The Good Spirits Guide to Where to Eat on New Year’s Eve

With only a handful of days left in 2011, we’ve naturally got New Year’s Eve on our minds. From craft beer open bars to four course dinners, here are some Edible ways to ring in 2012. And of course, be sure to stay tuned to our events calendar for year-round suggestions, or sign up for our email newsletter at right for listings and other news delivered directly to your inbox.

Ellabess, on Elizabeth Street, is one of the restaurants that will be participating in our upcoming Good Spirits cocktail party (speaking of which, you can get a ticket for the winter version of our seasonal cocktail drinks event here). They’ll be offering a four-course New Year’s Eve menu for $85 per person that includes bay scallop crudo with American caviar, smoked apples and dill; and butter-poached lobster with blood orange beurre blanc and frisée. Call the restaurant at (212) 925-5559 to make your reservation.

The Beagle, another Good Spirits participant this year, also has you covered for New Year’s Eve. They will be offering two seatings (the early is $65, the late seating is $85) for a four-course feast that starts with confit quail leg with sauerkraut mayo and wraps up with peanut butter and jelly eclairs. For additional information and to make a reservation, contact [email protected].

In the East Village, Jimmy’s No. 43 invites you to their New Year’s Eve Craft Beer Slam. From 9pm to midnight, you’ll enjoy an open bar (beer and wine) and the chance to ring in the New Year with the friendly community that makes up Jimmy’s No. 43. Get your $45 tickets here.
