15 Manhattan 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 might not be exactly what you were planning a few weeks ago, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still celebrate. Get out some candles and your fanciest plates and bring the party in with some excellent food by ordering from some of our favorite spots on Caviar. And if you’re in Brooklyn, check out these 14 spots on Caviar.

Kiki’s imageoverride image

Kiki's
8.5

Greek in Lower East Side

Hours: SATURDAY12:00PM to 12:00AM
    Perfect for
  • Birthdays
  • Casual Weeknight Dinner
  • People Watching
  • Walk-Ins

Getting a table at Kiki’s on a regular weeknight is already a struggle, so throw in New Year’s Eve and your chances of getting in before 2022 are slim. So order in from this Greek spot instead. The uncomplicated, enjoyable dishes range from lighter options, like smoked eggplant dip or grilled octopus, to heavier ones like melted cheese wrapped in phyllo dough and topped with honey. No matter what else you have on your table, make sure to get the lamb chops.

Dumplings travel well, and the ones from Nom Wah are no exception. Go in on cozy couchside soup dumplings, rice rolls, fried sesame balls, and shrimp siu mai.


Cafe Mogador

Moroccan in East Village

Hours: SATURDAY9:00AM to 2:00AM
    Perfect for
  • Brunch
  • Date Night
  • Gluten-Free Options
  • Outdoor/Patio Situation

Cafe Mogador opened in the East Village in 1983 serving Moroccan staples. Rely on their comforting food—like mezze dips, tabouli salads, and lamb kefta skewers—to put together a spread for your NYE hang.


Via Carota imageoverride image

Via Carota
8.7

Pasta in West Village

Hours: SATURDAY6:00PM to 12:00AM
    Perfect for
  • Date Night
  • Private Dining
  • Small Plates
  • Walk-Ins

Deciding whether or not to go to Via Carota usually requires some cost-benefit analysis. On the one hand, waits tend to be as long as a transatlantic flight on a Concorde, but on the other hand, all of the food—from ’nduja-stuffed arancini and various salads, to arguably the best cacio e pepe in the city—is absolutely phenomenal. But they also offer delivery, so now the analysis is simpler: you should order from here for New Year’s Eve.


L’Artusi review image

Pasta in West Village

Hours: SATURDAY5:30PM to 12:00AM

  • Date Night
  • Dinner with the Parents
  • Eating At The Bar
  • Literally Everyone
  • Private Dining

This last year had some highs and more than a few lows, but if you want to end things with a win, order from L’Artusi. This Italian spot in the West Village serves excellent Italian food and objectively perfect pasta, plus a burger they launched last year that’s one of the best in the city. For New Year’s Eve, check out their special pre-fixe dinners with cacio e pepe, tagliatelle, branzino, and choice of olive oil or chocolate cake.


Blue Ribbon Sushi imageoverride image

    Perfect for
  • Celebrity Sightings
  • Corporate Cards
  • Impressing Out of Towners
  • Late Night Eats
  • People Watching
  • Walk-Ins

You’re in the mood for sushi, but your date is insisting on fried chicken. It’s New Year’s Eve, so no one should have to compromise—order from Blue Ribbon’s Midtown location. Order a mix of things from the menu, or try their NYE deluxe sashimi and sushi platter and oxtail bone marrow fried rice.


Chote Nawab

Hours: SATURDAY12:00PM to 12:00AM

All of the vegetable curries and kebabs here taste like they came straight from the Garden of Eden, before Adam and Eve ruined everything over a piece of fruit. Order a few, plus the Hyderabadi-style biryani with peanut curry, and be sure to get some extra naan too because you can never have too much naan.


Barn Joo imageoverride image

Barn Joo

You can’t order the BBQ from this Korean spot on Union Square West for delivery, but that’s fine because we prefer the rest of the menu here anyway. Try a few of the shared plates, plus bibimbap.


2nd Ave Deli imageoverride image

2nd Ave Deli

Sandwiches in Kips Bay

$$$$

Get Directions  |   212-689-9000  |  Website

Hours: SATURDAY6:00AM to 11:00PM
    Perfect for
  • Dining Solo
  • Eating At The Bar
  • Kids
  • Late Night Eats
  • Quick Eats
  • Serious Take-Out Operation

At this classic midtown deli, you’re going to want a massive pastrami sandwich on challah, and a bowl of matzo ball soup with a softball-sized sphere of fall-apart matzo sitting in the middle. In the event that you want to save some room for chocolate rugelach, order the half-sandwich combo. And in the event that you want to do the opposite of save room, get a triple-decker sandwich, like the one that comes with turkey, brisket, chicken fat, and a whole lot of delicious house Russian dressing.


Fish Cheeks imageoverride image

Fish Cheeks
8.3

Thai in NOHO

    Perfect for
  • Dinner with the Parents
  • First/Early in the Game Dates
  • Impressing Out of Towners

Our favorite dish at this NoHo Thai spot is the creamy, slightly spicy coconut crab curry, but the zabb wings and coconut fried rice are also great choices. In case you need some vegetables, get the vegan green curry.


Dinosaur Bar-B-Que

BBQ in Harlem

Hours: SATURDAY11:30AM to 12:00AM
    Perfect for
  • Big Groups
  • Birthdays
  • Kids
  • Outdoor/Patio Situation
  • Sports!

If you’re catering for a crowd, or just want to make sure you have enough food to get you through the weekend, get one of the combos or family platters from Dinosaur in Harlem. Regardless of how much BBQ you plan to eat, make sure to get the crunchy, cheesy fried green tomatoes.


Scarr’s Pizza imageoverride image

Scarr's Pizza
8.2

Pizza in Lower East Side

Hours: SATURDAY12:00PM to 12:00AM
    Perfect for
  • Casual Weeknight Dinner
  • Quick Eats

Lots of people head to Scarr’s for the scene, but we like it here because the pizza is undeniably excellent. Guarantee everyone at your New Year’s party leaves happy by ordering a stack of pies and scattering them on every surface in your apartment. The vegan options are fantastic, but you also shouldn’t skip the pepperoni.


Quality Eats

American in West Village

Hours: SATURDAY5:30PM to 2:00AM
    Perfect for
  • Birthdays
  • Brunch
  • Dinner with the Parents
  • Literally Everyone

Your apartment might not look or feel like a steakhouse, but neither does Quality Eats. So skip the meat thermometer and smoking out your kitchen, and order your beef-heavy New Year’s dinner from here instead.


Tonchin

Japanese in Midtown

    Perfect for
  • Casual Weeknight Dinner
  • Dining Solo
  • Eating At The Bar

Tonchin is the NYC location of a Japanese ramen chain that specializes in tonkotsu ramen. But they also have a nice mix of options including cucumber salad, various buns, spicy chicken wings, and vegan ramen.


Momoya

Japanese in Chelsea

$$$$

Get Directions  |   212-989-4466  |  Website

Hours: SATURDAY5:30PM to 11:00PM
    Perfect for
  • Casual Weeknight Dinner
  • Dinner with the Parents
  • Literally Everyone
  • Serious Take-Out Operation

Overloading your coffee table with nigiri and spicy tuna on crispy rice instead of Solo cups for guests you didn’t want to invite is always a good New Year’s Eve plan. Momoya in Chelsea is a reliable spot for sushi plus Japanese small plates like nasu shigiyaki and goma-ae spinach with sesame sauce.
