I've always been a fan of New Year's Eve. I'm reminded of these great celebrations my mom would have with friends ringing in the New Year. My sister and I would beg to stay up late dancing with everyone and running into our street right before midnight so we could blow noise makers in celebration of the New Year. Somehow, as I've gotten older, the idea of driving on New Years Eve stops me from going out. I tend to stay at home and ring in the New Year on my own. This year was different and boy was I in for a treat.
My friend and I decided to enjoy the tasting menu at Madeleine Bistro. I've eaten there a few times and have never left disappointed. I was in for an amazing evening of food.
