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.
