La Festa di San Francisco 2013

In the spirit of Italy’s traditional New Year’s celebration, La Festa di San Francisco, An Italian-Inspired New Year’s Eve Celebration at Hotel Vitale begins with a hearty dinner party for friends and family.  The New Year’s Eve Dinner features a five-course menu of soulful, handcrafted Italian cuisine created by Americano Executive Chef Kory Stewart, paired with wines.  Offered in seatings at 6 and 7 p.m., the dinner begins with a celebratory flute of Perrier Jouet Grand Brut Finale Champagne and a first course of Mozzarella Buratta with Horseradish Marinated Beets; followed by a second course of Maine Diver Scallop and Blue Prawn Sausage with Citrus, Oil-cured Olives, and Avocado; and a third course of Pumpkin and Mascarpone Tortellini with Black Truffles.  The main course features Chef Kory’s Red Wine-braised Short Ribs and Grilled Ribeye with Sunchoke Soubise, Black Trumpet Mushrooms, and Salmoriglio.  After the savory courses, guests are offered an Orange Creamsicle and Champagne Float, followed by Chocolate Budino for dessert. 


At 9:00 p.m., the celebration continues as dinner guests and newly arriving revelers gather at Hotel Vitale for part two of La Festa di San Francisco:  the New Year’s Eve Dance Party.  It’s time to dance, eat, drink, and get ready for the New Year’s countdown, with an open full bar featuring premium spirits; passed and stationed hors d’oeuvres; upgraded bottle service by request; New Year’s party favors; and a live DJ spinning irresistible dance music.  At Hotel Vitale, guests have the opportunity to enjoy one of the best spots in San Francisco to view the New Year’s fireworks spectacular – another hallmark of Italy’s New Year’s celebration.
