Finding the perfect food and wine pairing is a challenge, but once you’ve found it, it elevates the meal to a whole new level. STRIP by Strega features an extensive list of wines including dessert wines, red wines, sparkling wines, and white wines. To help ensure you get the best dining experience possible, we’ve put together a list of the dishes on our menu that will pair the best with one of our many white wines.
White wine is known to be best when paired with seafood. Our raw bar features king crab legs, east coast oysters, shrimp cocktail, and more. Any of these fresh, raw seafood options will pair wonderfully with white wine.
Soups and Salads
White wine pairs nicely with lighter meals, such as soups and salads. Some of the most notable from our menu include:
- Beet and Goat Cheese Salad – This salad features baby beets, multigrain toast, beet gastrique, lemon pudding, pistachios, and orange segment. The citrus flavors in the lemon pudding and orange segment complement the white wine beautifully, while the other flavors are mild enough to not overpower it.
- Onion soup – our onion soup is filled with three types of cheese, served with toast. White wine pairs well with many different types of cheeses. It allows you to taste the flavors of the cheese, rather than masking them.
STRIP by Strega has a large variety of dishes to choose from for the main course. If you’re looking for one to pair with white wine, consider one of the following.
- Salmon – this salmon features a raisin puree and wheatberries autumn salad to create a delicate flavor combination. White wine pairs well with the natural smokiness found in salmon.
- Cioppino – shrimps, scallops, lobster, littleneck clams, and jumbo king crab create the perfect seafood combination to enjoy with any of the white wines we have available.
- Cornish hen – white wine pairs well with most types of poultry, and this flavorful Cornish hen is no exception. A parmesan and swiss chard risotto is the perfect addition to the meal.
As a general rule, white wine pairs well with light food. The lighter the food, the lighter to white wine should be that is paired with it. If you have a specific white in mind, speak to your server to decide what dish it would pair the best with.
