Mamie Taylor’s Chicago Steakhouse Pop-Up

Following the Mamie Taylor’s barrel aged Manhattan was the perfect welcome cocktail for Chef Jeff Koop’s Chicago Steakhouse Pop-Up that I recently attended. This themed dinner celebrated the steakhouse as we know it in Chicago, going back in time to the 1930’s forward.
