Awaken Your Senses with these Reveillon Dinner Desserts
A tradition that can be traced back to the 19th century, reveillon dinners were a way for Catholic families to enjoy a family feast after a long day of fasting on Christmas Eve. The tradition faded for a while, but it’s back with a twist. Adopted by some of the best restaurants in the city, reveillon dinners allow foodies to get in the holiday spirit by offering prix-fixe meals—some menus starting under $50.
