The Smith & Wollensky Restaurant Group, Inc.(SWRG), a collection of iconic American steakhouses, is celebrating the spirit of the Irish with the return of their ultimate Steak & Whiskey Event, taking place March 17 (St. Patrick’s Day) through April (while supplies last). This year during the Steak & Whiskey Event, Smith & Wollensky will showcase Jameson® Black Barrel Irish Whiskey inspired cocktails and a specialty 30-day whiskey-aged Double R Ranch USDA Prime Bone-In New York Cut Sirloin.
Known for its on-site dry-aging process, the steakhouse team is taking one of Smith & Wollensky’s most popular cuts, wrapping it in a Jameson Black Barrel Irish Whiskey-soaked cheesecloth, and aging it for 30 days to create a unique whiskey-infused flavor within this signature dry-aged cut. Charring is an age-old method for invigorating barrels to intensify the taste and with Jameson Black Barrel, bourbon barrels receive an additional charring. The select double charred barrels produce a whiskey with even richer flavor and intense smoothness.
“The team is excited to partner with Jameson Irish Whiskey this year for our annual Steak & Whiskey Event,” said Vice President of Culinary Operations Matt King. “Now in year four and back by popular demand, this is a dining experience that our team looks forward to creating each year and has become an annual tradition for our guests as well. And since we are launching our specials on St. Patrick’s Day this year, it’s also a festive feast for our guests to enjoy while celebrating the luck of the Irish.”
Now aging in Jameson Black Barrel Irish Whiskey, this select Double R Ranch USDA Prime Bone-In New York Cut Sirloin is priced at $68 and will be available in a limited quantity. In addition to the whiskey-aged steak, Smith & Wollensky will also feature the following Jameson Black Barrel beverage specials:
- Whiskey Smash (Jameson Black Barrel, mint, mixed berries, lemon, simple syrup), priced at $17.
- Peach Ginger Cooler (Jameson Black Barrel, Crème de Pêche liqueur, peach puree, lemon, simple syrup), priced at $17.
