What Food Pairs with Scotch Whisky? At Chicago’s SideDoor, Lots!

It doesn’t seem that Scotch whisky would be a great pairing with food: the spirit is big, sometimes smoky and seems like it could steamroll all but the most powerful flavors.

Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House

Alone among steak restaurants in Chicago, Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House on the Gold Coast offers premium steaks, world class wines…and free jellybeans! Owned by Del Frisco’s Restaurant Group, which also owns the Sullivan's Steakhouse restaurants, the massive Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House resides in a regal 24,000-square-foot space. According to Jeff Ruby in Chicago Magazine, “at Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House, hostesses clad in miniskirts shorter than a tween’s attention span welcome diners to the celebrated Texas-based steak chain’s multimillion-dollar roll of the dice in Oak Street’s revamped Esquire ¬Theater. Their bosses have flooded three stories with Gold Coast excess: an atrium skylight, a fearsome shimmering chandelier, an 85-inch flat screen in the bar. A 47-foot suspended wine tower is so enormous it has multiple entrances, a spiral staircase, and its own system of governmental law.”

That’s a lot to take in before you even get to your seat and take a peek at the menu.

The appetizers do not fail to disappoint and feature many steak house must-haves like chilled shrimp cocktail and jumbo lump crab cake, but where the starter menu exceeds expectations is in the meat-based category. There’s seared rare wagyu beef carpaccio, accompanied by baby arugula/shaved artichoke salad with capers, parmesan and creole mustard aioli; and you may want to take a swing at prime steak tartare, which can be about as good as a steakhouse app can be expected to be.

Address: 58 E. Oak St., Chicago
