Chef Alexander Readies New Year’s Eve Menu

Carpe Vino is a hotbed of hospitality, and we’re always ready to be the platform for a party at the Friendly Confines. . .except on New Year’s Eve.  While most other joints are stockpiling noisemakers and party favors, we throttle back and provide our savvy clientele with a quiet sanctuary to acknowledge the dawn of the New Year.

Chef Alexander has created a fabulous, five-course dinner that can be your tasty, early prelude to the New Year, enabling you to return home safely, well before amateur hour begins.

Course One:  Japanese Hamachi Tartare.  Course Two:  Puree of Parsnip Soup.  Course Three:  Seared Dayboat Scallop.  Course Four:  48-Hour Wagyu Beef Sabuton.  Course Five:  Valrohna Chocolate Torte.


Cost for the dinner is $105 per person, plus tax and tip.  To make reservations, you must call the restaurant at 530-823-0320; is not available for this event.

It’s going to be a mellow, early evening.  We look forward to serving you on the last evening of 2015.
