What Comes After Christmas?

19 Dec

Christmas can be an all-consuming endeavor: friends, family, food, festivities, music, presents — so much so, in fact, that we often forget to look ahead to the days following this special season.

In case you’ve forgotten, New Years Eve celebrations are right around the corner! If you haven’t decided what to do and are looking for a few good dining options in the ‘Burgh, check out Table Magazine’s recent piece on “Where to go and what to eat” while you ring in the new year.

New Year’s Eve 2011
Where to go and what to eat!

New Years Eve is the time to don the fancy dress and the highest (and hottest) heels to hit the city. But it’s also a holiday for fabulous, filling food. We’ve scoured the streets and found restaurants with special New Year’s Eve events. Grab a fork!

Have a little dessert before dinner at Dozen Bake Shop, in Lawrenceville and Oakland. They have cupcakes with liquor in the frosting or in the cake. Pick up a few margarita, cosmo or jack and coke cupcakes for yourself or to take to your New Year’s party. (Cheers!)

Head to Highland Park for E2’s family style dinner—featuring a special menu created by Chef Kate Romane—for $60 per person. It’s BYOB, so don’t forget the Champagne!

If you want a full-night affair, head to Seven Springs for one of two parties: the Foggy Goggle for $50 a person or the Matterhorn Lounge and Alpine Room Party for $25 per person. Both feature hors d’oeuvres from 9-11 p.m., DJ performances, and pork and sauerkraut at midnight.

If you’re down for even more of a road trip, head to Green House Tavern in Cleveland, Ohio. We fell in love with this place on a recent culinary trip. For $89, you can have a 9-course dinner menu (vegetarian available) and a show by three different DJs.

SAVOY is bringing in Celebrity DJ Biz Markie for their $100 event, which includes a three-course menu, complimentary wine, and a Champagne toast. For $50, you can hang in the lounge for a more laid-back celebration.

Spoon, in East Liberty, is celebrating with a small two-course meal—including chicken and dumplings or filet and crab bread pudding—and dessert. But, if you’re out in Allison Park, check out Blue’s New Year’s Eve menu and New Orleans style jazz by The Southern Comfort Band from 8 p.m. until midnight.

For a classic downtown Pittsburgh night, go to Braddock’s American Brasserie for $50 a person. The special menu includes prosciutto wrapped scallop galantine. (Yum.) Or check out Habitat, for $100 per person, for a six-course meal, featuring scallops and seared duck breast.
