Bohanan’s Prime Steaks and Seafood, 219 E. Houston St., is sparkling for the Festival of Lights this year.
The restaurant is celebrating Hanukkah by serving up a series of gourmet latkes paired with an international array of vodkas.
“This seemed like a very natural pairing because both latkes and vodka are made from potatoes,” chef and owner Mark Bohanan says. “We have hand-selected premium vodkas that will complement the flavors of the latkes beautifully.”
The five-course latke sampler starts with a potato and caraway latke with Gruyère, green apple and garnished with roasted beet purée. It’s is partnered with Chopin Vodka from Poland. Another Polish vodka, Ultimate, is paired with a celery leaf and potato latke topped with house-cured salmon, crème fraîche and fresh dill before being finished with salmon roe.
Potato and fennel latkes with oven-roasted San Marzano tomatoes and black pepper are served topped with California Reserve White Sturgeon. Zodiac Vodka from Idaho is on the side. Potato and red onion latkes with cucumber tzatziki and Hackleback American Caviar are paired with Luksusowa Vodka from Poland. Finally, traditional latkes with ossetra caviar are served with Monopolowa Vodka from Austria.
The traditional latkes are on the regular menu Dec. 1-8. To arrange a tasting of the gourmet latkes with the vodka for parties of 10 or more, call 210-885-0538. The cost of the tasting is $65 a person. Click here for more information.
