Black Friday Respite: The Paramount Hotel and The Dalmore Distillery Introduce Special Black Friday Tasting Menu

Library Bar 3

On Friday, November 26, the Paramount Hotel’s Library Bar will serve as a chic refuge from the hustle and bustle of Times Square for shoppers, on what’s been called the busiest shopping day in America. The Dalmore Special Tasting plate will be available daily from Black Friday through January 2nd 2011 at The Library Bar on the mezzanine level of the Paramount Hotel from 5:00pm – 10:00pm. 
Chef Spangenthal’s signature small plate offers three distinct ‘bites’ that bring together the unique flavor profiles found in The Dalmore Gran Reserva.  “The challenge of developing these ‘bites’ lies in the fact that I want our guests to have an incredibly indulgent taste experience.  I also wanted each offering to be unique in every aspect from the way they are presented on the plate to flavor and texture,” said Chef Spangenthal.

The menu includes:
Foie Gras Crème Brulee
Toasted sour cherry pecan bread
Smoked Scottish Salmon Tartare
Cucumber, radish and pressed caviar
Bitter Sweet Chocolate Caramel Espresso Mousse
Dram of The Dalmore Gran Reserva
“This refined snack perfectly complements the profile of Gran Reserva as each bite reveals layers of sweet marmalade, rich spices and dark chocolate,” said Richard Paterson, Master Blender, The Dalmore.  At only $18, these savory small plates provide the perfect amount of indulgence to enjoy in between holiday shopping or whether you’re on your way to enjoy Christmas lights, ornate window displays or take a carriage ride around the park.
