We are busily planning and preparing for our New Year's Eve celebration at Restaurant Eugene. For this first time ever, we've teamed up with our colleagues at Holeman & Finch Public House to deliver an incredibly thoughtful and memorable evening, full of intrigue and style, 007: The Cocktail & Dinner Event.
Guests will begin their evening with cocktails and a spin of the roulette wheel at the Public House, which we are transforming into a casino, then proceed to Restaurant Eugene for a dinner fit for an international man of mystery. In fact, every course will be taken from foods Bond enjoyed in Ian Flemming's novels.
Casino Royal - Caviar &; Toast
Dr. No. - Conch Fritters
You Only Live Twice - Tsukiji Market Hamachi
Goldfinger - Stone Crab Claws with Pink Champagne
Diamonds are Forever - Pheasant Roulade
Moonraker - Road Prime Rib, Yorkshire Pudding and Marrow
From Russia with Love - Macerated Figs, Sweet Yogurt and Crunchy Almond
You get the idea...
Of course, there is only one thing with which someone as debonnaire as Bond would toast the new year:
a recoltant manipulant (grower producer) champagne --- in this case, a Jeroboam of Vilmart & Cie Cuvee Grand Cellier.
Cheers, indeed. Happy New Year!
