Here’s what we’re having this Lunar New Year

Always festive. That is how we celebrate the Lunar New Year during the pre-pandemic era with everyone dressed in their best red outfits, practicing traditions, with noodles flying in the air, and dragons and lions dancing to the oriental beats. While get-togethers aren’t suitable in our pandemic climate today, that doesn’t mean that welcoming the Year of the Tiger should be less joyous. Do that by serving the best cheers and eats this season, gifting you and your loved ones good fortune and great moments shared through a special dining experience.
