Thursday 22

ABA MEDITERRANEAN: HANUKKAH DINE-IN AND CHRISTMAS EVE TO-GO We recently dined at Aba – thanks to the generosity of the bourbon masters at Garrison Brothers – and were, yeah, pretty much blown away by the excellence of the food there. No wonder people are ordering in advance to get this Christmas Eve Package for two that features wild mushroom hummus (pictured), whipped feta with persimmon, village salad, grilled chicken kebab, braised short rib, crispy brussels sprouts, and sticky date cake. ($118.) And, if you're dining in from Dec. 18-26, you can feast on such Hanukkah specials as parmesan and potato brussels sprout latkes, shawarma spiced brisket confit with sesame pumpkin puree currant gremolata, and more. Aba, 1011 S. Congress, Bldg. 2 #180, 737/273-0199. abarestaurants.com/austin

CORINNE: NYE LOBSTER MAC-N-CHEESE Mind you now, the mac-n-cheese that's inflected all haute cuisine with yummy crustacean meat is only part of the four-course dinner (which also features mushroom risotto and wagyu filet) at the Austin Marriott's renowned Corinne restaurant. And that dinner, in turn, is part of the Marriott's NYE overnight stay package that includes a DJ-fueled party in the seventh-floor rooftop bar Zanzibar. We mean, if you're gonna celebrate, you might as well celebrate in style, n'est-ce pas? See website for details. Sat., Dec. 31 Austin Marriott Downtown, 304 E. Cesar Chavez, 512/457-1111. $100-2,000. marriott.com
