New Years Eve in NYC: the cause of 67% of all migraine cases and stress-related illnesses in the city. Ok, perhaps I made up those numbers, but it is one of those nights that makes my head spin. So many choices, so many different people to please – why can't we all just get along for the sake of holiday merriment?? Because we still have to manage to be trendy too, and that ruins everything.
I'll give you one good option if you're in the mood for a low-key, yet festive Italian kind of night: Emporio's New Year's Eve prix-fixe menu (below). From the press release:
For $85 per person, you’ll feast on 3 courses with mouthwatering choices like warm
vegetables. All meals are served with complementary wood-fired pizzette and , and for the romantics, a selection of east and west coast oysters will be available a la carte.
