Year after year we slave away preparing meals for our families to enjoy over Christmas and New Year’s. This year, take a break from the kitchen and start a new tradition by enjoying a delicious meal at one of New York’s hottest restaurants. These five locales are offering exclusive tasting options this holiday season. Take a look below!
1. A fabulous eight-course tasting menu at The Bari
Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve are done right at The Bari with their eight-course menu for two. An Oyster and Seaweed Salad, Plum Ginger Octopus and delectable Tiger Shrimp are just a few of the fabulous courses they’re offering. With your ticket, you’re also entitled to one bottle of either Ravenwood Merlot or Mezza Corona Pinot Grigio. Get yours here!
2. A Moroccan Style dinner at Arabesque
Take a trip to Morocco this Christmas with this 3-course meal paired with Moroccan entertainment (belly dancing!) Swap out the fireplace and turkey and head over to Arabesque for a Christmas Eve meal that you’ll remember for years to come.
3. Indulge in Italian and a NYE open bar
A four-course Italian meal is on the menu at the Arlo NoMad this New Year’s Eve. You’ll have a choice of two options for all courses and a special dessert of whipped Thai basil pannacotta, white chocolate, raspberries, and almond crumble.
