New Years Eve
Why is it that even the best restaurants seem to fall apart on New Year's Eve? Has anyone had good, eating out on New Year's suggestions? We usually eat in on New Years and celebrate with friends but we are fairly new to NYC and our apartment is so tiny that we can't invite our friends over for the evening.
We had a good NYE dining experience a couple of years ago at Savoy in Soho. However we were out of there by 9:30-ish.
Are you looking to ring in the New Year at a restaurant or just have a nice dinner out and then move on to someplace else?
It would be nice to be out to ring in the years . . . but I think it's obnoxious that restaurants charge $95 for a sitting at 5:00 pm and $175 for the same food plus maybe 1 course and a glass of champagne.
We currently have reservations at Il Trulli, but I don't know if I should keep them. Any thoughts?
babbo and del posto are offering their a la carte menus in addition to special tasting menus. at this point it's probably just very early reservations left at babbo, if any, and i'm sure del posto is booking up fast too.
i also considered perry st and think they are offering their regular a la carte menu as well.
