This limited-edition New Year’s Eve menu is the perfect excuse to dine at Crossroads Kitchen! Before the meal starts, you’ll get an artisanal vegan cheese plate to nosh on. The first official course is a leek and parsnip soup, followed by a radish avocado or romaine Caesar salad. Next up is a mushroom tart or plate of stuffed zucchini blossoms for the appetizer and squash ravioli or lion’s mane mushroom scarpariello for the main course. Last but certainly not least, dig into a caramelized apple pecan snow globe with pear sorbet or chocolate brownie ice cream sundae for dessert.
