Where to eat NYE in suburbia north?

Any suggestions for a food-focused NYE? I'm not sure if we would prefer prix fixe or ala carte...I know we want to avoid the city!

    1. Last year we went to Joseph's Trattoria in Haverhill and had a great meal,,,made reservations again for this year.

      NYE = New Years Eve

        I love Joseph's...but we go there pretty often. We are looking at L'Andana in Burlington or Gaven's in Middleton.

          I'want to check out L'Andana too....I haven't been to Gavin's in a while, but that would be a good option too for NYE.

            Hopefully it's not too late, but Gaven's can be a tough reservation at times.
            An excellent alternative Steakhouse would be Pellana further east on RT114 in Peabody.
            I work in Middleton and have been to both on numerous occasions with clients. I would have no reservations (sorry) going to either one of them.


            P.S. I also love Joseph's Trattoria, BTW!
