Ever wondered which cocktail to pair with your Korean takeout or European comfort food? Chef Rich Byers and beverage director Ben Anderson at The Corner Office Restaurant + Martini Bar in The Curtis Hotel in downtown Denver, have the answers.
Byers, Anderson and the rest of the culinary team regularly take guests on a multi-cultural journey with dishes and drinks inspired by various countries around the globe. Now, they are helping guests choose the best sips to wash down each regional cuisine:
- Mexican – Byers recommends pairing his Baja Fish Tacos with the “Just Another Goat Rodeo” cocktail (Milagro silver tequila, Liquor 43, blackberry, pepper, honey and lime).
- Korean – The restaurant’s Bibimbap pairs well with the” Starlight” cocktail (St. Germain, Leopold’s Absinthe, lime, mint + ginger beer).
- France – A dish as hearty as The Corner Office’s Steak Frites will complement the masculine elements of the TCO Manhattan (Buffalo Trace Bourbon, Carpano Antica Formula and Campari; aged in-house in 10 liter barrels for three weeks).
- Southern USA – The Templeton Sazerac (Templeton Rye, Demerara, Peychaud’s bitters and absinthe) with an order of a southern classic, shrimp and grits.
