Christmas is over but the festivity continues as we get ready to say good-bye to 2016 to welcome 2017. I am so excited that Habana is hosting its New Year’s Even celebration featuring live music, rum tastings, cigar rolling, plus a champagne toast and balloon drop at midnight. The evening will include performances from The Lily Hernandez Band and Madcat with no cover.
Habana’s prix fixe New Year’s Eve menu is $100/person and will offer two seatings for dinner service at 6pm and 8pm. Special menu items by Chef Miguel Quintero include Carne a la Guayaba (Dry aged Rib Eye, cebolla seca, boniato, guava cabernet reduction); Regalo del Mar (Alaskan Halibut, Flor de calabasa, papaya, Zucchini); Hacha De Lechon (Tomahawk, Heirloom Tomatoes, Watermelon Radish, Avocado); and Tres Chocolates (Espresso Sponge, Spiced Dark Chocolate, chocolate blanco, dulce de leche).
Allen and I got to preview the delicious cocktails and food a couple of weeks ago. Seriously, they are delicious!
