New Year’s Eve Celebration

Geoff Johnson

Copper Fish on Broadway, West Cape May, NJ

* Please note special time.

Break out the Champagne and the poodle skirts, because tonight you're going to party like it's 1959. Chef Geoff Johnson, who is known for his eclectic menu at Copper Fish on Broadway in historic Cape May, will be re-creating a few dishes from the vast 1959 winter menu from the Four Seasons that James Beard himself helped conceive.
