It’s almost 2010! If you’re planning to dine out on New Year’s Eve, we hope you’ll join us at SOHO. In addition to our regular dinner menu, we’ll offer seven special dishes for the evening. Please click here to make reservations or call 770-801-0069. 
 

Many will ring in the New Year with a champagne toast (we’ll certainly have plenty of bubbly on hand at the restaurant on December 31). If you’re raising a glass with friends and family this week, SOHO’s wine expert, Lars Snavely, suggests popping open one of the following bottles: Francois Montand Brut (approx. $12), Nicolas Feuillatte NV Brut (approx. $30), or a Duval-Leroy Brut NV (approx. $35). And, don’t forget the Gruet sparkling wines, recommended last week.
