As one of the city’s swankiest destinations for life’s celebratory occasions, the revered Michael Mina restaurant is putting a sugary spin on New Year’s Eve to make it that much more delicious and auspicious.
On the final evening of 2016, Executive Chef Joe Palma and Head Pastry Chef Derkje Steenblik will present a colossal croque-en-bouche tower. This traditional pyramid-shaped French dessert – composed of dozens upon dozens of individual choux pastry balls – is an apt choice for the festive affair, made all the more sparkling with the addition of Champagne-cream filling and a secret trinket hidden within the soaring masterpiece.
After the seven-course final seating, which includes a midnight Champagne toast, guests can end their meal on a sweet note by enjoying a complimentary puff plucked by a white-gloved server from the teetering golden peak. An extra surprise: the sneaky chefs will plant a trinket inside one of the golden “ticket” choux balls. The lucky recipient will start the New Year with good fortune, winning a complimentary night’s stay in one of the Grand Premier rooms of Four Seasons Hotel Washington, redeemable that night only.
So take a bite for a lucky night – whether or not one wins, the decadent dessert will certainly bring sweetness in the New Year.
