13 Chicago 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.

New Year’s Eve should be a celebration, but you try telling that to Chicago weather in December. Skip the bundling up and bring the reason you go out—great food—home. Dig out a disco ball and make your own ball drop, and ring in the new year by ordering from some of our favorite spots on Caviar.

Urban Belly

Dumplings travel well, so Urban Belly is a good choice for a New Years Eve meal. But that’s not all you’ll find on the menu at this spot in the West Loop—they’ve also got rice bowls, togarashi fries and all kinds of noodles. And for New Year’s Eve, you can enjoy their katsu udon soup on Caviar.

We especially like the thigh sandwich, topped with slaw, American cheese, hot sauce, aioli, and pickles. Also important: you can order their infamous negroni slushies for delivery. Seeing as it’s the end of December, they’ll probably stay frozen on their way to you, too.

When you’re met with the uncertainties of a new year, sometimes panicking feels like the only answer. But we’re here to tell you that ordering pizza is also an acceptable way to deal. The New Haven-style pies at Piece are great, with soft chewy crusts, lots of red sauce, and parm instead of mozzarella. Plus, they’re also a brewery, so you can order a few of their in-house options.

If you’re spending NYE cuddled up by the fireplace, consider ordering some takeout that has done the same. Etta’s menu has hearth-roasted dishes like fresh baked focaccia, roasted sweet potato with nduja and chimichurri, whole branzino and a grilled porterhouse that will feed a crowd.

Basically, if you’re hosting but can’t fathom actually cooking, this is where you should be ordering from.

Owned by former E! Reality stars, RPM Italian has some of the best Italian food in the city. Their bucatini pomodoro and the cavatelli are two of our all-time favorite pastas, and a much better idea than trying to make your own for the “special” occasion.

Big Jones imageoverride image

Big Jones

American in Andersonville

$$$$

    Perfect for
  • Brunch
  • Casual Weeknight Dinner
  • Date Night
  • Dinner with the Parents
  • Drinking Good Cocktails
  • First/Early in the Game Dates

Eating black eyed peas and greens on the first day of the year is said to make for a prosperous 12 months. Get a jump on that and order from Big Jones for New Years Eve. This Southern spot also serves classics like gumbo ya-ya, fried chicken, etouffee, and po’boys.


Pleasant House Pub

Do you wish you were in London for NYE? Yeah, join the club. Your living room might not be a cozy pub overlooking the Thames, but ordering from Pleasant House Pub does wonders for the imagination. Ring in the new year with fish and chips, bangers and mash, savory pies, sticky toffee pudding, and a growler (or two) of beer to wash it all down.


Healthy Substance

The food from this vegan Mexican spot in Garfield Ridge is fantastic. Everything from the shredded cashew cheese to the spicy al pastor, chorizo, and steak is made in house and none of it feels overprocessed.


Tempesta Market imageoverride image

Tempesta Market
8.2

Sandwiches in West Town

    Perfect for
  • Casual Weeknight Dinner
  • Delivery
  • Dining Solo
  • Literally Everyone
  • Lunch
  • Outdoor/Patio Situation
  • Quick Eats
  • Serious Take-Out Operation
  • Walk-Ins

Along with having some of Chicago’s best sandwiches (the Beet Street, with beets, apples, and almond butter, is one of the best in the city), Tempesta Market is also a deli and specialty store. This means you can get lots of meat, cheese, and accompaniments to assemble a professional-level charcuterie board, without venturing out into the cold.


Aba
7.8

Mediterranean in West Loop

    Perfect for
  • Big Groups
  • Birthdays
  • Business Meals
  • Date Night
  • Gluten-Free Options
  • Outdoor/Patio Situation
  • See And Be Seen
  • Small Plates
  • Vegans
  • Vegetarians

Aba is, as they say, a scene, even by West Loop standards. But their Mediterranean food is fantastic, making this an ideal place to order from if your idea of a scene is putting on sweats for dinner instead of pajama pants. Skip the crowds and have a mezze spread on your coffee table instead.


D Cuisine
7.6

Chinese in Lincoln Park

    Perfect for
  • Breakfast
  • Brunch
  • Casual Weeknight Dinner
  • First/Early in the Game Dates
  • Lunch
  • Serious Take-Out Operation
  • Small Plates

In our opinion, there are few things better than covering a table with dumplings, except maybe eating all those dumplings. D Cuisine has over 30 different types, so you’re going to need a very large dining table (and room in the fridge for all those next-day leftovers).
