Ring in 2019 with Dario’s Steakhouse’s Elegant Prix Fixe Menu and Celebration
Every day of the year, Dario’s Steakhouse & Seafood, named after owner David Herrera’s youngest son, Dario, invites guests to enjoy premium selections of perfectly prepared certified Angus beef steaks, succulent seafood and an extensive wine list, all within an upscale dining environment.
On New Year’s Eve, however, the elegance gets turned up a notch.
On Dec. 31, the restaurant will invite customers to take part in a New Year’s feast, featuring an elaborate three-course menu. The event, which consistently ranks among the best New Year’s Eve events in Cypress, is in its 10th year, says restaurant manager J.R. Navarette.
“After 3 p.m. we’ll start with the New Year’s Eve menu,” he says. “It’ll be reservations only, and it always brings out a good crowd.”
J.R. says more than 350 people will come out for the legendary local meal, which features a soup, salad, and appetizer for the first course; a rack of lamb, lobster tail or mouthwatering steak for the second course; and a luxurious slice of chocolate cake or cheesecake for dessert.
This year, the restaurant is even looking into offering Japanese Wagyu steaks, which it buys from an exclusive local vendor.
“You won’t find this kind of steak at a lot of restaurants,” he says.
With the cooking talent of Cesar Alvaro, the Dario’s head chef who cut his chops for years at restaurants in downtown Houston, and the vision of David, who’s brought his enterprising touch to a number of Cypress-area restaurants—including Alicia’s Mexican Grille and Galiana’s Bakery & Café—New Year’s Eve at Dario’s is a can’t-miss event.
“After 10 years, we’ve got this down,” J.R. says. “It’s going to be flawless.”
