For New Year’s Eve, guests can fuel up on KELVIN’s celebratory menu, created by Executive Chef Kevin Harry, before all the fun begins, with two seatings at 6 p.m. and at 9 p.m.
The four-course, prix-fixe menu is priced at $85 per person and features dishes such as Sweet Corn Veloute with Dungeness Crab and Roasted Corn Kernels, a refreshing Meyer Lemon Sorbet set on a Gold Leaf Champagne Jelly, Tequila Candied Halibut with a Warm Fingerling Potato and Tomato Salad Watercress, topped off with Saffron Vanilla Sauce and a Café Con Leche Crème Brulee with Whipped Cream and Shortbread Cookie.
After dinner, guests are invited to celebrate the night in the Living Room for W San Diego’s “Unmasq’d” NYE Masquerade Party. Party-goers will slip into complimentary, festive masks and unveil their swaggering alter-ago for the last few hours of 2012.
Insiders will enjoy sounds by Violinist Yvonne Shay, DJ Tim Thompson, COLOUR VISION and DJ Ayla Simone. A midnight countdown will toast farewell to 2012 and welcome the New Year with a hosted flute of bubbly for every guest.
