New Years Eve

Would love a few ideas for NYE dinner on the Westside for a small group.
Something festive with good food but doesn't need to be a special, set NYE dinner.

  1. If you don't mind going on the later side (9 to 9:30) then Tar & Roses would be a good choice.

      1. opentable.com has a large list including Tavern and Water Grill.

        1. Decided on The London. The menu isn't crazy expensive and it is festive.

            According to the website the London is $145 per person for the 8:30-midnight seating. Yikes.

                Yes I've never been overly impressed by the food at the London, particularly given the price point. Last time I was there was for a private dinner about a year ago that was pretty much a disaster.

                    Probably a wise choice. Did you find a back up plan?

                      Yes - Ivy at the Shore. Not the most popular on this board but I always enjoy both The Ivy and Ivy at the Shore.
                      I typically avoid restaurants on NYE so it should be interesting.
                      Happy 2014 everyone!

                        Great minds think alike:) Ivy at the Shore is also our destination tonight. Happy New Year

                          I'm very fond of Ivy at the Shore as well. Crab cake app + grilled vegetable salad = one of my all-time favorite meals. Are they doing a special menu for NYE?
