On New Year’s Day, Lark on the Park will serve special menus to help you start the year on the right foot. We recently got to preview one of the dinner features, and Lark will also serve a New Year’s Brunch beginning at 11 a.m.
For dinner, you might try the pork tenderloin. Mustard-crusted and topped with breadcrumbs, it was flavorful and juicy. Served with some traditional New Year’s sides, it may just be the way to ensure a great 2015.
Black-eyed peas make a great accompaniment to the delicious pork. Turns out, they are also rich in protein, fiber, calcium and vitamin A. And, if you believe tradition, they can make you more prosperous in the year ahead.
Whereas cabbage is a tradition in much of the rest of the country, here in the South, collard greens (another late crop) is said to be another key to good fortune. If each bite is indeed worth $1,000 in the new year, then you will be happy to know you’ll enjoy the greens at Lark.
Of course, there’s always something great to drink at Lark too. The Hibiscus Mule is fantastic. The beer selection is top-notch; I got to sample a holiday offering from Southern Tier. There’s also Lark Punch. Linger over a few choices and you may just feel fortune smiling on you before you head out and into the year ahead.
