Hors D’oeuvres for New Year’s Eve
2021 is just around the corner which means planning a festive and tasteful menu for ringing in the new year. While the holiday season may be a little different this year, there’s no reason to forgo the celebratory staples that New Year’s Eve brings—we suggest fresh oysters, caviar, and of course champagne or something bubbly to drink to pop when the clock strikes 12.
Union Market’s seafood counter has an array of seasonal oysters to choose from, including local East Coast varieties like Montauk Pearls, as well as West Coast oysters like Kusshi and Kumamoto, all responsibly sourced and fully traceable. Enjoy them on the half-shell with a squeeze of lemon or mignonette—or for an indulgent alternative, try our recipe for roasted oysters with a tarragon beurre noisette.
We’ll also have a variety of sustainable caviar on hand to help you celebrate in style. If really want to indulge this New Year’s Eve, be sure to try our finest Asian Premier caviar on blinis with a dollop crème fraîche. Remember, caviar is best served cold with a non-metallic spoon. For more ways to enjoy caviar, check out our serving suggestions and storage tips.
Here’s to a happy and healthy New Year!
