CityZen Reveals Its Crowdsourced New Year’s Eve Menu

Winners include: foie gras shabu shabu, herb-roasted Maine lobster, and more.

Instead of agonizing over a New Year’s Eve menu this year, Eric Ziebold at CityZen did the smart thing and let his loyal diners decide. Three weeks ago he sent out a “ballot” with candidates for each of the eight courses he plans to serve on the 31st. The dozens of choices represented the most popular dishes from the acclaimed restaurant’s eight years at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel.

Now, we have the winning menu. The sold-out feast will set diners back $225—unless they want to add pairings by sommelier Andy Myers, which costs an additional $200.
