New Year’s Eve at TQK
A multi-course dinner inspired by Salvador Dali’s “Les dîners de Gala”
5:45pm-2am, multiple seatings (tickets)

Let’s face it, 2016 was downright psychedelic. To send a prayer up to the gods, Chef Cory Estelle is planning a multi-course meal inspired by surrealist Salvador Dali’s art/cookbook “Les Dîners de Gala”. The work is a remembrance of the opulent dinner parties hosted by Dali and Gala, his wife and muse.

We are taking reservations for three seatings:
1) First seating 5:45-6:15pm, ending 7:15-7:45pm ($50)
2) Second seating 7:45-8:15pm, ending 9:15-9:45pm ($50)
3) Third seating 9:45-2am ($60). This last seating is inclusive of a midnight sparkling cider toast. Noisemakers will abound.

All diners will be welcomed with a glass of our “Love Drunk” punch. An optional beer ($25) or cider ($30) pairing is available.

*Note: Price not inclusive of gratuity (payable at the end of your meal).

Kick 2017 off on the right foot with us!

“Les dîners de Gala is uniquely devoted to the pleasures of taste. If you are a disciple of one of those calorie-counters who turn the joys of eating into a form of punishment, close this book at once; it is too lively, too aggressive, and far too impertinent for you.”

– Salvador Dalí
