You have one chance each year to have the perfect New Year's Eve dinner, so you better make sure you pick the right restaurant. If you live in New York City, there are plenty of culinary options to choose from, but not all of them will be like the Empire Steak House. To kick off 2015 in style, Empire is offering a $21,000 menu that will start with two glasses of Richard Hennessy Cognac.
The appetizer, which will be served with a bottle of Dom Perignon Oenotheque, consists of four ounces of Platinum Ossetra Caviar and a seafood platter featuring lobster, jumbo lump crabmeat, clams, oysters, and tuna tartar. Next up is an eight-ounce Grade A5 Kobe Rib Eye Steak imported from Japan, white truffle mashed potatoes with black truffle creamed spinach, and a bottle of Chateau Petrus. The dessert course is a crème brûlée infused with Taylor Fladgate’s 1964 Single Harvest Port that is paired with half a bottle of Château d'Yquem. Try to save a little bit of room though, because after dinner you will be served glasses of Taylor Fladgate’s 1964 Single Harvest Port with various cheeses.
