No restaurant requires a great wine list like a steakhouse does. One of the great maxims for pairing wine with food is that a complex dish requires a simpler wine, while a complex wine shines with a simpler dish. I don’t know about you but I am a steak house purist, so while I can appreciate the intense complexity of a dry-aged well-marbled steak, my steak is all about the beef, the perfect partner for a complex and layered wine.
That’s not to say that the steaks at BLT Prime have to be simple. They can be accompanied by classic steak sauces; chimichurri works for me, though the Roquefort might make your wine really pop! Round your entrée out with Hen of the Woods mushrooms, Provençal tomatoes and jalapeno mashed potatoes for full-on steak house overload! Looks like you might want an intense red wine when dining at BLT Prime!
