Book & Bourbon’s menu offers a selection of upscale comfort dishes developed by HMSHost’s culinary team based on regional influences and big flavor. For breakfast, guests can enjoy a fried green tomato benedict, béarnaise, country ham, crispy green tomatoes, and griddle hash. The beloved buttermilk fried chicken sandwich takes the cake as the most popular item but big appetites can also opt for other entrées like the house steak with fork smash potatoes or a smoked half chicken.
Offering a list of more than 85 world-class, homegrown bourbons including several rare labels, aficionados will be thrilled at the ability to order various ages of Pappy Van Winkle, Angel’s Envy Cask Strength, George T. Stagg, Jefferson’s Presidential Select, and many other unique pours. The beverage menu also includes a craft cocktail list paying homage to the classics such as a Manhattan, Mint Julep, and Peaches and Beam.
The educational part of Book & Bourbon embraces both the new bourbon drinker and the advanced bourbon palette. Guests can learn from highly trained staff about different bourbons – tasting notes, the distilling process, history, and what makes each special, unique, or rare. They can also browse the vintage style “library cards” that feature cocktail recipes to replicate at home.
