Craving Friday’s Station

What was for New Year’s Eve Dinner? We celebrated with an amazing New Year’s Eve dinner at Friday’s Station on the 18th floor of the Harrah’s Hotel and Casino, where we are staying. As soon as we walked in, we were greeted by a woman who looked identical to the host at the Sage Room. Coincidentally, the two hosts are identical twin sisters. My boyfriend and I were able to get squeezed in tonight since we switched our reservation from last night. We were so pooped yesterday that we just stayed in and ordered room service, but the change worked out perfectly. There was a preset Menu tonight for the holiday and for the appetizer, I ordered the chilled Baja shrimp, scallops and lobster cocktail, which consisted of Mexican white shrimp, Calico scallops, and Baja-style lobster with avocado, cucumber, and cilantro served in a short martini glass. The second course I enjoyed was the Dungeness crab caesar salad. My entrée was the duet of sea bass and shell-fish brochette; pan-fried chilean sea bass, paired with a tiger prawn and diver scallop served with pineapple-rum Buerre Blanc brochette, rife pilaf, and asparagus. The dessert was a trio of vanilla bean ice cream, mixed berries in anglaise cream, and a chocolate marquise topped with a little animated clock with a 2013 top-hat made out of white chocolate. Like the Kitchen 19 in the Harvey’s Hotel and Casino, this restaurant is on the top floor of the Harrah’s and has a great view, with floor to ceiling windows. Our dinner ended with fire works over the lake that I viewed from my seat at the dinner table. This was definitely a great way to end our last night here in Tahoe and also a great way to start off the new year.
