Happy new year, loves!
It’s been three days since 2018 started and I thought about sharing with you what I did on New Year’s Eve. This time I spent my NYE differently than the other years – more quiet and cozy. Yes, this time I stayed in Germany again for once.
Last year I celebrated the new year in Sydney watching the amazing fireworks at the Opera House and went clubbing after that. I had a wild time in Sydney and I am glad to have experienced it. Till this day, I still love to talk about my time in Australia. However, two years ago I spent New Year’s Eve on a Ski party in Austria and I was in New York the year before that. But let’s move on because I want to tell you more about my cozy New Year’s Eve 2018 at a fine dining restaurant Medici (check it out here) in Frankfurt.
The most important thing to start a perfect evening and to end a wonderful year with is to pick a nice and comfortable outfit for a delicious dinner. For this special occasion I picked my new dotted blouse with a neckline since it is elegant but yet not too boring, combined with a wide cut black pair of trousers. The dotted shirt is an inspiration I got from Australia but it is now sold everywhere in Germany. My trousers are Scandinavian styled and also available in most places.
After my outfit was all set, I was finally ready to kick off the evening at Medici Restaurant & Bar. The restaurant prepared a set 5 course menu for New Year’s Eve. You can find the New Year’s Eve menu at the bottom if you are interested. Other than that, I will show you my dishes in the following.
We started our 5 course meal with delicious tuna steak with some kimchi and papaya salad. The portion was tiny though and I ate it within 1 minute. It was too good to eat it slowly but I would definitely recommend this dish – my favorite!
The second dish was some foie gras with figs. I liked the figs the most. The foie gras was a bit sweet and tasted like a dessert. The second round was a bit too early for something which tastes like dessert.
Medici served pork belly for the third round, the classic. It was marinated in teriyaki sauce combined with some curry. I would assume it is not a vegetarian’s favorite but I’m not, so I would recommend this to you as a delicious and interesting dish.
Fish with chickpeas are always good and healthy but a little too dry for me. But the taste was good though, I just complain at a high level – luxury problem.
The last dish before Medici served dessert was some soft US-Black Angus beef. This was a delicious dish since I am a big fan of beef steak.
For those who are interested in getting a better impression of Medici, you can find the full menu above. Unfortunately, I didn’t take any pictures of the dessert in case you’re wondering why I didn’t show it to you. It is listed on the menu though.
Well, after a great evening spending at Medici and doing some fireworks (you’re allowed to do your own fireworks in Germany), I spent my 1st of January resting and enjoying my christmas tree & decoration for the last time before taking it down. Hope you all had a great start into 2018, loves.
