I had the latkes, the paradelle (again), the stuffed scallops, and the bread pudding.  The latkes were delicious even without the sauce, so I’ll have to say that I liked it better than NYE 2011’s preparation.  The paradelle was still delicious, but perhaps spicier than last time.  The stuffed scallops were very good.  It looked like a small portion compared to the other entree options, but I had suspicions that it would be a smaller plate of food and strategically ordered it so that I would have more room in my belly for the bread pudding.  (haha, and it was the right move in my opinion.)  The scallops were served on shells with some asparagus spears.  There was a lot more seafood in the stuffing than I expected, but the dish wasn’t overly fishy or anything.  The bread pudding was quite yummy and filling, but I don’t remember having chocolate chips in it last time.

We had never been there before, but the NYE special menu totally interested us. Four courses for $50. There was even a vegetarian option for each course which one of our members benefited from. Continue reading
