Steak, yeah!

We recently heard from our friends at Christos Steak House about their new monthly Steak and Scotch Dinner Series, which starts tonight. This is the first in a series so if you don’t make it tonight there will be others. Have you been by Christos lately?

Executive Chef Mina Newman and Senior Master of Whisky Spike McClure are behind this new dinner series, and they are excited to present to steak and scotch lovers in Queens “a taste of Scotland highlands and gastronomic fare.” Each month will feature a different 4-course menu with scotch pairings with each course.

The dinners are couched as an “intimate evening of decadence,” which we know is an appealing hook. The evening stars with cocktails at 6:30pm followed by a four-course dinner. Tickets are $150 each—pricey perhaps, but you can make that judgment after you see the menu (below). The food has been designed to served has been designed to bring out the flavors of each scotch pairing, and DSpike will provide tasting notes—including information on the history of the process behind each scotch poured.

To reserve your spot and more information, head to the ticketing page. Here’s the menu for tonight (descriptions by Christos staff):

  • Smokey Baked Littleneck Clams
    Beautiful briny marine notes with salt and pepper, and a smoky finish pair with any seafood, but especially shellfish, raw or cooked.
  • Spring Asparagus Au Gratin Parm
    With its fresh, herbal nose and sweet, soft palate, Glenkinchie pairs better with asparagus than any wine!
  • Prime Boneless Strip Steak with Bordelaise Sauce
    Rich smoke says “Barbeque!” to every nose and make the mouth water for steak!
  • Honey Vanilla Panna Cotta
    With its floral nose and honey palate, Dalwhinnie is the perfect partner for any dessert!

Christos Steak House is located at 41-08 23rd Avenue in Astoria.
