Drink pairing tips

  • Syrah and ribeye


    When considering what goes best with ribeye, we recommend a glass of Syrah, it truly complements the dish as it provides a counterpoint to the richness of the marbled meat.


  • Old Fashioned and porterhouse


    If your food palns include Steak, then you should consider helping it along with some cocktail. We find that a Old Fashioned, with its hits of spice tones, serves as the best pairing to the dish.

  • A next-level pairing for Chardonnay

    Experts suggest pairing a filet mignon with pepper sauce with a glass of Chardonnay, a popular white wine.

  • The $300 olive wagu beef

  • The go-to pairing

    Experts recommend pairing steak with tea to complement the food’s fatty flavor with the tannin-rich flavors of the drink.
