|Drunk Santa doesn't feel like cooking this Christmas.|
The Christmas day prix-fixe menu at Scarpetta offers four appetizers: raw yellowtail, mozzarella in carrozza, braised beef short ribs, and creamy polenta. You have two choices of pasta, spaghetti and agnolotti, and two choices of entrée, Alaskan Halibut or a 21-day aged sirloin. Coconut panna cotta, amedei chocolate cake, and a pistachio mousse round out your Christmas meal. Dinner: 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. $75/adults & $30/kids.
For Christmas Eve and Christmas day, Gotham Steak will be offering special "surprise" holiday items, as well as regular menu items such as the veal porterhouse ($48) and the Texas-style Berkshire pork ribs ($27). Dinner: 6 p.m. until 12 a.m.
A special holiday dim sum menu will be available for lunch and dinner at Hakkasan. Regular menu items will also be available. Dinner: 5 p.m. until 12 a.m.
Even though Ryan from Norman's 180 promised he was emailing us the holiday menu, he apparently forgot and stopped taking our calls (I'm totally taking him off my Christmas list). But...he did say that the restaurant will be open and serving a holiday dinner menu.
If you're stuck having dinner at someone else's home and completely dreading the green bean casserole and baked ham, get sloshed before arriving at the cruel, cruel person's dinner party. Stop by La Cote, sip on drinks while watching the amazing ocean and listening to phat beats being dropped by the DJ. You'll have plenty of time to listen to little Rebecca playing "Jingle Bells" on the recorder later.
Merry Christmas to all!
