Back Bay Harry’s has rolled out the red carpet during brunch in honor of pop culture icons from Britney to JT to the Golden Girls—and of course, Queen Bey. The glam goddess and her dapper husband are the stars of the Berkeley Street spot’s New Year’s Eve party. The dress code? Flawless cocktail attire required. 

The Jay-Z and Beyoncé-themed gala will have concert footage projected on the big screen, plus don’t-you-drop-that-alcohol specials, and a four-course prix-fixe fit for music royalty. Chef Jason Santos’ menu sets the stage, with items named in honor of the pop stars’ greatest hits, like “Baby Boy” beef tenderloin carpaccio, “Big Pimpin'” Statler chicken breast, and “Crazy in Love” molten chocolate cake with brûléed Bey-nanas.

There’s no kale, but we think part-time vegan Bey would approve. Check it out below:
