  1. I recommend you please delete the multiple other posts. I had a fun New Year's at an italian restaurant in the quarter. I can't remember the name. They have waiters who sing opera, I think. Very close to the river where the fireworks are.

        Definitely sounds like Goivanni.

          I really can't remember the name of the place. I bet it was Giovanni. Is it still there? How shameful that I can't remember the name of such a great place!

    1. Chowhound has a very narrow mission--where to find deliciousness. General travel planning questions, like where to stay or what else to do while visiting a town, are beyond the scope of our boards. Please keep your replies focused on helping the poster find great chow, as such replies will be removed.

      1. most of the restaurants will have pre-set menus that are $100 pp or more, plus plus. for your best viewing of the fireworks on the riverfront, you might consider having dinner at the Westin Canal Place and watch from there. another option would be the Rib Room, and ask if they are allowing firework's viewing from their rooftop pool deck.
        be sure you book well in advance. most of the places will advertise their New Year's Eve menus sometime after Thanksgiving.
        I remember watching the fireworks from the Westin after Katrina and seeing all the neighborhoods still in darkness, except for their fireworks displaying their will of returning home.
