With creative cuisine and cocktails, Esme makes for an delicious Holiday meal in a modern vintage setting. Most dishes are $30 and under, and everything is handmade (including the veggie burger, yum!). It’s both kid-friendly and cozy enough for a date. So put on that Christmas sweater, book a table, and get your egg nog served to you before the big day. But I’d do it fast, as reservations are filling up quickly!
Christmas Day Dinner
Reynard, located on the first floor of The Wythe Hotel, will be hosting a prix fixe 4 course dinner that is not to be missed. Dishes such as roasted rib of beef with horseradish kefir and duck liver toast on pumpkin crostini are on the menu, which finishes with a festive Bûche de Noël for dessert.
