The evening commences with the unveiling of hidden prophecies from Lunar New Year’s fortune cards using feng shui coins. Guests can indulge in a Lucky Rabbit Martini, crafted with tangerine bourbon, orange elixir, all spice, lime juice, and simple syrup, and toast to enlightened days ahead.
In honor of the holiday, Executive Chef Tim Nickey will serve lobster Cantonese with longevity noodles and ginger-scallion Chinese black bean sauce, blended with garlic, ginger, garlic, soy sauce, and Shaoxing wine.
