Corner Office bar professionals developed drinks to go with global cuisine

February 21, 2014

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.
