UPDATE: Bites received an email this morning from Tina Tackett, sales manager at Ruth's Chris Steak House on West End, saying the beer dinner with Yazoo won't take place tonight: "We have had to postpone our Yazoo Beer Dinner scheduled tonight due to a poor response. We must have scheduled it too close to Thanksgiving!! We will be rescheduling it in February and will let you know the date as soon as it is confirmed. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes!"
There are few things in life more satisfying to me than a great beer and a well-cooked steak. I rarely go out to steakhouses, because I cook meat exactly the way I like it at home on a probably too frequent basis. But every now and again an event catches my eye that might just cause me to put the ol' Green Egg in cold storage for awhile.
Tomorrow night, Wednesday, Nov. 20, Yazoo Brewing Company is joining forces with the meatmeisters at Ruth's Chris at Loew's Vanderbilt for a beer dinner. Starting at 6 p.m., you can enjoy a three-course dinner plus dessert, all paired with beers from Yazoo for $59 per person including tax and tip. Here's the menu:
First course - Spicy Lobster and Calamari paired with Yazoo Hefeweizen
Second Course - Louisiana Seafood Gumbo paired with Yazoo Hop Project
Third Course- 6-ounce Filet with a scallop on Polenta cake, with red beans and rice and our signature mushrooms paired with Yazoo Dos Perros
Dessert - Mini Chocolate Sin Cake with Fresh Berries paired with Sly Rye Porter
If you're interested in attending, call 320-0163 to hold your spot at the table.
