15 SF 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.

Staying in for New Year’s Eve can (and should) be as much fun as going out. Especially if you order from one of these spots on Caviar. Break out the good china (or at least don’t eat straight out of the container your food came in), put a fireworks video on the TV, and order up a celebratory spread. Bonus points for opening champagne and doing the whole thing in your pajamas.

Pacific Catch imageoverride image

Pacific Catch

There are plenty of fresh seafood dishes to choose from at Pacific Catch, whether you’re in the mood for poke and ceviche, or a grilled salmon burger with avocado and citrus aioli. Or, if you’re overly worried about mercury intake (or just eating with a grown adult who thinks they don’t like seafood), the non-seafood options are solid too, including the sriracha steak tacos.

To encourage a fish-filled 2022, we recommend ordering a sushi spread from Elephant. Start with some truffle oil-topped seared yellowtail and spicy tuna rolls, add some nigiri and maybe some shrimp tempura. And considering it’s the last day of the year, you should also add on some toro sashimi.


People line up outside for hours to dine at Daeho Kalbijjim & Beef Soup, but that’s entirely unnecessary. You can get all the good stuff—Korean BBQ, braised short ribs, beef soups, bibimbabs and more—delivered straight to your door without ever having to leave the house.
