New Years Eve Dinner in London
Hi - I'm a 24 year old new yorker who is heading across the pond to LDN for a week and a half after Christmas. I am visiting my best friend there - also 24 - and we'd like to treat ourselves to an excellent New Year's Eve dinner at a memorable restaurant. Although we obviously don't want to completely break the bank, we're willing to spend a bit for a truly great dinner.
Suggestions for a NYE dinner locale? Preferences are:
- somewhere that has a fun vibe without being overly hipster and/or annoying...nothing that screams "scene"
- somewhere with a beautiful space but where the food doesn't take a backseat
- somewhere where dinner will not run more than $150 per person
Thoughts? Thank ya.
Many places will be open for New Year's Eve but check in advance around the offer - most places will be charging a huge premium and would usually be a set menu.
Before we start on recommendations, where are you staying? I would suggest dining somewhere within walking distance or near a tube if possible as getting cabs is near impossible and they too charge a premium. Is your budget to include wine?
I just had an email through from Bounday in Shoreditch who are doing a NYE dinner: this could suit your requirements? The food is fantastic, very French and the space is lovely - with a cool bar. For £90 they have a champagne, oyster and caviar reception, four courses and entertainment or £55 for three courses early NYE supper. Sounds like a pretty good deal, and it's a great place.
