Winter Park, FL (April 13, 2017) - Pioneer of the TasteMaker tradition, Ruth’s Chris Steak House is serving an exceptional, five-course dining experience featuring the whiskies of Johnnie Walker. Hosted exclusively at Ruth’s Chris Steak House locations across the nation on April 27, the dinner will be the third in a series of acclaimed TasteMaker Dinners.

Guests will be served a curated selection of inventive whisky cocktails, as well as tastings of Johnnie Walker Black, Johnnie Walker Platinum and Johnnie Walker Blue served neat. Each beverage will be served alongside an exclusive menu, crafted specifically for the one-night only, dining experience. Pairings include Stuffed Shrimp Scampi & Lasagna Roulade, Balsamic Roasted Pear Salad, Red Lentil && Cauliflower Soup, Filet Mignon Oscar and Tiramisu.

“Our TasteMaker Dinners bring guests from around the nation together to experience the finer tastes in life,” said Abdiel Aleman, Vice President of culinary development for Ruth’s Chris Steak House. “Combining our rich heritage with that of Johnnie Walker whiskies allows us to create a dining experience that will be storied in its own right.”

Ruth’s TasteMaker Dinner series was inspired by Ruth’s Chris Steak House founder, Ruth Fertel, who mortgaged her home more than 50 years ago to purchase her first restaurant. The single mother, who is commonly referred to as “The First Lady of Steak,” had no prior restaurant experience but was able to succeed because of her commitment to providing exceptional food and service to all of her guests. Each of the pairing partners that have been selected for the TasteMaker dinners have stories that echo Fertel’s own fearless spirit of entrepreneurship and dedication to quality.

Reservations for Ruth’s TasteMaker Dinner with Johnnie Walker are now available at participating locations with additional dining experiences scheduled throughout the year featuring Chateau Montelena Winery, Moët Hennessy and Marchesi Antinori.
