Sabor Saveur is commemorating 2009 (the Wicker Park Mexican-French fusion restaurant opened its doors in October) and ushering in 2010 with a flavorful New Year’s Eve celebration on Thursday, Dec. 31.
The restaurant will offer two dinner seatings (6 p.m. and 9 p.m.), both featuring a festive five-course menu with a choice of entrees for $75 per person (excluding tax and gratuity). Chef Yanitzin Sanchez will showcase her culinary flair with such dishes as a Saint Jacques scallop as a starter and an entree of black cod al pibil. The full New Year’s Eve menu is outlined below.
Making this soiree an even more affordable New Year’s Eve option is Sabor Saveur’s BYOB policy, so be sure to bring your own bubbly to this special celebration.
