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.

Tavern On Rush

For business lunches or romantic dinners, Tavern on Rush, in Chicago’s classic entertainment district, serves some of Chicago’s best steak. The lunch menu at Tavern on Rush will surprise you with a range of delicious chow. There’s the seared tuna, shrimp or crab cocktail and oysters either raw or cooked up in classic preparations like Rockefeller, but there are also some wilder selections thrown in. The fried lobster tails are perfectly luxurious finger food, and you might conceivably end your lunch right there (they’re that good), but there’s also pork pot stickers and hummus to round out the international offerings. For more substantial options, there’s a dozen different soups and salads, and a magnificent range of burger choices, including ribeye steak sandwich and a bison burger, accompanied by a large number of seafood and poultry options. It’s safe to say that if a diner can’t find something to like on this lunch menu, that diner will likely not find anything to like anywhere. Then there’s the dinner menu, where restaurants usually shine even more, and Tavern on Rush is no exception to that rule. Though the lunch menu mentions, at the bottom left corner, that you can get “prime steaks and chops charcoal grilled to order,” this red meat is the star of the dinner menu. Is there a better way to cook a steak than over an open fire? There’s something so primal and satisfying about the way a flame licks up the sides of a good cut of meat, caramelizing and crisping up the luscious fat under chef’s watchful eye, creating a light crust that crunches when you bite into it, releasing all the deliciousness that makes beef the favorite American meat and making you glad to be alive.

Address: 1031 N. Rush St., Chicago
