my beer choice was the chimay tripel trappist ale. brewed in a belgian monastery, the tripel is one of four beers produced by chimay. served in chimay's iconic chalice, the triple trappist is a very drinkable beer. limiting myself to just one was difficult.
to get things started, we began with an order of the fire wings. prepared with crushed red pepper, parmesan, grey salt, basil, and roasted garlic olive oil, the wings were good, but not great. i felt that the spice of the red pepper dominated the palate, and would have liked a bit more flavor besides the heat.
along with the wings, we ordered the onion rosemary foccacia with parmesan cream for dipping. the bread was served warm, and was very good. i would not hesitate to order it again, but with a different dipping sauce, as the parmesan cream was just ok.
with our leftovers boxed and ready to go, we were left to ponder dessert. peel was offering a seasonal fruit pizza or a nutella pizza. we opted for the nutella, which was cooked on the same crust as the pizzas, and topped with the famous hazelnut chocolate spread and marshmallows. the dessert, as you might guess, was reminiscent of a s'more, and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
