CLEMENTINA CELEBRATION—Chef José Andrés is bringing back his annual Clementina celebration — a two-week smorgasbord of treats featuring clementines. From Dec. 15 through the 28 (and at all three area Jaleo locations), feast on dishes like clementine and fennel salad, clementine gazpacho and duck confit with clementine sauce. Naturally, cocktails are accounted for: the Clementine 75 is clementine juice, gin, simple syrup and lime juice; the Sunny Side features brandy, clementine juice, lemon juice and sherry. [EaterWire]
