Sure, I’ve consumed a lavish eight-course meal before. But 12 courses? That’s what chef Pajo Bruich is creating for Enotria Restaurant Wine Bar’s (1431 Del Paso Boulevard) special New Year’s Eve dinner in honor of the year 2013. My aforementioned eight-course $110-meal at Morimoto Napa last year featured fish, steak and lobster. Bruich’s meal looks to be similarly diverse, with dishes that include caviar, short ribs, lobster, oysters and buckwheat. The dinner will be priced at $150 per person, and there’s an optional 12-course wine pairing chosen by Enotria’s wine director Matthew Lewis for $90. If you want one last night of extravagant gluttony before beginning your new year’s diet, you should definitely splurge on this meal. Bruich is a renowned local chef—recognized for his work at both at Enotria and the now-closed Lounge on 20 in Midtown. Pro tip: pace yourself. For more information, call (916) 922-6792 or visit
