At Tim Schafer’s Cuisine, Chef Fredy Umanzor dresses up New American dishes with beer-inspired finesse. Acclimate tongues to the change of pace with the Maryland lump-crab-cake appetizer ($12), a pan-fried pescatarian patty accessorized with a dash of chipotle-lime crema sauce, or the thai beef satay ($12), served on skewers with a peanut-barbecue pairing. St. Peter's fish fillet ($24) dons a pistachio-herb coat before taking a dip in a citrus-wheat-beer butter sauce, and the creole jambalaya ($30) brings together the heads of all the protein families, including sea scallops, jumbo shrimp, a trifecta of sausage relations, and tasso ham, and combines their talents with veggies and spices to carry out the greatest taste-bud heist in history. In the Twinkie-led tradition of hiding delicious within delicious, the grilled double-cut pork chop ($28) stuffs wild mushrooms, spinach and smoked gouda inside of the grilled specialty, and sets ale whipped sweet potatoes and sautéed veggies outside to stand guard.
Tim Schafer’s serves up specialties on white tableclothed tables, beneath the glow of candle wall sconces and a thousand aimed laser pointers. Dinner is served seven days a week, starting at 5 p.m.
