For those procrastinators yet to nail down New Years Eve dinner plans, may
we suggest dialing 305-893-4211 and making reservations at chef Dewey
LoSasso's wonderful North One 10?
There are still seats available, and the cost is a more-than-reasonable
$60 ($75 with champagne toast) -- especially considering how enticing
the menu is. To begin, little bites of lamb and black eyed pea wontons;
wild mushroom crostini; roasted oysters with spinach and brie; and
white truffle garlic bread. Then a choice of a grilled prawn "pretzel"
with mustard sauce or Angus beef tartare garnished with root vegetable
chips, dried tomatoes, and "crispy truffle". Next course is choice of a
smoked duck/mozzarella/haricot vert salad or lobster risotto with
Main courses sound particularly fetching: Filet mignon with ossobuco
chowder, or black grouper with crab pierogi in a basil reduction, or
(in my mind the most tempting), double cut lamb chop with BBQ lamb
spare ribs, pumpkin pancake and pomegranate sauce. Table tastings of
berry shortbread, chocolate bread pudding, and maple syrup brulee cap
A last tidbit of advice:Try to make it one of your New Years' resolutions to stop your damn procrastinating.
