New Year's Eve at Taxim

When: Thu., Dec. 31 2009

Chef-owner David Schneider offers a six-course menu including wood-grilled octopus, house-made lamb sausage with pickled green tomatoes and house-made goat cheese, and an Aegean pilaf of inked basmati rice and seafood in a tomato-cinnamon sepia sauce. Dessert is a slice of vasilopita, the traditional Greek cake served on Saint Basil's Day, January 1, and there's a complimentary glass of champagne. Dinner's $65 at the first seating, from 5 to 8 PM, and $95 at the second, 8:15 to 10:30 PM. There will be music, dancing, and party favors after 9 PM, and in another Greek tradition, Schneider plans to "cermoniously smash pomegranates" in the restaurant's foyer, to "spread the seeds of good luck."
