Several years ago, I started celebrating New Yearâ€™s Day by booking a large table at a local establishment â€“ usually Lynnâ€™s Paradise Cafe â€“ and then filling it with all manner of friends.
This year was no different except instead of dressing in our jammies for Lynnâ€™s annual PJ party, 16 of my favorite people met at Seviche for what was one of the best brunches Iâ€™ve ever had â€“ and thatâ€™s in addition to being in the midst of an incredible, eclectic group of friends.
Chef Anthony Lamas and his staff outdid themselves with a brunch that included roast pork, fresh seviches, chorizo manchego grits and numerous other dishes, not to mention a divine Bloody Mary bar (the Chino Latino â€“ wasabi ginger â€“ was absolutely delicious) that was the perfect accoutrement to a brunch filled with food and friendship.
Happy New Year? So far, yes indeed.
