Ring in 2021 at home with these tasty specials & cooking tips

We’ve all become a little more accustomed to cooking at home this year and what better way to say goodbye to 2021 than with one last homemade dinner – maybe not the very last but surely it will be for 2020. Gelson’s – with locations in Pacific Beach, Del Mar and Carlsbad – has everything you need complete with cooking tips for the perfect night in with your significant other or close family. They even have options for prepared dishes too, if you’d rather spend the last day of the year outside of the kitchen.

Delivered fresh daily, Gelson’s live North Atlantic lobsters are a special treat and well deserved for a special occasion such as saying good riddance to 2020. Fresh lobster meat is a delicacy — its tender texture has a sweet, briny, fresh-from-the-sea flavor. If you’re not up for the adventure of cooking and cracking your own lobster, just pick one out from the tank and a Gelson’s chef will steam, crack, and clean them for you free of charge. All you have to do is take your fresh lobster home, warm it up in the oven, melt the lemon-garlic butter — and you’ve got a sumptuous lobster dinner. Live North Atlantic Lobsters will be on sale at Gelson’s for $14.99/lb. December 20 through January 3 (while supplies last).

Opt for a surf n turf style dinner and enjoy a USDA Prime/Choice Certified Angus Beef® Rib Roast or USDA Choice 100% Grass-Fed Beef Rib Roast, available from the Gelson’s butcher or fully prepared from the Gelson’s kitchen. One rib typically feeds 2 people (depending on how hungry you are or if you are planning for leftovers!) Roast in the oven and allow the meat to rest 10-15 minutes before carving. If grilling, be sure to remove excess fat from the beef before cooking to guard against grease fires.
