Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House and Philadelphia Distilling Partner for a Bluecoat Gin Pairing Dinner

America’s favorite gin and America’s favorite steak house are teaming up for one exceptional evening – the Bluecoat Gin Pairing Dinner, which will be held on Wednesday, April 29th, 2015 at 6:30pm at Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House. Del Frisco’s Executive Chef John Stritzinger and Philadelphia Distilling’s Portfolio Manager & Beverage Development Specialist Chris Chamberlain are joining together to design a delicious five-course pairing menu. Each dish has been developed by Chef Stritzinger to pair with a specialty cocktail created by Chamberlain, featuring either Bluecoat American Dry Gin or, Philadelphia Distilling’s limited release of their newest spirit, Bluecoat Barrel Finished Gin.

Guests will enjoy a variety of cocktails such as the Clover Club (a cocktail with a rich Philadelphia history) and Chamberlain’s unique take on traditional drinks, like the Negroni and the Old Fashioned. They will also have the chance to meet the distillers of Bluecoat Gin, special guests Aaron Seyla and Bill Tambussi, who will attend the dinner and provide a behind-the-scenes look into the distillation process of this craft spirit.

“This is an exciting opportunity to allow patrons to explore flavor combinations they may never have examined before,” says Chamberlain, “all while showcasing the wonderful botanicals found within the Bluecoat family of gin.”

Pairing dinner attendees can also look forward to a selection of stellar dishes, such as Coffee Cured Duck and Mini Beef Wellington hors d’oeuvres and a Sea Bass with Roasted Sweet Potato Hash and Vanilla Beurre Blanc for the fish course. Of course, no Del Frisco’s meal would be complete without a delicious steak! For the meat course, Chef Stritzinger is serving his famous Grilled Ribeye with Roasted Red Pepper, Red Bliss Potatoes and Corn on the Cob to pair up with a “New Old Fashioned,” which is composed of Brown Butter-Washed Bluecoat Barrel Finished Gin and Fire Roasted Corn Syrup.

“The flavors in every food course are designed to bring out the best of each cocktail and vice versa,” says Executive Chef Stritzinger. “I am so excited to work with this great local brand to develop a truly unique dining experience for our guests.”

There is limited seating for this special dining event, which is $125 per person. Call 215-246-0533 or email Sales and Event Planner Jessica Kiefer at jkiefer@dfrg.com to reserve a spot today. DelFriscosPairingDinnerInvite
