Bourbon Steak's $7 Smoke & Stout

The restaurant: Bourbon Steak's bar and lounge

The deal: Ask for the Smoke n' Stout special, and you'll get an artisanal Red Apron half-smoke with a pint of Moo Thunder Stout from Butternuts Brewery for $7.

The deets: In a wintry version of its popular hot dog special from last summer, Bourbon Steak is offering the $7 Smoke n' Stout deal daily throughout the month.

This is about as foodie as a beer and hot dog get. The Red Apron half smoke is made with local dry-aged beef and pork, black pepper, white cardamom, garlic, nutmeg, smoked beer and bacon.

New head chef Adam Sobel tops the half smokes with either venison chili with charred jalapeno and cheddar cheese whiz or “NY Cart Style,” with sauerkraut and spicy ketchup onions.

The Moo Thunder Stout comes from New York microbrewery Butternuts Beer & Ale.

The special is available in the bar and lounge Monday-Thursday from 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m., Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m., Saturday 5:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m., and Sunday from 5:30 p.m. to 11 p.m.

Nice pairing! Kudos to the restaurant for offering something that sounds so tasty for $7. Red Apron best apron.

I'd love to see a less "budget" option with maybe a side/app and a nicer stout, too. Ideally you invoke the restaurant's name and get a bourbon barrel aged stout, but not one too bourbon-heavy or too thick. Brooklyn's Black Ops might be ideal, but that's price prohibitive and a deal in no one's mind. Brooklyn BCS wouldn't be a bad choice though, but Victory, Bell's, Stone, and Rogue all make pretty good offerings!

Nice ideas - I like the bourbon-barrel aged beer thought. Looking for a side to round it out, I'd order those amazing duck fat fries on the side (or the fried pickles!).

Ooh -- thanks for the tip. I think I am going to head to the bar this week to try out this special...with an order of duck fat fries of course!
