Plan the Perfect New Year's Menu
Ring in the New Year with a five-star feast! Join entertaining expert Alexandra Hedin along with noted Seattle Chef Jacques as they tempt your taste buds with a special menu featuring two spectacular selections for your New Year's Eve celebration: Metropolitan Market's prime rib and our very own Metropolitain Champagne.
100% natural, our prime rib is raised locally in the Northwest on an all-vegetarian diet, resulting in the best-tasting beef. It's then hand-trimmed and dry-aged to perfection for a flavorful, tender, juicy centerpiece for your New Year's Eve feast.
And what New Year's celebration is complete without Champagne? We wanted the best, so we went to France to find our signature Metropolitain Champagne. We bought it direct to pass the savings onto you, which means great quality Champagne at a truly great price.
