#ThirstyThursday: Bourbon & Filet Mignon at Osso Steakhouse in San Francisco

image002 (1)


I love a good steak, but unfortunately I don’t get to enjoy it as much as I’d like because I’m a picky eater who craves more than a grilled chop and vintage wine. I love to be wowed when dining out, so you can imagine the amount of joy my heart felt when I learned that Osso Steakhouse in San Fran offers an “Ossogoodhattan” cocktail made with bourbon, sweet vermouth, and Fernet-Branca, topped with a boozy cherry, that is paired alongside their signature bone-in petit filet mignon.

The Ossogoodhattan cocktail is an ode to San Francisco with a touch of Fernet-Branca (the city’s most popular liquor), shaken and poured table side for convenient self-serve refills. Following the tradition of classic mixed drinks, the “Ossogoodhattan” is elevated from the original rye whiskey recipe by substituting high-quality bourbon and a dash of herbal liqueur instead of bitters.

Ossogoodhattan recipe:

In a shaker with ice, add:

  • 2 parts Bulleit Bourbon
  • 1 part sweet vermouth
  • 3 dashes Fernet Branca

Shake and strain into a chilled Nick and Nora Glass and garnish with a brandied cherry.




Enjoy the Ossogoodmanhattan with a juicy, USDA Prime medium-rare filet, which is seared in a hot iron skillet with a cube of organic butter for added flavor and searing on both sides for an optimal crust. Those who want an even more heightened mouthful of flavors should opt for a side of chorizo-spiced mac and cheese to compliment the beef and bourbon and complete the meal.

Bourbon, carbs and steak are always a good combo as long as you remember not to over-indulge and hit the gym for some intense cardio after! Cheers and buon appetito!
