The December Hit List: Shabu Plus, Michele’s, Moon Rabbit, and More

By

Looking back to this time last year, we’re all the more grateful to have dinner by the bar at Ellē, or around a lazy susan at Peking Gourmet Inn, and not pressed to be eating under a vinyl igloo with propane heaters in the cold. We’ve also learned the new “normal” is anything but, and to bank on uncertainty in the future.

So we’re intent on closing out the year with no regrets. We’re starting with bourbon hot cider and hushpuppies at Garden District, and a snack of blue fin otoro tartare with miso bagna cauda at Shabu Plus, pork tortellini with butternut squash brodo at Thompson Italian as our pasta course, followed by the roast duck breast with manchamantel mole at Maïz 64, and bananas Foster ice cream sundae at Michele’s for dessert. This epic (theoretical) feast, and much more, on your December Hit List.
