I am back again with a new edition of Thursday Sips & Nibbles, my regular column where I highlight some interesting, upcoming food & drink events.
1) On Monday, December 31, from 5pm-12am, celebrate New Year’s Eve at Davio’s Lynnfield which, in addition to their regular à la carte dinner menu, will feature a special four-course prix-fixe New Year’s Eve menu created by Executive Chef Andres Tavares.

New Year’s Eve Menu
Poached Pears, American Prosciutto, Straccietella, Pomegranate Reduction
Hand-Rolled Pumpkin Gnocchi, Roasted Butternut Squash, Pecan Butter, Parsnip Chips
Grilled Center Cut Filet Mignon, Seasonal Root Vegetables, Brandy Pepata
Salted Caramel, Dark Chocolate Tart, Vanilla Bean Gelato

Cost: $85 per guest (excluding tax & gratuity)
*Regular dinner menu is also available.
Reservations are necessary. Please call 781-944-4810.

2) On December 29, starting at 7:30pm, Michael Dutra – a Rhode Island native who has been performing his tribute to Frank Sinatra all over the United States since 2002 – will moonlight as “The Sultan of Swoon” at Tuscan Kitchen in the Seaport District over a three-course dinner featuring the finest artisan Italian cuisine.

A perfect Christmas gift for parents and old souls alike as well as a solution to those looking to escape the madness of New Year’s Eve in the city, this early celebration to close out 2018 showcase Dutra’s uncanny talents to channel “Ol’ Blue Eyes” in sound and style making for an unforgettable evening set amongst picturesque floor-to-ceiling windows in Tuscan’s lively bar and lounge area.

Chefs Joe Brenner and Nimesh Maharjan have designed a menu – dubbed “Fly Me to the Moon” – that will be served following a cocktail hour complete with hors d'oeuvres:

Beets Salad (pistachio puree, goat cheese, mache, espresso vinaigrette)
Petit Filet (mushroom risotto, roasted carrots, toasted breadcrumbs, Toscana reduction)
Baked Cod (salted cured celeriac, spinach, shrimp brood)
Chocolate Zabaglione Cake

COST: $135 per person (includes tax & gratuity)
