This is the sole dessert option for the pairing menu and it’s recommended to go with Fonesca Bin 27 Ruby Port.

Every dish we sampled was outstanding and worthy of a coveted spot on this special holiday pairing menu. Old Hickory Steakhouse Chef George Yiu has taken great care in crafting each dish with thoughtfulness and skill in keeping with the masculinity of the Maker’s Mark Bourbon that graces each plate.

My husband and I had an exquisite experience with service from Ray, who has orchestrated the last two dinners we have had at the restaurant. We had fun sharing dishes from the Father’s Day Pairing Menu as well as selections of our own choosing off the nightly menu.
