I just got a change of address from Perry's Steakhouse, the home of Dallas' favorite porkchop. The steak and seafood mecca moved around the corner from its original McKinney Avenue location to wildly sexy new digs on Klyde Warren Park.
I was excited to see a new signature cocktail on the menu when I visited, and even more delighted that it wasn't a take on an old fashioned or a fruity vodka drink. Perry's does very well with their diverse cocktail menu and even lets you try their drinks three mini-martinis at a time, but it never hurts to have a new cocktail to choose from.
For their slant on a traditional Godfather (scotch whiskey and amaretto), they use Monkey Shoulder scotch whiskey (bright citrus and warm vanilla notes), amaretto, and the kicker, black walnut bitters for a slight cocoa flavor.
