Also in Santa Monica…image

Upper West pulls out all the stops this New Year’s Eve. 

Chef Nick Shipp always amazes me. For the big event, Shipp offers delectable entree choices of braised lamb shank, or sweet and spicey crusted tuna loin or a vegetarian option of ricotta gnocchi. Sides such as smoked goat cheese grits, celery root-winter squash hash and more.

As a prelude to the main course, sous vide shrimp cocktail will tease you, along with a second course of potato, apple and leek soup with braised bacon and brioche toast (vegatarian option available). 

For dessert, enjoy an exquisite butterscotch custard topped with Jameson whiskey whipped cream, salted pistachio toffee, cassisaPomegranate.
