Gamlin Whiskey House
By Jonas Weir
Whiskey and Steak are the way to a man’s heart, and there’s no better place to go for the robust pairing than Gamlin Whiskey House in the Central West End. Even Ron Swanson of sitcom Parks and Recreation couldn’t help from smiling here.
From rare Kentucky bourbon to high-end Scotch, Gamlin Whiskey House serves more than two hundred different whiskeys and a variety of hand-cut steaks to satisfy any appetite. The sixteen-ounce cutlet is certainly the most extravagant, but Zagat highlighted the eight-ounce Téte de Filet in its “50 States, 50 Steaks” guide. Truth be told, you can’t go wrong with any of these Midwest-raised, corn-fed cuts of beef.
On the other hand, those who refrain from red meat and libations will also find something to love at Gamlin. The restaurant’s Caesar salad is among the best, and the vegetable couscous and pan-seared scallops are both great entrée choices. The lunch and brunch menus also offer an affordable route to trying this high-end spot.
