I don’t know if you heard it, but 2020 was a real job. While a lot of delightful things have happened this year, from take-away cocktails to a host of fantastic restaurant openings to a new wave of enormous pop-ups, I think that speaking for everyone, if I say goodbye 2020 we won’t miss you .
So how do you celebrate the end of a terrible year when you can’t responsibly (or legally) gather together with someone outside your household, and when a government-mandated curfew means we should all be in our own homes when the ball falls ? This is the one year no one will accuse you of going to bed before midnight. While this guide has some options for New Years Eve that seem too good, not to mention, we’re really excited about New Years Day 2021 – a day full of fresh starts, new beginnings, and a special take away meal for you and your household to enjoy together.
New Year’s Eve
Danel House Only opened in February, closed at the beginning of the shelter and reopened in July, one can only imagine that their feelings for 2020 are decidedly mixed. They make the most of things with a New Years Eve dinner that serves four from $ 200. Collection and delivery are possible in NYE itself. The menu includes caviar, truffle chicken and a bottle of French wine. You can find online orders here.
The destination for fresh pasta from Russian Hill Seven hills, which just moved to a new location in late 2019, had a hell of a year including a recent break-in. They are going to send off with a New Years Eve dinner in 2020 which is not on their website at the time of publication but here’s a look. To order a pickup, email [email protected] or call 415-775-1550.
Harbor view serves a $ 118 “Family Feast Tray” for New Year’s pickup with egg rolls, fried chicken patties, marinated duck, and dim sum must-haves like pudding tarts and mantou rolls. Pre-order here.
The December bundle of Verjuice makes for a great happy hour in the evening with a bottle of Lelarge-Pugeot champagne, smoked salmon, caviar and blini. Just ignore their advice to “invite a friend or two” to join you, unless those friends are already members of your household. Order here.
For many people, the year only started when they had a big southern festival. Brenda’s French soul food is open to meet these needs on New Years Day from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Before 3pm you can enjoy the enviable brunch and the rest of the day there is a gumbo, jambalaya or grit dish for every member of your household. Here you can order the pick-up, the delivery takes place by Caviar.
eyeSoMa steakhouse, known for its pricey Wagyu dishes, will go into hibernation in January, with a reopening date that is still TBD. As the final act before the temporary closure, they offer an elaborate Kaluga caviar set worth $ 100 with all the fixings. Delivery and collection are both possible via Tock.
Lord StanleyThe five course seafood feast is served on New Years Eve and New Years Day but I don’t think 2020 has done enough to make a $ 150 per person meal on the last day. Better start 2021 with a variety of dishes like shrimp cocktail, salmon, and lobster claw salad. Go to Tock to arrange delivery or collection.
CoolWe’re stepping to the curb this year with a New Years cast due to be picked up on December 30th. So this works as a NYE or NYD option as you will heat up again in either case. There’s a $ 285 dinner for four that includes ribs and gratin. a truffle tagliatelle for two ($ 150) with a truffle cutter; and a two-person setup of Passmore Ranch caviar, homemade crème fraîche, and chestnut crespelle for $ 185. Order here.
A market Offers a year-end dinner of caviar and blinis, steak, or snapper for $ 85 per person and an addition of local Dungeness crab cakes for an additional $ 18. Pre-orders must be made on Tock.
Vegetarians will be delighted Green‘s Special New Year’s menu, an à la carte selection of snacks such as a creamy lentil dip, hearty soups such as potato soup and a shared plate menu with quiches and risotto cakes that can be nibbled throughout the day. There is also a wide variety of desserts (some vegan), cocktails, and wines. Place your order via this Google Doc by December 26th. On, the collection takes place on December 31st.
