Great Steaks, Celebrity Diners, and a Touch of History. That’s Gallagher’s. The most casual of New York steak houses, with its checkered tablecloths and photos of sports greats on the walls, Gallagher’s makes no pretensions. From the moment you walk through the door, time stands still and customers are pampered and the food improves with each visit.

For starters, there is a first rate shrimp cocktail (or split the smallest lobster, which start at two pounds). You won’t be disappointed with the famous dry-aged steaks (especially the melt-in-your-mouth Sirloin);.The Roast Beef is the best in town. All potato dishes and the fabulous onion rings are recommended.

Vegetables, whether steamed or creamed, are terrific and the wine selection is easily accessed and affordable, with an abundant selection available by the glass.(There is an excellent choice of single malts). You won’t complain about the  Rice Pudding, creamy Cheesecake or wonderful Key Lime Pie. Add the easy-going service and you’ll agree that Gallagher’s is a heavy-hitter in the steak house league.

Tequila Semental Proudly Launches it’s New Brand

Tequila Semental
TEQUILA SEMENTAL announces its original brand of 100
percent blue agave Tequila, which were crafted in the Jalisco region of Mexico.

Wine On Line Rating: A+

This is top of the line Tequila and some of the best we have ever tasted. Available in three styles ~ Tequila Semental Silver, Tequila Semental Reposado, and Tequila Semental Añejo ~ this tequila is an ultra premium brand, crafted for a new generation of consumers… For those who prefer to savor this Spirit of Mexico.

All offerings have been individually blended to provide the perfect balance of smoothness and a unique, exotic character for each of the tequilas.

The distinctive taste profile of the Silver makes it a perfect ingredient for blended tequila cocktails

The Reposado is beautiful as a sipping tequila

The Añejo is recommended as tequila to be savored in a brandy snifter
Tequila Semental was founded by business entrepreneur Efrain Lopez in 2007, whose aim is to produce only the highest quality Tequila, while using the most modern equipment. Efrain Gurza has also accomplished his dream of the highest quality tequila by introducing only new American oak barrels into their Reposado program, and new
Hybrid French and American Oak barrels with their Añejo Tequila Semental program.

This allows for the most delicious Tequila flavors to be brought forth from the purest oak barrels. Tequila Semental has created an impressive niche for artisan Master Distiller and blender Valente Arellano L.C.Q, within the Tequila industry.

The makers may not agree, but while is may be Tequiliside to use these beauties in a blended drink, after savoring them neat (and loving it) we mixed them with fresh lemon/lime juice, a first rate orange liqueur, a bit of muddled cucumber and ice, serving in a glass rimmed with salt and and pepper. No matter what you have heard, you can still taste the difference.

Of course, we left plenty to satisfy the snifter, as well as our refreshed palates.
