15 Philly 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.

From applying eyeliner, picking out our best photo-ready outfit, or even helping our friends snag a parking spot before the festivities begin, New Year’s Eve can get a little overwhelming. At least Caviar has us covered when we’re hosting at home or looking for something to eat before heading out. Even better, many of the spots on the app have deals just for the holiday. Here are 15 places we’ll be ordering from while deciding if an outfit makes us look silly and in between champagne runs.

Han Dynasty

Chinese in University City

    Perfect for
  • Casual Weeknight Dinner
  • Delivery
  • Dining Solo
  • Eating At The Bar
  • Lunch
  • Walk-Ins

Here are two things you can always count on: never-ending Center City construction and Han Dynasty being open on the holidays. We’d order their dan dan noodles or chicken fried dumplings any day of the week, but there’s something extra special about going big here to ring in the new year.


DK Sushi

Japanese in University City

    Perfect for
  • Dining Solo
  • Lunch
  • Quick Eats

Whether your plan is to head out for a big night, or to take a “nap” and discover you’ve slept your way into 2022, the night can be a total success with a toro scallion, spicy scallop, and shrimp tempura roll from Walnut Street’s DK Sushi. And since PPA took away free holiday parking, getting a full raw fish spread delivered offers us a way better option than throwing on our hazards just to grab a fresh order and hoping we don’t get a ticket.


Tiffin Indian Cuisine

We believe the best NYE party starters include confetti, beads, noisemakers, and samosas. Thankfully Tiffin Indian Cuisine has us covered with those spicy potato pastries—and depending on how you use basmati rice, maybe the confetti—at any of their four locations in the city. From traditional curry pots like their chicken tikka masala to warm roti and naan, we can’t think of a better last meal to say goodbye to the year.


Barbuzzo Mediterranean Kitchen & Bar imageoverride image

Barbuzzo Mediterranean Kitchen & Bar
8.0

Bar Food in Center City

    Perfect for
  • Literally Everyone
  • Lunch
  • Pre-Theater Eats
  • Small Plates

Easy is exactly what we need when most of our energy will be spent making playlists and finding the best rooftop to dance the night away. So if you’re looking for a NYE no-brainer, order from this Mediterranean bar and kitchen Barbuzzo. Whether you’re in the mood for a wood-fired pizza, stuffed meatballs, or want to keep it light with a good beet salad, this Midtown Village spot has all of that and more.


Little Nonna's

Italian in Center City

    Perfect for
  • Date Night
  • Dinner with the Parents
  • Drinks & A Light Bite
  • First/Early in the Game Dates
  • Outdoor/Patio Situation

You’re probably getting home late, which means you should be thinking about tomorrow’s breakfast. Ordering from Little Nonna’s will cover both your bases—their large portions will get you through NYE night and into the next year. The Center City Italian spot can make your night with pan seared gnocchi, rigatoni alla vodka, or a short rib filled lumache.


Pizzeria Vetri imageoverride image

Pizzeria Vetri

Pizza in Logan Square

    Perfect for
  • Big Groups
  • Casual Weeknight Dinner
  • Dining Solo
  • Lunch
  • Outdoor/Patio Situation

Sometimes on NYE, a dinner for two is one call or “wyd” text away from being a meal for six. While pizza might not solve all the problems that come with last-minute holiday guests, it’s one of the most shareable meals you can order. Both the Rittenhouse and Callowhill locations will be open, so the only hard part in the order process will be deciding between a classic margherita, fennel sausage, or truffle pear pie.


Terrain Garden Cafe

On a day where we’re supposed to stay up all night until Ryan Seacrest or Al Roker tells us to go to bed, a batch of quinoa fritters, Atlantic salmon, or a harvest bowl from Terrain Garden Cafe may be just what we need to keep our energy going. We’d totally make the long drive from Center City to the Glen Mills or Devon locations just to grab anything off of their menu. But if you’re lucky enough to live nearby, it’s good to know that their full menu can be ordered pretty easily.


Buddakan imageoverride image

Buddakan

Japanese in Old City

    Perfect for
  • Big Groups
  • Special Occasions

This Center City Asian fusion spot has dim sum options like chicken and ginger dumplings and lobster egg rolls, entrees like wasabi crusted filet and black pepper beef, and two- and four-person dinner packages on the menu.


Nom Wah Philadelphia imageoverride image

Nom Wah Philadelphia
7.7

Chinese in Chinatown

    Perfect for
  • Big Groups
  • Casual Weeknight Dinner
  • Cheap Eats
  • Dining Solo
  • Lunch
  • Walk-Ins

Chinatown’s Nom Wah Philadelphia has several options that make us feel more celebratory than a champagne toast at midnight. The lengthy dim sum menu is full of can’t miss spicy wontons, shrimp and snow pea leaf dumplings, pork buns, shrimp rolls, and many specials like salt and pepper shrimp, steamed red bean buns, and miso chicken.


Parc Brasserie imageoverride image

Parc Brasserie

French in Rittenhouse

    Perfect for
  • Breakfast
  • Brunch
  • Classic Establishment
  • Date Night
  • Day Drinking
  • Dining Solo
  • Lunch
  • Outdoor/Patio Situation
  • People Watching
  • See And Be Seen

By the time we get to the end of the year, it’s hard enough to keep track of what day it is. Why not just leave the cooking to Parc? The Rittenhouse Square French bistro has menu items like lobster frites, Mediterranean sea bass, ricotta ravioli, and a steak tartare that will make our NYE night fancy without dealing with a cover charge and painful shoes.


Frankford Hall imageoverride image

Frankford Hall
7.5

Burgers in Fishtown

    Perfect for
  • Big Groups
  • Birthdays
  • Day Drinking
  • Literally Everyone
  • Outdoor/Patio Situation
  • People Watching
  • Pre-Theater Eats
  • See And Be Seen
  • Special Occasions

One of the city’s best and largest beer halls has a fun menu to close out the year. We’re not just talking about the make-your-own s’mores kits and massive Bavarian pretzels. Here you can get some German staples like weisswurst, bratwurst, and currywurst sausages, schnitzel sandwiches, and potato pancakes.


The Continental Mid-Town imageoverride image

The Continental Mid-Town
7.0

American in Center City

    Perfect for
  • Birthdays
  • Drinking Good Cocktails
  • Drinks & A Light Bite
  • Happy Hour
  • Outdoor/Patio Situation

The last thing we want after spending the day at work, or deciding which tier friend groups get a “Happy New Year” text, is figuring out the food for the night. Center City’s Continental Mid-Town is known for its martins and tapas-style menu. While we may not be able to order one of their signature cocktails, they do have other things we can sip—like the broth from their French onion soup dumplings.


The Wonton Project imageoverride image

The Wonton Project

The Wonton Project’s wontons are so good that we might be so busy dipping them into their house-made chili soy sauce that we miss the countdown completely. Ordering our favorites like their pork and shrimp, fried vegetables, and chilled tofu wontons from either of their two locations (Center City and University City) might be one of the best ways to end the year.


Emmy Squared imageoverride image

Emmy Squared

American in Queen Village

    Perfect for
  • Big Groups
  • Birthdays
  • Casual Weeknight Dinner
  • Drinking Good Cocktails
  • Kids
  • Literally Everyone

Ring in the new year with Queen Village’s Emmy Squared. They have almost two dozen pizzas on the menu including red pies made with vodka sauce and a white pizza that’s full of Nashville hot chicken and topped with Alabama white sauce. And since no dinner party, including a NYE one, wouldn’t be complete without a dessert, go for their family-style banana and chocolate pudding.


Amada imageoverride image

Amada
7.8

Spanish in Old City

    Perfect for
  • Classic Establishment
  • Corporate Cards
  • Date Night
  • Dinner with the Parents
  • Small Plates
  • Special Occasions

If we can’t make it to this spot near the Delaware River fireworks on NYE, we can still order something from its Spanish-inspired menu. With tapas like croquetas, almost a dozen charcuterie options, and entrees that include a roasted half chicken sautéed in brown butter, their options might even be more exciting than the light show over the Ben Franklin Bridge anyway.
