With all the excitement up and about for the arrival of Christmas day, it would seem rather odd that we're bringing you a list of promotions for the New Year this week. We ensure you it's no oddity, as filled with the season's spirit and hype; it's only natural that you'd be left hanging with extra energy even after 25 December. So to ensure you keep the party going, and not fall flat, we present to you a spread of eight restaurants and bars for your New Year celebrations.
Fifty Five, Centara Grand at CentralWorld
Take your pick at the grand display of fresh seafood, and have the chefs at Fifty Five Restaurant prepare it specially for you.
Holler in the New Year with a parade of exquisite cuisines, at the most luxurious of settings, at Fifty Five Restaurant. On feature for the evening is the "Champagne Buffet" where an splendid display of fresh seafood -- such as Maine lobster, scampi, sea urchin, slipper lobster and more -- awaits you. To ensure your crustacean of choice remains as succulent as it looks, it will be prepared only when it's ordered. But if you're not up for hard-shells, the restaurant also offers smoked salmon, Foie Gras, Pata negra ham, Wagyu beef, and French lamb on their line-up.
After your dinner, don't miss your chance to enjoy the firework celebrations on the roof top Red Sky Bar (complimentary entry to bar), as well as a specially made French grand dessert-buffet, along with a French cheese trolley -- a sweet way to usher in the New Year.
Price: THB 8,555++ per person (includes free flow of Champagne, Bruno Paillard Brut Premiere Cuvee)
