two new year’s eve menus

Many Eugene restaurants are open for New Year’s Eve, and several have special menus.  I’m posting (with slight edits for formatting) two special New Year’s Eve menus that have appeared on Facebook, one from Red Agave and one from Osteria Sfizio.  Do call for reservations, especially if you’re planning to go to the opera and need early seating at Red Agave.

What else is cooking for New Year’s Eve, Eugene?
