14 Boston Restaurants To Order From On Caviar For New Year’s Eve

Our New Years’ resolution? Ordering one of these NYE meals to eat at home and finishing the book we started in January.

This New Year’s Eve, we’ve teamed up with Caviar to help you find the perfect meal for your big night in. Whether you’re getting dressed up and hosting at home or plan to be asleep before the ball even drops, we’ve got you covered with these 14 excellent options for a celebratory meal.

Orinoco Kitchen

Latin in Cambridge

    Perfect for
  • Casual Weeknight Dinner
  • Outdoor/Patio Situation

Inspired by Venezuelan roadside “taguaritas,” Orinoco stands out as one of the city’s best places for Latin American flavors. The antojitos section of the menu is especially great if you’re having people over this NYE, with finger food options like bacon-wrapped dates, and marauchitos of queso blanco wrapped in crispy dough and served with chipotle ketchup.


Picco

Pizza in South End

    Perfect for
  • Casual Weeknight Dinner
  • First/Early in the Game Dates
  • Serious Take-Out Operation

A restaurant that specializes in pizza and ice cream—what’s not to love? A brick oven char is the secret to this South End favorite’s prodigious pies, which range from the classic (like pepperoni, or sausage and ricotta), to the not-so-common (the Alsatian, with sauteed onions, shallots, crème fraiche, bacon and gruyere). Throw a couple of hand-packed ice cream pints onto your order and you’ve got yourself a bona fide pizza party.


Myers + Chang imageoverride image

Myers + Chang

Hours: SATURDAY11:30AM to 11:00PM

You’re looking to get food delivered because you don’t want to cook, but in select cases, some assembly is worth it. Exhibit A: Mama Chang’s pork + chive dumplings from Myers + Chang. The kit comes with all the prepared ingredients and instructions to make around 40 dumplings. Order some of the wok-charred noodles to eat while you get them ready.


Dumpling House

You’ll find a few regional varieties of Chinese cuisine on the menu here, but we like to focus on the flavorful dumplings. Soup dumplings, pork and leek dumplings, pork and cabbage dumplings, vegetarian dumplings, seafood dumplings—there are so many options here, you’ll certainly have enough to carry you over to your first lunch of 2022.


Shojo

Chinese in Chinatown

    Perfect for
  • Drinking Good Cocktails
  • First/Early in the Game Dates
  • Happy Hour
  • Late Night Eats

Asian street foods with a twist are the name of the game at this Chinatown mainstay. A couple orders of the shojo pig bao, a mound of duck fat fries with sriracha aioli, and some of their signature Far East Baja-Style Fish Tacos and you’re in business.


Coppa imageoverride image

Coppa

Pizza in South End

    Perfect for
  • Casual Weeknight Dinner
  • Date Night
  • Day Drinking
  • Delivery
  • Dogs
  • Lunch
  • Outdoor/Patio Situation

This last year had some highs and more than few lows, but if you want to end things with a guaranteed win, order from Coppa. The arancini are legendary, the blue fin crudo with blood orange and pomegranate is inspired, and the cacio e pepe bucatini is probably the best of its kind in Boston.


Mida imageoverride image

Mida

Italian in Roxbury

    Perfect for
  • Casual Weeknight Dinner
  • Date Night
  • Drinking Good Cocktails
  • Drinking Good Wine
  • Eating At The Bar
  • First/Early in the Game Dates

Pasta lovers, set your sights on Mida, where house made pasta is the name of the game. There are classics like bucatini alla amatriciana and cacio e pepe gnocchi, as well as more inspired dishes like lobster carbonara.


Bar Lyon imageoverride image

Bar Lyon

French in South End

    Perfect for
  • Date Night
  • Dinner with the Parents
  • Drinking Good Wine
  • Special Occasions

Opt for a little elegance this NYE with takeout from this buzzy French restaurant. Appetizers like the foie gras parfait or the heirloom squash and comte cheese galette make for great cocktail accompaniments early in the night, and the classic steak frites (or better yet, duck frites) pairs beautifully with the midnight ball drop.


Cafe Sushi imageoverride image

Cafe Sushi

Japanese in Cambridge

    Perfect for
  • Casual Weeknight Dinner
  • Impressing Out of Towners
  • Unique Dining Experience

Anyone who knows good sushi keeps this Harvard Square institution in regular rotation. You can certainly order a la carte, but there’s no need to overcomplicate things—trust the chef’s selection and go with the any of the nigiri or sashimi platter options.


Saloniki Greek

It’s hard to go wrong with the authentic Greek menu here, but two things stand out in particular: the bread that’s made-to-order for each and every pita, and the whole-roasted chickens to go that come with all the fixings, including tzatziki, charred lemon, mizithra cheese, a Greek salad, and Saloniki’s signature crispy smashed potatoes.


Celeste imageoverride image

Celeste

Peruvian in Somerville

    Perfect for
  • Date Night
  • Drinking Good Cocktails
  • Literally Everyone

Skip the Solo cups and guests you didn’t really want to invite and have a more casual night at home with dinner from Celeste.The scallop crudo, octopus with black olive mayonnaise, and black mint stew with squash, fava beans and potato might just be the explosion of flavors you need to kick off 2022.


Mamaleh's

Deli in Cambridge

    Perfect for
  • Breakfast
  • Dining Solo
  • Lunch

You can check off your list for both dinner and breakfast by ordering from this modern Jewish delicatessen. For your NYE feast, grab a couple of Reubens and orders of latkes with sour cream and apple sauce. For your NYE morning after, the pastrami, egg and cheese sandwich smothered in Russian dressing hits the spot.


Eventide imageoverride image

Eventide

Seafood in Fenway

    Perfect for
  • Gluten-Free Options
  • Lunch
  • Quick Eats

Modern takes on New England seafood are what makes the Boston location of this Maine favorite stand out. Of course, Eventide’s famous brown butter lobster rolls take center stage (as they should) but don’t sleep on the fried chicken katsu sandwich, which comes with a healthy shmear of maple Chinese mustard, or the crispy fish sandwich with house made tartar sauce.


Pagu imageoverride image

Pagu

Japanese in Cambridge

    Perfect for
  • Big Groups
  • Birthdays
  • Drinking Good Cocktails
  • Drinks & A Light Bite
  • First/Early in the Game Dates
  • Literally Everyone
  • Lunch
  • Small Plates
  • Unique Dining Experience
  • Vegetarians

The combination of flavors is simply sublime. Check out the mushrooms with sunflower seed romesco, roasted beets with yuzu and whipped labneh, spicy hand-pulled biang-biang noodles, and Hamachi sashimi with tamari and thai chili from this Japanese-Spanish restaurant in Central Square. For larger appetites, the suckling pig for 2, 4 or 6 people is a great NYE crowd pleaser, too.
