All over the city, new restaurants are confidently offering a different style of menu: family style (or at least they’re listing a few big dishes built to share). Instead of everyone ordering their own plates, now you need to come to a quorum at the table about what you want to order. It's about shared enjoyment. Come together, right now, over food.
The Lunar New Year is today, and many places all over the city are hosting dinners and events to celebrate the occasion, making special dishes and treats. Welcome to the Year of the Ram/Goat/Sheep!
Valentine’s Day is rolling into town, on a Saturday no less, when most restaurants will be converted into a sea of two-top tables and serving overpriced tasting menus. It’s a night when a lot of single folks would be tempted to stay in, eat a burrito in bed, watch a movie, and call it a day (I know some couples who feel the same way). But I say if you’re single and like to mingle, here are some ways to make it a fun night out, sans red roses.
Looking for somewhere new to eat? Here’s your monthly cheat sheet of five brand-new places that recently opened around town.
Hopefully, you managed to drink some of the good stuff over the holidays, and by good stuff, I’m talking about Champagne. If you’d like to find some spots where you can pound bubbles—excuse me, learn and explore the nuances of sparkling wine in greater depth, here are places around town that serve and sell quality Champagne and other similar wines from around the world. Enjoy your bubble bath.
The city on New Year's Day is all about the walking wounded—some folks will spend the day recovering in bed, and others are ready to head back out there and get in the game. For the latter group, here are some places open for New Year's Day brunch. Just don't forget to tip big; your poor server or bartender is probably in worse shape than you.
Time to loosen that waistband a notch or two, folks, because eggnog season is here. Of course, our local bartenders know how to do it up right. Even if you don’t like the idea of egg in your drink, we have a couple egg-free options.
New Year’s Eve dinner out is typically a spendy affair, when every restaurant menu transforms into a pricy prix-fixe fandango. But fear not, we found a few options that look really fair, or seem like they will over-deliver for what they’re charging. Happy New Year!
