Every year, I get a hundred press releases (and that's a conservative estimate) about Christmas and New Year's, Eve and Day both--special menus, ticketed parties, 3-course prix fixes, 8-course tasting menus... the list goes on.

Where to feed them? Read her suggestions here (and take note for next year).
