a gourmet twist. At the Tastemade event we were able to sample some savory and some sweet treats and we were  more than pleasantly surprised with the spread.
The spread included The Supreme Clientele pizza which features pepperoni, prosciutto, smoked mushrooms, red onions, black olives, red sauce and mozzarella cheese. They also had another pizza  called Smells like Florentine Spirit that was topped with smoked chicken, mushrooms, spinach, pesto, and feta. They had a sandwich called The Mary Moon, that included zucchini, artichoke, roasted red pepper, asparagus, pesto, and goat cheese. They also had a special salad called Killer Tomatoes which featured smoked tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, basil pesto, balsamic glaze, and greens. Desserts included dark chocolate stout cake and a cheese cake topped with strawberries. Drink specials included two beers, one called Custom Blonde and the other was called Burke's Maple Brown. I tried a sample of everything and went up for a second round of the Smells like Florentine Pizza. The pizza and the cheesecake were my favorite two items of the night, and that says a lot because I am not a dessert person, I am usually a carb whore.

I made a quick Tastemade video while I was at the event so that I could share my experience with all of you. Check it out below!

I tried the new menu when it was first released and I liked it, but it is very obvious that Chef Brent Foster plans to continue to up his game because this spread was simply divine. I mean, I liked the cheesecake so much that I couldn't even remember what the name was when I was making the video, I just new that I wanted to eat it! I love this app, I love this resturant, and I had a great time at the party. Kudos to everyone invloved. If you are in the Ferndale area stop in for some pizza and beer that you cannot get anywhere else!
