Harold’s in The Heights‘ Executive Chef Kathy Elkins has crafted a three-course New Year’s Eve meal perfect for enjoying on the big terrace overlooking historic 19th Street. The evening is going to be a one-of-a-kind dining experience that’s perfect for waving goodbye to 2018 and welcoming the New Year.

First, Harold’s is greeting guests with bubbles and whetting appetites with Bread & Provisions (homemade bread, pimento cheese, butter and pickles) before settling into the first course. Choose from warming Shrimp & Okra Gumbo, Winter Salad or Whitehurst Heritage Farms Confit Chicken & Rosemary Cornbread.

Then, the main entrées take center stage. These include Black Hill Meats Beef Short Ribs with mashed potatoes, oyster mushrooms and beef demi-glace; Harissa Brick Chicken with fragrant basmati rice and blistered shishitos or Seared Scallops with capellini, lemon gremolata and Parmigiano Reggiano. There is a meatless entrée option as well: Sweet Potato Hash with a fried egg, cilantro and sesame seed pesto.

For the last course, have a sweet conclusion to 2018 with a choice of three desserts. Select Champagne Mousse, Chocolate Heath Trifle or, for some elegant drama, the Flaming Crème Brulee.
