New York, NY (PRWEB) December 5, 2007
The very definition of a rousing New Year's Eve will be found at Grayz, 13-15 West 54 th Street in midtown Manhattan, (212) 262-4600. Chef owner Gray Kunz is orchestrating the greatest party in town: a live, six-piece band playing in the majestic atrium for dancing, unending and luxurious hors d'oeuvres and finger foods followed by plate after plate of the most decadent savories and sweets to nibble, and all the festive cocktails and Paul Goerg champagne one could wish for. The party will be limited to just 200 lucky revelers at the later affair beginning at 10PM, $395 per person ++, and seating will be open to keep the party flowing throughout the historic townhouse.
Here is a taste of the menu planned for this gala event: in addition to Grayz signatures like the Oysters Rockefeller or the Applewood Smoked Salmon, hors d'oeuvres will include treats such as Osetra Caviar and Potato Latkes, Lobster Tartare with Waldorf Salad and Barbecued Osso Buco with Parsnips and Crosnes. A delicious selection of small plates to follow includes savory dishes like Velouté of Provençe and Foie Gras Raviolinis, Marinated Fennel and Yellowtail, Tobiko and Quince Vinaigrette and Crisped Pork Belly and Coriander Chutney. Sweets include a Chilled Soup of Quince and Honey Ice Cream, Signature Coffee Toffee Crème Brûlee, Spiced Champagne Truffles and so much more.
