The steak-house chain has teamed up with the History Channel to create a menu inspired by the new series The Men Who Built America.
The show, which premieres tonight, October 16, at 9, focuses on the men who helped shape America in the beginning of the 20th Century.
What did Cornelius Vanderbilt, John D. Rockefeller, Henry Ford, Andrew Carnegie, and J.P. Morgan have in common besides building American dynasties? They ate well, especially the Rockefellers.
The tycoon family was known almost as much for their culinary adventures as their wealth. Dishes and cocktails were named after family patriarch John D. Rockefeller by some of the better restaurants of the time. Antoine's in New Orleans invented the oysters Rockefeller and legend says the martini was invented by a bartender at New York's Knickerbocker Hotel in 1911 for America's first billionaire.
For $59.99, you and your own master of industry will start with a choice of salad, followed by a six ounce Filet Mignon paired with your choice of broiled sea scallops, jumbo shrimp Alexander, or jumbo lump crab cake and a choice of side. Finish off with a choice of desserts like hot chocolate cake, key lime pie, or creme brulee.
A special Men Who Built America signature cocktail, fashioned after the original Rockefeller martini, is available for $14.

P.S. -- The special menu runs for the next six weeks -- just in case you want to play "oil tycoon" on a future date night.
