Here’s another installment of what some local restaurants have planned for their holiday menus for Christmas and New Years.
Westend Bistro will be serving its full menu both Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve, but has a three-course special menu planned, featuring starters including black walnut and cauliflower veloute with smoked trout roe on toasted bread and Nantucket bay scallops with corn, leek, and black trumpet succotash; main courses including Scotch pheasant chestnut and giblet stuffing with truffled pan jus and wreckfish, poached in duck fat with braised spicy kale, hazelnuts, and apples; and desserts including vanilla and cinnamon souffle with graham cracker ice cream and chocolate and butterscotch bread pudding, caramel buttons, and sweet thyme.
The special menus are priced at $75 per person. On Christmas Eve, seatings are available from 5:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. On New Years Eve, seatings are available from 6:30 p.m. to midnight and come with a midnight champagne toast. Call (202) 974-4900 for reservations.
