A few special touches turn this classic into a sophisticated dinner
Despite what people may think, my family’s holiday dinner is anything but “chefy.” This is the time when I avoid overly complicated presentations and stick with classic dishes. But I always like to add a little something—a fancy garnish or an unusual ingredient—to mark the specialness of the occasion. This holiday menu, which combines family favorites with a few beloved menu items from my restaurants, AOC and Lucques, is in tune with this spirit. While all the dishes are straightforward at heart, a few twists make them feel elegant and unusual.
