This year there was a lot of procrastinating on plans for New Year’s Eve. After our trip to NYC, I was unsure what we could handle after the holidays. On Thursday, we finally looked into Union League, but with a 1920s dress optional, it sounded a bit too fancy. We considered Oaxaca Kitchen and mention of dj /”dance on all-time hitz” made us nervous. In the end, we squeaked in an early reservation at Caseus and followed dinner with a cocktail at 116 Crown. In the words of Goldilocks, that NYE plan ended up being “just right” for us.
Langres Cheese of Champagne with Berry Compote & Fresh Berries
House Made Egg Parpadella, Black Truffles & Wild Mushrooms
with roasted Hedgehog, Nebrodini and Hen of the Woods Mushrooms, freshly grated black truffle & Sottocenere al Tartuffo grilled cheese crouton crumbs
That’s right, a dinner interlude with mad libs. I’ll spare you the completed version.
Taleggio Crème Caramel
Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel Popcorn
St. Germain Lemon Dream Bar
On to 116 Crown
Bubbly is flowing, but it’s not ours.
A new favorite: Forth & Clyde
I was fascinated by the attire at this table. If you look closely you’ll see a few of the details, the bowtie, the pleats, the kilt pin, the buttons…
D was driving and he often refers to NYE as amateur night, so we were safely back in Milford in time for the downtown fireworks.
