Cook or Make Reservations?
Holidays mean food and lots of it; decadent, rich, splurge-worthy food. Which kind of “feaster” are you? Are you a domestic goddess who enjoys setting the table, decking the halls and serving a PINTEREST FEAST at home or do you prefer to sprinkle yourself with baubles, slip on some Manolo’s & listen to the sweet sound of waiters buzzing around you leaving thoughts of dishes and clean up far beyond the reaches of your champagne gripped hands? Either way, we have some deeeeee-lightful suggestions for you.

So you don’t prefer to spend a week in advance cleaning every nook and cranny of your home, cooking, arranging and decorating all for a bunch who will come in and wolf it down in less than 30 minutes, leaving a trail of remnants in their wake as they saunter out the door after drinking your best port? We just CAN’T imagine why! (wink wink)
No matter… The U.S. Grant has created a lovely tasting menu option for Christmas Eve Dinner. Think amuse bouche, molasses duck or scallops & pancetta. Mouthwatering really. Make your reservations NOW for the best available times or you will be eating at 10:15pm.
