Winter at the White Horse Tavern: Meals, Drinks & More
It’s the season of chilly winter weather, festive outings with loved ones, and, of course, delicious comfort food that warms both the heart and belly. There’s a wonderful selection of cozy bistros, modern restaurants, and jazzy bars to spend your frosty evenings at in the West Village, but none like The White Horse Tavern — your next stop for a delectable winter dish that’s full of flavor and richness. Unlike some West Village taverns and cocktail bars, we offer a wide range of innovative cocktail mixes, along with vintage wines and bold beers, to really up your culinary game.
Oven Baked Mac & Cheese
It’s the season of giving, so why not give yourself the ultimate winter treat? Our Oven-Baked Mac & Cheese is made with a delectable blend of gruyere, American, and parmesan cheese to create a rich and creamy comfort meal that feels like a warm blanket for your taste buds. Meat lovers can also add crispy chopped bacon as a salty topper.
This meal is best enjoyed with our Guinness Stout, a velvety dark beer that complements the richness of the cheese with its strong bitter taste and smooth finish. Wine connoisseurs will be happy to know our Pinot Noir has a complex flavor profile of red fruits and umami that provides great balance to the richness of the mac & cheese.
Looking for comfort food that’s also vegan-friendly? Our Impossible Cheeseburger is made from a nutritious soy protein patty topped with vegan cheddar cheese and an assortment of greens with a dash of mayo to create a tasty, nourishing meal to remember. Served with crinkle-cut fries, our burger checks all the boxes of classic and delicious sin carne.
Now that you have an appetizing burger to munch on, time for a drink! Our Grand Duffray Pinot Noir is a lovely partner to the rich and savory flavor of your meal, leaving you with a slightly spicy and light mouthfeel, along with a note of cherry. For those in search of the perfect cocktail, the Bad Apple is not to be missed; its lemon and ginger flavors add a tangy twist to your meal that’s perfect for more adventurous palates.
Beef lovers, look no further than our Steak Frites dish for the heartiest meal of all. The prime flat iron steak is a beefy and surprisingly tender cut that packs a punch with its richness and versatility. Along with sticky steak sauce and crinkle-cut fries, this dish is a must-try if you’re looking for sizzling hot beef and tasty carbs to fill you up fast.
Steak and red wine are a love affair no make should ever break. The savory taste of the beef goes well with the wine’s fruity notes and slight acidity, creating a flavor profile hinging on chaotic and harmonious.
Our Baron De Saint-Onge – Bordeaux Rogue is a vintage red wine that will bring a classic elegance to your meal. Another option is our Ivan Drago cocktail, made from vodka, ginger, lemon, and a blend of spices — a surefire way to tantalize your taste buds with its tangy and spicy flavor profile.
Drink Pairings for Desserts
Of course, we’ve got our dessert lovers covered with a menu of sweet treats to chase away the cold. A winning combination is our classic NYC cheesecake with an espresso martini; the creamy, sweet taste of the cheesecake pairs beautifully with the bold coffee flavors of the martini, zipping past tasty and straight into decadent.
Our molten chocolate cake is ideal for chocoholics, with a gooey and sweet center that looks and tastes heavenly. Paired with our Provence rosé, you’ll be able to savor the cocoa flavor with the wine’s airy mouthfeel and fruity notes. It’s a perfect little treat for when the frost comes too close!
