Pre-Father’s Day Scotch & Rum Dinner at Chakra in Paramus on June 12th


Chef Thomas Ciszak of Chakra serves up an early option for Father’s Day with a four course dinner paired with single malt scotches and rum all aged in sherry casks on Thursday June 12 at 7pm.

Each spirit has been aged in sherry casks, allowing guests to learn about the influences that sherry-seasoned oak imparts on the spirits. Guests will taste The Macallan 12 year old in sherry-seasoned oak, triple cask aged The Macallan 15 year old, Highland Park 18 year old aged in Oloroso sherry casks, and Brugal 1888 rum, which is double-aged, first in American whiskey oak then sherry casks.

For the menu, Ciszak has chosen dishes like Smoked Pork Tenderloin crusted with coffee-cocoa nibs and 40-hour Short Rib with pastrami spices and duck fat potatoes that play into the nuances of the spirits, while also using fatty meats to cut through the alcohol. Dessert marries the Brugal 1888’s sweet, toffee caramel and licorice notes with a Milk Chocolate and Raisin Bread Pudding with caramelized bananas. Dinner is $79 including food & spirits (tax & gratuity additional). 


During the dinner, Chakra will also raffle off a $300 humidor and each guest will go home with a hand-rolled cigar. Reservations can be made by calling 201-556-1530.
