The city’s first restaurant with a certified tobacconist, Bourbon Steak at the Four Seasons Hotel, rolled out a new “Sip & Smoke” menu this week.

Cigar expert Mason Foster, who earned his certification through Tobacconist University of Princeton, N.J., is overseeing the new cigar and beverage pairing menu at the 2800 Pennsylvania Ave. NW restaurant. The menu showcases a “carefully selected rotation of premium cigars with a range of unorthodox, complementing drinks,” according to a release, which names as an example the pairing of an Avo Classic #9 cigar with the Ruinart Brut Rosé champagne.

The new pairing menu debuted Monday, the same day Bourbon Steak’s outdoor patio season began, according to the release. Throughout the week, guests will have the chance to try a free pour of Angel’s Envy Bourbon along with their cigar order between 8 and 10 p.m.
