What To Wear To A Super-Stylish S.F. New Year's Eve Dinner!

email
Got New Year's Eve plans? If you're more for low-key gatherings than elbow-to-elbow crowded clubs, might we suggest heading to one of the city's coolest restos to say goodbye to 2011 in grand style? One sure-to-be-fun option: Starbelly's special NYE dinner, which includes dishes like seared Sonoma foie gras with huckleberry and black-tea compote and toasted brioche, followed by a chocolate pot de creme with cocoa nibs and whipped cream, and — naturally — a glass of celebratory bubbly. And that's just a sampling of what will be up for grabs at the Castro eatery, which is serving up a handful of additional, equally yummy options for $68 prix fixe or a la carte all night long. Of course, you'll need a getup worthy of this feast — and all of the dancing in the Castro you'll be doing afterward. To solve that conundrum, check out our six-ingredient tuxedo-inspired outfit, and get ready for a rockin' 2012.
