On New Year's Eve, the arts-focused fine dining joint Esmé plans to unveil a new installation called "Champagne Tower," a structure designed by artist Benjamin Edgar to house the champagne that guests sip during the canapés portion of the restaurant's tasting menu. In honor of the debut (and the arrival of 2022), chef Jenner Tomaska's crafted an eight-course tasting experience that will include an hour-long reception with passed canapés. The menu comes with a glass of champagne, but you can boost the celebratory vibe with beverage pairings from beverage director Tia Barrett.
Hours: Seating at 8pm
Price: $450; optional beverage pairings $150–$250
