La Toque

In light of continuing concern with the pandemic, La Toque will forgo tightly packed boisterous crowd of revelers in favor of a more intimate evening. Reservations will be strictly limited and are staggered from 7:30 to 9 p.m., with each party seated at their own table. They’ll serve an opulent seven-course tasting menu beginning with Champagne and caviar plus offer party favors, and for those there at midnight, more great Champagne to ring in the New Year. The menu is never truly finalized until about a week before, but they have a pretty solid draft shaping up already with Ossetra caviar, fresh black truffles, meltingly tender prime beef rib cap and fresh seafood. Dinner is $450++ per person. Optional wine pairings will be $200++ per person. Reserve at
