Drink pairing tips

  • The ideal pairing for porterhouse

    When having porterhouse, experts suggest you pair it with a glass of Old Fashioned, a popular cocktail.

  • Cabernet Sauvignon with your New York strip

    A nice red wine that will bring the most out of the rich flavors of your New York strip would be Cabernet Sauvignon.

  • Go for Syrah with ribeye

    To elevate your ribeye experience, we recommend some Syrah to go with your dish. This pairing works especially well because this red wine provides a counterpoint to the richness of the marbled meat.

Did you know?

  • Full of prime rib

    Are you a fan of prime rib? The current record for eating the most prime rib is 23 pounds! Do you love prime rib enough to beat this record?

  • A delicious pairing

    If you’re gonna be eating steak, then we’d advise washing it down with a nice tea.

  • The priciest dish

    If you have recently won the lottery, or you just happen to have $300 lying around, why not spend it on indulging in the world’s most glamorous, and most expensive, olive wagu beef?
