Yelp Elites were treated to spectacular views of the Georgetown waterfront while dining on a six-course chef tasting menu with wine pairings at Nick's Riverside, a local family owned restaurant dishing up classic American fare.
"This was an intimate affair and Nick's staff treated us like royalty," Alexis B shared. Yelpers dined on a specially curated menu that included French onion soup, grilled Malpeque oyster, arugula salad, sautéed black bass with black figs, zucchini ribbons and preserved lemon butter sauce, a grilled trio of meat including veal, duck breast and lamb chops, a white bean casserole, holiday cookies and petit fours. "The sauteed black bass was delicious - I could have eaten that all day. I'm pretty sure this is the point in the meal where I regretted not wearing stretchy pants," Jamie N repors.
To get in the holiday spirit, the group participated in a White Elephant gift exchange where guests were asked to wrap up their holiday cast aways. "I won Suzy a Muscle Milk protein bar... I hope she plans on lifting weights some time soon!" shares Victoria B.
And that's not all! All Elites left with a potted succulent courtesy of Yelp as well as a goodie bag featuring a Nick's Riverside $10 gift certificate and beautiful handmade holiday cookies courtesy of the chef.
