We’ve long loved the Four Seasons Hotel Washington, DC, but now we have another reason to visit its posh BOURBON STEAK restaurant.

The restaurant has just named its first “cigar sommelier.”  In addition to curating a dynamic list and providing intensive staff training,Mason Foster, certified tobacconist, will soon debut Bourbon Steak’s first Sip & Smoke cigar and beverage pairing menu.

Going beyond the standard whiskey-and-cigar duo, the Sip & Smoke pairing menu showcases a carefully selected rotation of premium cigars with a range of unorthodox, complementing drinks intended to enhance the experience. From craft cocktails to fine wines and spirits, his choices push the envelope of accepted standards – like his decision to pair a robust Avo Classic #9 with a fruity, tannic Ruinart, Brut Rosé.

Throughout launch week, starting March 27, guests who order a cigar during the special “after dinner” hours of 8-10PM will receive a complimentary one-ounce pour of Angel’s Envy Bourbon to enjoy with their smoke. We’re ready for some patio time as soon as the snow melts.
