There’s one thing every New Yorker knows to be true on NYE; do not go near midtown. Our Upper West Side location makes it easy to avoid the crowds, and some of your best options are just a short walk away from The Sagamore!
This Mediterranean restaurant has been spicing up the Upper West Side’s food scene since last year, and is introducing a new executive chef specializing in breads just in time for the New Year. For $75, enjoy a family-style menu full of items such as beefsteak tomato tart, taboon charred octopus, lamb terracotta, and raspberry champagne gelee. Toast 2016 with spicy apricot margaritas or lavender martinis or, if that’s just too out there, spring for a bottle of Baron Fuente Champagne Grande Reserve. 487 Amsterdam Avenue, 212-595-5050
