Three Ways to Bring in 2016 at the Epicurean Hotel
Looking for a sophisticated and spectacular way to bring in the New Year? The Epicureanhas you covered with three ways you can bring in 2016 — in style!
Conveniently located in the trendy SoHo neighborhood, the Epicurean offers amazing options for your special night out on the town.
Dinner at Élevage:
Start your night with a fabulous dinner at Élevage! Celebrate your accomplishments from 2015 with delicious dining options and flavorful cuisine. Whether you choose one of the classic dishes crafted from Executive Chef, Chad Johnson, who also reigns as the James Beard Best Chef: South Semi-Finalist (2012, 2014) or decide to indulge in a decadent dessert and some of our finest champagnes; you’ll leave with a satisfied palate and memories to cherish always.
Cocktails at EDGE:
After a lovely dinner at Élevage, head up to the rooftop at EDGE and keep the party going! Here you’ll enjoy unique, hand-crafted cocktails while you count down from 2015 to 2016. Gaze over Tampa’s skyline and enjoy watching the fireworks launched from downtown. Try the CC Revolution, a twist on a Champagne Cocktail: Carpano Antica, Cappelletti and Zonin Prosecco. This celebratory cocktail with fizz adds complexity from Carpano’s Antica Formula vermouth and a hint of bitterness from Cappeletti liquer. The Prosecco provides the fizz to a trio of Italian delights.
My other favorite, Be on Thyme: Fontana Pisco infused with Strawberry, St. Germain, Honey & Thyme. The fresh sprig of thyme draws you in to the mysterious complexity of Fontana Pisco. Layered with rich, exotic flavors of falernum and honey, all held together with St. Germain. Enjoy the house-made falernum, made with over-proof Jamaican rum, lime zest, fresh ginger and clove; a real powerhouse of an ingredient. Consider it a complex approach to a Bee’s Knees.
Whether you’re a regular visitor or a newbie, I guarantee you’ll love the rooftop view paired with hand-crafted libations.
New Year’s Day Brunch at Élevage:
Did you party a little too hard on New Year’s Eve? Cure those hangover blues with the best brunch in town! Indulge in your first meal of 2016 at Élevage and brunch like Bacchus. Enjoy a three-course meal or choose à la carte options from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. A few of my favorites: Brioche French Toast, Pumpkin Crepes and the Brunch Burger. Check out the entire brunch menu here.
For those that want to keep the celebration going, enjoy the classic brunch beverages or dive into a champagne tasting with some of the finest champagnes from around the world. To make your reservation visit us on OpenTable here or call 813-999-8726.
