New Year's Eve at Tastebuds American Bistro

New Year's Eve at Tastebuds Americn Bistro always is a good time. Here are a few reasons:

  • Gracious owners and staff - Andrew even sported a Happy New Year necklace
  • Fabulous patrons - we all arrived in packs of two, but quickly scrunched up tables to celebrate together. Bow ties and sparkles graced the group.
  • Cherry Manhattans (with real cherries!)
  • Reasonably-priced wine
  • Delicious four course meal
  • A sparkling toast
  • Walking home just in time to see the New Year arrive

A few photos of the meal:
