In previous installments of this series I covered special New Year’s menus and events taking place in the Back Bay and the South End. Today I want to talk about what’s happening on Beacon Hill, the North End and parts of the city not previously mentioned.
If you’re in the mood for French cuisine, then you should check out The Beacon Hill Bistro where they will be having a special 4 course prix-fixe menu ($72/person) with an optional supplemental course for two between the appetizer and the entree ($20). French not your thing? Just across the common you can enjoy Lobster Newburg or Beef Wellington at Parker’s Restaurant in the Omni Parker House Hotel. There will be a 4 course prix-fixe dinner that includes a glass of champagne and chocolate truffles ($72/person). If its a combination of italian and french food you’re after then check out No.9 Park where they will offer a 6 course chef’s tasting menu, a champagne toast and entertainment provided by Ron Della Chiesa ($165/person).
Also on Beacon Hill, Clink at the Liberty Hotel will be offering a 5 course prix-fixe menu ($125/person) with optional supplements and a champagne toast. Diners also receive access to the hotel’s lobby party which will include a DJ, midnight balloon drop and party favors. You can also ring in the new year at 75 Chestnut where there will be fun prizes, music and dancing, fun hats, noises makers and more.
While most restaurants in the North End are serving their regular menus, 2 restaurants will be serving up Italian style specials. Terramia Ristorante is offering a 5 course prix-fixe menu ($75/person) from 4PM – 11:30 PM. A 4 course prix-fixe menu is being offered by Tresca.
elsewhere in Boston
At One Seaport Lane, Aura is offering a 4 course Prix-Fixe menu that starts off with potato leek soup and ends with dark chocolate cream; New York Cheesecake; Vanilla Creme Brulee for dessert. The cost ($95/person, $125/person with wine pairings) includes a champagne toast at midnight and live music. Diners will also be welcomed into Tamo after their meal for hors d’oeuvres.
Sel de la Terre on Long Wharf is offering 2 multi-course prix-fixed menus ($85/person, with wine pairings $120/person) with optional supplements. Uniquely, one of their menus will be totally vegetarian.
So that complete’s my round up of places to eat, drink and be merry on New Year’s Eve. Happy New Year everyone.
