Koi's red snapper.

Koi's red snapper.

Happy New Year, Chinese-style. The lunar new year, also celebrated by other Asians, including Vietnamese and Koreans, comes on Monday, heralding the Year of the Snake. A variety of symbolic foods feature during the celebrations, including a whole fish with head and tail intact, which stands for the hope of abundance in the coming year.

This ponzu whole red snapper, $24.99, is part of the special “good luck” New Year menu being served today through Monday at Koi in Evanston. The restaurant will also welcome traditional lion dancers at 7 p.m. this evening.
