Let’s bid 2021 farewell and enter a new, chaotic year. 2022 is almost here and while we have no idea what this next year will entail, we can suggest some New Year’s Eve three and even four-course meals to enjoy as we ring in the new year. From vinyl music alongside wine and food, delicious Italian offerings, and Mexican-style Bottomless Brunch, there’s a little something for everyone to ensure that this New Year’s Eve will be one to remember, and we’ll update any changes.
1. Sunday Vinyl
Check out Sunday Vinyl on New Year’s Eve for a special night of Fela Kuti and Afrobeat of the Diaspora accompanying a carefully selected three-course menu and champagne flight. (Hint: menu items are also available a la carte if you don’t want to pay for the full menu). The three-course meal costs $70 per person with dishes like scallop ceviche with winter citrus and buttermilk fried chicken with matsutake gravy (which is a highly sought after Japanese mushroom). You can make reservations here.
Restaurant Olivia is a pasta-focused Italian restaurant in Wash Park offering a five-course New Year’s Eve meal. The curated five-course menu costs $150 per person, between 1-6 guests, and requires a $25 deposit from each person attending. Guests will be able to choose between two dishes in each course, with one dish being a fan favorite from this year and the other being a preview of what’s to come in 2022. Some dishes include the French onion cappelletti with crispy Parmesan (pictured above) and black truffle gnocchi with snow crab. You can make reservations here.
The Greenwich is a new restaurant in the RiNo neighborhood serving up New American style cuisine, and this year, to celebrate their opening, are hosting a superb sounding New Year’s Eve meal. Theirs will be a four-course spread where they’re offering bread, pizza, a main (chicken, swordfish, and steak), plus a delicious choice between cheesecake or pistachio olive oil cake. The menu costs $70 per person with an additional $35 charge for wine pairings. Reservations can be made here.
If you’re more into a casual eatery, Wynkoop has got you covered with a fantastic New Year’s Eve menu. The executive chef Chris Collins has created a 3-course meal at $55 per person. The menu will feature some of Wynkoop’s favorite items like their Short Rib Arancini, Steak Au Poivre, and Bananas Foster. For $30 additional, guests can pair the menu with Wynkoop’s Craft Beers (which we highly recommend doing). Upstairs, there will be the Dueling Piano’s Road Show for $75 which includes live dueling pianos, a swing jazz trio, photo booth, and silent disco. For people who want to enjoy both the dinner and show, it’ll cost $175 per person and will include tickets to the Dueling Piano’s Road Show, the three-course meal, and a champagne toast. Make your reservation here.
Tamayo has two special offerings for New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day this year. On NYE, they’ve got a three-course meal for $70 per person with offerings like their Tamal Oaxaqueño, rib eye, lobster and shrimp or hazelnut mouses cake for a sweet dessert option. On January 1st, they’re doing a bottomless brunch with mimosas, bloody marys, margaritas, and bloody marias flowing alongside Huevos Rancheros, carnitas tacos, Tres Leches Cake and more. The cost of the brunch is $42 with a 2-hour limit per table. Reservations can be made here.
