new year's eve menu

new year's eve is one of my favorite nights to cook. it's the last chance of the year to blow it out. the menu is always fun and challenging, which creates a special tension among the entire staff, but after the first seating all the kinks are worked out, and it time to have fun. this year we're offering a five course tasting @ $75 and optional $35 for wine pairing. see menu below. wines TBD
