Longhi’s Preps New Year’s Feast

Longhi's InteriorLonghi’s Ala Moana will serve a special five-course dinner from 9:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. on Thursday, December 31, 2015, for those seeking a great party venue to welcome in the New Year while taking in a spectacular view of the fireworks.

Guests who dine during this time slot will be guaranteed their table for the rest of the evening so that they may enjoy a musical performance by owner Charlie Longhi and his 7-piece band the Funk-A-Holics, who really be livening things up from 10:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m.

The classic menu will be served from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., but those who opt to dine later will be able to enjoy inspired courses such as an Argentinean red shrimp ceviche, Caprese soup, endive antipasto salad, a choice rack of lamb, seafood risotto, sesame seared ahi or herb-roasted chicken as an entrée, and a dessert trio. The special dinner is affordably priced at $90 plus tax and gratuity, and includes party favors.

Those wanting to start their New Year with great music, dancing, and cocktails are able to have access to the party by paying a $15 cover charge. Bottle service will be available, and the band the Funk-A-Holics will perform its brand of high energy funk, rock, and soul music.

“For the gastronome, our special menu for the New Year’s Eve celebration showcases fabulous new takes on our traditional family recipes, including a number of new culinary creations. For those who want to really ring in the New Year with a bang, we will have high energy funk, rock and soul beats to which you can dance your socks off. My friends—who are some of the islands’ most accomplished musicians—and I plan to perform some of our favorite songs to get people into the celebratory mood,” says Charlie Longhi, owner of Longhi’s Ala Moana. “Come party with us and see why Longhi’s is still the happening place in town.”
