Love them or hate them, the 78th Annual Golden Globe Awards take place on Sunday, February 28 and despite controversy, in true Hollywood fashion, the show will go on. Hosted by comedians Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, the bi-coastal ceremony will air live on NBC starting at 5 p.m. with Fey in New York’s Rainbow Room and Poehler at The Beverly Hilton. If watching the show is a guilty pleasure for you, here are some special menus to help the jeers and cheers at home.
While the Moet & Chandon won’t be flowing in the Hilton ballroom as usual this year, the official Champagne of the Golden Globes will commemorate its 30th anniversary with the awards by partnering with Cocktail Courier to offer a limited-edition cocktail kit featuring the Moet Golden Fizz. The kit serves six and features a bottle of Moet & Chandon Imperial Brut, specialty glassware, honey syrup, cardamom bitters, ginger turmeric tea, dehydrated lemons for garnish and as well as fresh lemons.
Akasha in Culver City has an extensive party-watch menu available on Tock, which includes the golden old fashioned to go, with calamansi lime and kumquat infused bourbon, Sicilian cordial, agave, cardamom and orange bitters as well as plenty of Mediterranean appetizers, rib eyes for two, spring pea risotto and a cookie box for dessert.
Freedman’s in Silver Lake has a platter for two for pickup which includes smoked Scottish salmon, smoked whitefish, whipped cream cheese, tomato, onions, cucumber, capers and bagels. Toast the winners with house martinis, cocktails and natural wine to go.
L’Antica Pizzeria da Michele will be offering a one-night-only takeout special which feeds two to three and includes five savory courses: truffle arancini, gnocco fritto, Margherita pizza, double Caesar salad, and cacio e pepe. A choice of two cocktails, either the Japanese whisky-based Fool’s Gold or the fresh and melon-based Don Francesco—can be added for $20.
Lucques Catering is offering a decadent lineup that will make anybody feel like a winner, featuring Russian Oestra caviar and blinis, lobster rolls, seafood platters, rib eye steaks as well as leek and goat cheese tartlets – a far cry from the rubber chicken and frozen rolls that have made appearances at Globe Awards in the past. There’s a reason why everybody gets a little tipsy during the ceremony.
