New Year’s Eve in Brickell and Coconut Grove just got hotter. Two of Miami’s neighborhood staples are ringing in 2009 with flavor and style.
Andu Restaurant and Lounge
Andu Restaurant and Lounge is taking the New Year’s Eve celebration one step further with a fine dining experience complete with live music and dancing. Andu’s New Year’s Eve will excite your senses and satisfy your cravings as Executive Chef Nate Martin has designed a menu of Mediterranean cuisine with international influences paired with wines and signature cocktails. Using the freshest and highest quality ingredients, the menu will entice even the most discerning of palates. At midnight, the party will extend onto the outdoor patio with a DJ and a champagne toast.
The four-course menu begins with an amuse of Neo Tuna Salad (sashimi, smoked tuna and American caviar) paired with a French Rose Champagne. The menu continues with varied selections such as Prosciutto Wrapped Quail and Moroccan Spiced Lamb Shank paired with…wines. The menu ends with a tantalizing Red Velvet cocktail (raspberry vodka, Chambord, lemon and mango foam). For more detailed menu items, please see attached.
