Gilded: An Alchemical New Year's

There goes Justine quoting Yeats and getting all Auric Goldfinger … or Goldmember … or King Midas on us, turning her cottage industry into a gold-beaten Studio 54 … or Bronze Age … or Gilded Age (oh you know how she likes to mix things up) for the turn of the annum. Price includes lobsters, prime rib, and gold-leaf desserts (oh my), plus midnight champers (and you know when it's Justine, odds are it is champagne from Champagne) toast from towers, then free-flowing till you tipple into a taxi. Who but Golden Dawn Arkestra could top this bill? Thu., Dec. 11 - Wed., Dec. 31Wed., Dec. 31, 8pm-2am. $175, $150 pre-sale (this will sell out).

Eastside Cafe

This well-established place has been serving some of the healthiest food on the Eastside for quite a long time. The large herb and vegetable garden in back makes for fantastic fresh plates, and a dedicated gluten-free menu makes it fun for everyone.

Chef Sonya Coté has opened her restaurant right at the source – on a farm, set right beside a plowed field and under the canopies of ancient pecan trees on Springdale Farm. Dinner is served on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights. Each meal consists of between five and eight courses, tailored to the season. The price varies between $55 and $65, with the exception of Thursday night, when recipes are still being tweaked, which runs $40.

The curry style pasta, Salt & Time bavette steak, and the Rabbit 7 Ways are a few of the reasons this new eatery has a buzz around it.
