Mon Ami Gabi imageoverride image

Mon Ami Gabi

French in Bethesda

    Perfect for
  • Date Night
  • Dinner with the Parents

Do you wish you were in Paris for NYE? Yeah, join the club. Your living room might not be a moody Parisian bistro overlooking the Eiffel Tower (OK, it’s definitely not that), but a French meal from Mon Ami does wonders for the imagination. Ring in the new year with escargot, steak frites, and something chocolate for dessert.


Lupo Verde

Enjoy reliable Italian dishes when you order takeout from Lupo Verde, like their skillet-baked pizza al tegamino. And if your idea of a great end to the year is a big spread of cheese, Lupo Verde has a nice selection, made in-house or sourced from local farmers.

Greek in Chinatown

Hours: THURSDAY11:30AM to 11:00PM

This spot from José Andrés brings together Turkish, Greek, and Lebanese cuisines. Their menu is focused on mezze and small plates like crispy brussels afelia and some excellent shrimp. We like to go heavy on the vegetables and seafood, but if you’re in the mood, the kebabs are excellent too.

    Perfect for
  • Drinks & A Light Bite

Celebrate the New Year by ordering from this Belgian pub in Georgetown. Start with savory croquettes de fromage and crispy duck leg confit and finish your meal with the Nutella banana Belgian waffles.

This last year had some highs and more than a few lows, but if you want to end things with a guaranteed win, order from Sfoglina. This outstanding Italian spot in Van Ness makes all their pasta by hand, and the menu also has some fish and a few small plate options.

Georgian in Shaw

In addition to their regular menu, this Georgian restaurant in Shaw also offers “Supra at home”—a celebratory feast you order in advance and cook at home. There are vegetarian and meat-focused options, plus plenty of wine, beer, chacha, and other Georgian-themed cocktails to pick up and take-home.

Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar

Cuban in Metro Center

Hours: THURSDAY11:30AM to 11:00PM
    Perfect for
  • Drinks & A Light Bite
  • People Watching

New Year’s wouldn’t be complete without fantastic cocktails and Cuba Libre provides plenty of amazing options for take-home. Pair fan-favorites like the classic caipirinha or mango mojito with traditional Cuban dishes including ropa vieja, churrasco a la cubana, or pollo asado.


Ristorante Piccolo imageoverride image

Ristorante Piccolo

Italian in Georgetown

    Perfect for
  • Date Night
  • Outdoor/Patio Situation

Ordering delivery from Ristorante Piccolo doesn’t come with a live violinist like they have when you eat at the restaurant, but that’s nothing a good playlist can’t fix. The menu goes heavy on fresh hand-rolled pasta like the ravioli verde, gnocchi spaminato, or tortellini carbonara.


Jaleo

Spanish in Penn Quarter

Hours: THURSDAY11:30AM to 11:00PM
    Perfect for
  • Brunch
  • Celebrity Sightings
  • Classic Establishment
  • Date Night
  • Dinner with the Parents
  • Eating At The Bar
  • Impressing Out of Towners
  • Keeping It Kind Of Healthy
  • Private Dining
  • See And Be Seen
  • Small Plates
  • Special Occasions
  • Vegetarians

Jaleo is an excellent option, no matter the size of your party. Try a bit of everything this Spanish restaurant has to offer when you order small plates like the gambas al ajillo, croquetas pollo, and carne asada con piquillos. Or you can opt for one of their larger dishes like the paella Valencia that feeds two to four people.


Via Ghibellina

Via Ghibellina is that neighborhood Italian spot you find yourself always coming back to. The food—pizzas, pastas, and charcuterie—is straightforward but very good. Try the tagliatelle al ragu, filetto al mirtillo, or margherita di bufala pizza, maybe next to one of those fire videos on your TV to up the cozy factor.


Emmy Squared

Ring in the new year with Emmy Squared. They have almost two dozen pizzas on the menu including red pies made with vodka sauce and a white pizza that’s topped with fried chicken and blue cheese. 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.
