Better Than a Ball Drop: New Year's Eve at Thermidor

Categories: Holiday Meals

Lara Hata
Thermidor's NYE Retro Glamour Menu

Where: Thermidor, 8 Mint Plaza (at Fifth St.), 896-6500

Cost: First seating (6, 6:30, or 7 p.m.), $85 for four courses; second seating (8:30, 9, or 9:30 p.m.), $95 for four courses plus Champagne toast

Why it's likely to be special: New Year's Eve is a moment completely enthralled with nostalgia (see: "Auld Lang Syne"; weepy drunk people in party hats), and there's no better place for that than Thermidor, Neil Jorgensen and Bruce Binn's tribute to cooking from a time long before Julia ever heard of Julie

Menu highlights: goat cheese and pear Napoleon; sweetbreads, pork belly pruneaux; Liberty Farms duck à l'orange; butter-poached Maine lobster tail; chocolate parfait with Valrhona ganache

Reservations: Via OpenTable
