Food, friends and fun: Celebrating 2012 at Seviche with friends.

Several years ago, I started celebrating New Year’s Day by booking a large table at a local establishment – usually Lynn’s Paradise Cafe – and then filling it with all manner of friends.

This year was no different except instead of dressing in our jammies for Lynn’s annual PJ party, 16 of my favorite people met at Seviche for what was one of the best brunches I’ve ever had – and that’s in addition to being in the midst of an incredible, eclectic group of friends.

Chef Anthony Lamas and his staff outdid themselves with a brunch that included roast pork, fresh seviches, chorizo manchego grits and numerous other dishes, not to mention a divine Bloody Mary bar (the Chino Latino – wasabi ginger – was absolutely delicious) that was the perfect accoutrement to a brunch filled with food and friendship.

Happy New Year? So far, yes indeed.
