Quadrant elevates its cocktail program with new chef, menus, and pairings
WASHINGTON, D.C. (November 2016) – An unparralled cocktail program was introduced when Quadrant Bar & Lounge first opened its doors, using culinary techniques to develop handcrafted, artisanal cocktails. With the introduction of new seasonal menus, Quadrant is elevating its culinarian cocktail approach by offering pairings to complement all dishes, enhancing the dining experience of each guest. The new menus and each pairing are thoughtfully curated to focus on seasonality of the ingredients used in both the culinary offerings and cocktails.
The lunch and dinner menus, which have been crafted by JongJip Yang, new Chef de Cuisine at Quadrant, includes seasonal dishes from his diverse culinary background ranging from experience with Asian, French, Spanish and American cuisines. Dishes now found on the menu include Duck “Migas,” Smoked Blue Fish Rilletes, Mahi Mahi a la Plancha, and Cider Braised Pork Belly. Having embraced the new cocktail pairing program, Chef Yang works with Lead Mixologist Christopher Mendenhall in harmoniously aligning the two.
A signature classic cocktail at Quadrant, the Smoked Old Fashioned, is comprised of bourbon, house made smoked syrup, cherry bitters, and cedar smoke. The cocktail is paired with warm mixed olives, which are soaked within the same wood chips used in the drink. The Smoky Pineapple, made with bourbon, house made smoked syrup, cherry bitters and cedar smoke pairs well with Chef Yang’s Head on Prawns with jalapeno escabeche and Meyer lemon. From culinary and cocktail connoisseurs, to guests’ eager to learn about pairing ingredients and flavors, the new cocktail pairing program at Quadrant is an approachable upscale experience for all.
