It’s almost the end of 2017 — the year of “hits that keep on coming” — and if that isn’t a reason to celebrate, well, we don’t know what is.
Raise a glass of the good stuff, the really good stuff, at chef Nico Romo’s new spot NICO starting this Friday. The modern French oyster bar will be offering specials on Veuve Clicquot that will run through the new year.
Friday, order a $68 bottle to pair with your plate overflowing with fruits de mer. Then, Christmas Eve until NYE, take advantage of a $99 special that includes a bottle and a dozen oysters, a $99 special for a bottle and foie gras, or go out with a bang and order the $199 special for a bottle of Veuve and caviar service.

Last night we got the first look at NICO, the new Coleman Blvd. restaurant from Chef Nico Romo. Formerly the head chef at Fish, Romo brings his European training and locally-sourced ingredients to Shem Creek.
