New Year's Eve Celebration

nanette Nov 30, 2009 02:41 AM

Hello,

I am once again making a trip home for Christmas and New Year and was hoping to take my husband out for a special meal. Have any of you seen special menus or notices of restaurants offering some sort of New Year's Eve celebration?

My searches thus far have only found one in Bellevue and thought it might be worth asking those of you who are local if you've seen anything. We're not looking for a party, but a nice meal in a fun environment with good food, and a champagne toast at midnight.

Thank you.

    We've gone to Salty's on Alki the past couple years for New Year's Eve. They have a special multi-course dinner that's nothing gourmet but pretty darn good (mmm I'm remembering Lobster Bisque from last year....). It's not a party but I do think they do a champagne toast if you are there at midnight (we are usually home by then). And if the weather is good, you have a great view of the Seattle skyline. I imagine it's probably more difficult to get seating if you plan on being there at midnight to see the fireworks from the Space Needle.

      It's not that difficult to get a table at Salty's for the Space Needle fireworks show--you just have to book far enough in advance. They pass around champagne and dim the lights at midnight so you can see the show pretty well. Like you said, not highly innovative or gourmet, but perfectly good food, and the view is spectacular.

        Rover's is doing a nice sounding NYE dinner.

          I would recommend Crush and Boat Street Cafe

            If you are looking for a nice place and money is not a concern the Georgian has a nice sit down, five course meal with a midnight toast. http://www.fairmont.com/seattle/GuestServices/Restaurants/HolidayDininginTheGeorgian.htm Have not been for New Year's, but their Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners are wonderful.

            Crush also has a seated dinner http://www.chefjasonwilson.com/events.html

            This is a nice list from last year - http://www.seattlepi.com/food/393391_... many of these places have not yet said what they are doing this year, but you could call.
