Come Easter Sunday, April 16, 2017, the hunt will be afoot at BOURBON STEAK at Four Seasons Hotel Washington, DC as it hosts its second-annual Easter-Bottle Hunt. Taking over the recently renovated brick-walled courtyard, guests 21-and-over who partook in Chef Joe Palma’s brunch service can have a “hoppy” ending to the experience as they poke around the handsome patio in search of hidden pastel prizes to take home. In place of eggs, BOURBON STEAK has cleverly planted ribbon-wrapped bottles of rare WhistlePig Whiskey, a house favourite. The fun hops off at 3:00 pm and is complimentary for brunch guests.
Spring-inspired dishes will sprout up on Chef Palma’s three-course, prix-fixe brunch menu, available 11:30 am – 2:30 pm. Delectable choices include apricot and almond Dutch baby pancakes with warm bourbon barrel-aged syrup and silky vanilla chantilly; and savoury BOURBON STEAK tater tot poutine with foie gras and warm cheese curds butter gelato. One thing guests won’t be able to find on the menu? BOURBON STEAK’s off-the-menu Easter offering available only by request: an eggshell filled with a savoury infused custard.
Before the booze hounding sets off on the patio, participating parents can send their kids down to the lower level for a candy-filled egg hunt. Taking place from 12:30 to 1:00 pm, the Easter Bunny himself will make a special appearance to orchestrate the festivities.
Why WhistlePig? Not only is the name about as whimsical as an egg-laying bunny, but its artisanal, small-batch craftsmanship resonates with the BOURBON STEAK philosophy as well. In addition to using its barrels to age certain cocktails, BOURBON STEAK teamed up with the Vermont-based distillery to create an exclusive bottle. WhistlePig 10-Year BSDC 5th Anniversary 100 Proof can be found in the BOURBON STEAK Manhattan and as one of the WhistlePig whiskeys featured in the Notorious P.I.G. tasting trio.
There’s fun for everyone this Easter. Make a brunch reservation at BOURBON STEAK a celebration in itself – and hit the bunny trail with a holiday cocktail in hand.
