Most people have been trained to associate red wine with steak. However, as the summer temperatures increase, most wine drinkers gravitate toward lighter wines. Thankfully, Perry's Steakhouse is breaking the mold when it comes to wine pairings with its innovative Tribute to Champagne wine dinner at its Memorial City location. The dinner includes six-courses of fabulous sparkling wines, three of which are paired with - gasp - meat!
Beverage director for Perry's Steakhouse, Susi Zivanovic, was inspired for this dinner when she tried a glass of Bollinger 'La Grande Annee'. It's no surprise considering the great depth and long finish of this full-bodied champagne. The steak and champagne dinner forces patrons to go outside their comfort zone when it comes to wine pairings. The menu showcases a whole range of sparkling wines including cava, prosecco, rosé, and of course champagne.
The food menu for the dinner includes some of Perry's new items such as the steak tartare and chocolate crunch. It also features classic dishes like the pork chop bites and the Chateaubriand served with three signature sauces. The dinner is $150 per person and seating is limited. A few spots still remain for this wonderful event and reservations can be made by calling 832-358-9000.
If you can't make it to the dinner, you can always visit Perry's for their famous Pork Chop Friday's. They've recently added individual sides of creamed spinach and brussels sprouts for just $3.95. Three new signature sodas are available for those unable to partake in alcoholic beverages during lunch. However, for those that can indulge in a liquid libation or two, I recommend trying the Gin Gimlet, one of three new summer cocktails currently on the menu.
