oysters rockerfeller in fillo cups

fall salad, pears, blue cheese, roasted pecans...applecider viniager, horseradish mustard dressing

Prime rib with hen of the woods
greens, probably parsnips too
good bread and butter

still deciding on dessert, I'm thinking coconut ice cream with roasted pineapple/amaretto/brown sugar....throw on a couple of toasted almonds

finish with liquid chocolate 70%....Champagne and Zin or Syrah.

That's a really opened ended question. The ideas and themes can be endless. A lot would really depend on what you are going for. Many places tend to go with an obulent, traditional New Year's dinner often times doing a "surf and turf" main course of Medallions of Beef with Lobster. Depending on pricing and what else is going on you can add hand passed hors, a caviar first course, etc. That is pretty standard for a "high-end" New Year's celebration, but nothing says you have to stay with that. Again, the themes are endless. One that I always thought would be fun to do is an international menu of foods served around the world, during New Year's celebrations, that are supposed to bring good luck. I haven't ever really researched the idea, yet, so I am not sure how feasible it would be, but sounds like it might be fun.

New Years

I always try and do a pre-fix for a certain amount or you can go ala cart and hit them for all the bells and whistles

do some upscale appetizers oysers, shrimp cocoktail, foie gras if your customers like that

then a few salads caesar, mixed greens, composed and say a lobster bisque

surf and turf
upscale fish preparation
struffed chicken for the regular people
rack of lamb

dessert combos for two alot of couples go out

then if doing a pre fix offer a champagne toast
