7th Annual Whiskey Dinner at Max’s Oyster Bar Featuring Rye Whiskey

RYE: A New York-inspired Cocktail & Food Pairing Dinner

whiskey on the rocksThis year for our annual Whiskey Dinner, Max’s Oyster Bar team will be featuring classic Rye Whiskey based cocktails from the New York City historical drink book, and specifically the regional variations on the Manhattan Cocktail. Each course is paired with a classic interpretation of this delicious drink, each with their own touch made famous by bartenders past and present.

Rye whiskey is an inherently American spirit, and what better way to showcase this than with an inherently American drink? We say, there is no better way, and so we have an entire menu centered around these themes. Join us for this excellent dinner, “tour” the regions of New York City, and stay warm with Rye Whiskey.
