San Francisco is undeniably one of the world’s hot spot for celebrating New Year’s Eve not only for its numerous fun, wild, and sometimes ribald New Year’e Eve parties, but also for the restaurants that serve the most memorable dish on your last meal of the year.
Though many restaurants are sure to offer a special, albeit pricey, New Year’s Eve menu, not all can boast all the varied components that go into making an epic restaurant New Year’s Eve celebration. In any case, when it comes to choosing a restaurant to ring in 2014 we are here to help you out by compiling a list of the 2014 top 5 restaurants in San Francisco/Bay Area to welcome 2015.
Acquerello offers cooking that is anything but delicate. Come and indulge yourself to rich representations of Italy’s finest dishes like their signature dish, the ridged pasta in foie gras and Marsala sauce. Wash off the savory flavors with Gianpaolo Paterlini’s 500-bottle wine list featuring top-tier Italian bottles with a focus on Piemonte, as well as a number of premium California entries.
Tucked down an alleyway, the venue is a fun, hidden place for upscale dates and group occasions, such as New Year’s Eve (of course). Seasonal American cuisine with a dainty twist flavors the house like tiny potato pillows topped with crème fraîche and caviar, and elegant little lamb burgers freshened with cucumber and dill. Richer flavors include the American Kobe bavette with puréed mashed potatoes, and truffled pecorino cheeseburgers.
Experience fine dining without the hassle of dressing up for the occasion. Classy yet laid back, this restaurant offers rustic Italian cuisine such as succulent Becker Lane pork loin that requires no other flavoring than its own juices, Michael Tusk’s (the owner) famed pasta, and wood-fired pizzas with innovative toppings (butternut squash and sage included). Relax with a very cool fixed-price wine program, which offers selections at $10 a glass and $40 per bottle.
4. Foreign Cinema
Watch classic foreign films projected nightly in an expansive, elegant restaurant courtyard while enjoying the warmth of a fireplace flickering nearby. The Mediterranean-inspired dishes are perfect for the crispy New Year’s Eve air. Try their house-cured sardines and spiced greens crostini or beef carpaccio with anchovy mayonnaise and vinegar and sea salt waffle chips.
Ring in New Year’s Eve in this sophisticated space which remained glimmering after 15 years. The kitchen crafts accessible French plates that bloom with California freshness and color. Wines are a joy, as is the famous, cellared cheese selection.
