New Year's Eve is a Night to Remember at Lombardi Restaurants

All Restaurants Featuring New Year’s Eve Specialty Menus


If you're making preparations to celebrate the end of '12 or the beginning of 2013, one idea is to kick off the year at a Lombardi Family Concepts restaurant. (There are many in DFW from which to choose). Join Lounge 31 for pre-dinner cocktails or post-dinner celebrating, dance the night away with live performances and flowing champagne at Cafe des Artistes, or make your last meal of 2012 one you will never forget at Bistro 31, Toulouse Café and Bar, Taverna, La Fiorentina, or Sangria.

All restaurants will feature New Year's Eve-inspired special menus in addition to regular dinner menus. Each New Year's Eve dinner menu will only be available December 31st, and consists of dishes specially created by each restaurant's Executive Chef.
