From Bastille Day to New Year’s Eve, L’Eiffel Bistrot & Creperie in South Barrington pulls out all the stops to celebrate holidays in fabulous French style and this New Year’s Eve is no exception.
L’Eiffel’s head chef, Pepe Castillo, has been busy planning a four-course French menu for a New Year’s Eve to remember as we welcome 2015 on Wednesday, December 31st.
L’Eiffel’s four-course New Year’s Eve meal will be served in two seatings. The first seating is from 5:00 p.m. to 7:30 and the price per person is $45 for three courses or $50 for the full, four-course option. The second seating is from 9 :00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. and the price per person is $55 for the three course option or $60 for the four course menu.
They will be featuring live entertainment, including belly dancers, a DJ and dance floor, during the second seating only. To be sure you have a table waiting, reservations for the evening are highly recommended. Here’s a look at the delicious menu they’re planning:
