What’s Happening This Week: New Year’s Eve in the City


As you may know, our weekly dining and drinking newsletter features all the coolest epicurean events in the city. Sign up for it here!

Boqueria Soho & Flatiron
Welcome the new year with a nine-course tapas tasting menu. There are two seatings — 6 and 9 p.m. — priced at $65 and $95, respectively. The latter includes unlimited sangria, wine, and a cava toast. Chef Marc Vidal will serve aged Serrano ham, Malpeque oysters, Spanish mackerel in puff pastry, seafood paella, and more.

Macao Trading Co.
Why not ring in the new year with a little T&A? Calamity Chang hosts an evening of burlesque performed while guests enjoy a Macanese feast, all for $100. Chef Josh Blakely will serve dishes like octopus carpaccio, foie gras terrine, grilled blue Hawaiian prawns, chicken and pork belly dumplings, shiitake-stuffed veal, and crispy whole fish.

Fatty Crab West Village & Upper West Side
Get crabby on the 31st with Fatty’s all-you-can-eat crab fest. Seventy-five dollars buys you an amuse-bouche and a glass of champagne, a choice of fatty sliders or steamed buns, and all the sweet crustaceans you can eat. Specifically, these are 18-ounce portions of Dungeness with chili sauce and toast. The catch? You have a one-hour time limit to chow down.
