Ziziki’s Surprised Us With Lucky Vasilopita And A Lavish New Year’s Day Brunch

Valsopita (1)

We recently told you our favorite good luck dishes from across the globe, and had a difficult time locating a proper Greek Vasilopita. After many more stones turned we finally found one. Actually, they are making this just for you, so take advantage!

Preston Hollow Ziziki’s is offering Vasilopita on its New Year’s Eve menu. This warm, rich, and buttery cake is the perfect ending to a great meal, and is a fun way to ring in the New Year. The Greek tradition dictates that you serve the cake to the youngest first, then the next to youngest, and so on, working up in age, and the person who finds a hidden coin or trinkets will have good luck for the year. Ziziki’s won’t be surprising you with any hidden objects baked inside the cake, but do hope that everyone who enjoys this fun tradition with us will find good fortune all year long.   Continue reading

A Knuckle Sandwich From Parigi For The Perfect One-Two Punch

Check out the beautiful Knuckle Sandwich from Parigi. This is a cheesy mix of chunky lobster, bacon and scallions atop perfect golden brown and buttery toast. The first bite sends the juicy center down your cheek, and delivers a quick crunchy flavor bomb with the mix of bacon and lobster.

The sidecar of tomato-avocado salad is a perfect accompaniment to this meal, especially if you add a Bloody Mary to the brunch. This Mary comes with her own salad, and is crowned with a crab claw for good measure.    Continue reading
