A-List NYC Oscar parties

GONY_ChocOscar_0221

Take home your very own chocolate Oscar from Sugar and Plumm.
Whether you’re watching the glam out on the town or at home, here’s how to eat and drink like a stargazer this Sunday.

KTCHN Restaurant
508 W. 42nd St., 212-868-2999
Join executive chef Dale Schnell for an Oscars viewing party based upon the first-ever Academy Awards Ceremony in 1929. Enjoy food and drinks inspired by the menu at the very first Oscars dinner, and fill out a prediction ballot for the chance to win prizes. Catch the red carpet and ceremony on a 120-inch screen beginning at 7 p.m. Reservations required.

Nitehawk Cinema
136 Metropolitan Ave., Brooklyn, 718-384-3980
Williamsburg’s indie movie house and eatery hosts a screening featuring its annual Oscar menu inspired by acclaimed films of the past year. We’d go straight for dessert and order the “Silver Linings Playbook” — Philly-style “kandy kakes” with a Victory Prima Pils.

Tacombi
267 Elizabeth St., 917-727-0179
The taqueria will project the awards on two large screens, one in the front of the house and one in the back, so everyone gets to see. Chef Luis Aguilar will be mixing Passion-Fruit Champagne Cocktails for the ceremony.

W Hotels

Sample a specialty cocktail designed just for Oscar night. We’d try the Honest Abe “Lincoln,” which includes orange bitters, soda and applejack.

Take-out options:
Sugar and Plumm
377 Amsterdam Ave., 212-787-8778
Snap up a hand-crafted chocolate Oscar at this bistro, bakery and chocolatier. They come in three varieties: milk chocolate, gold dark chocolate and dark chocolate, and make a perfect gift or party favor.

Epicerie Boulud
1900 Broadway, 212-595-9606
A specialized Oscar-night catering menu can take the pressure off busy viewing party hosts. Place orders by Saturday evening for hot and cold trays and Hollywood-themed sweets.
