How depressing, right? I've researched this topic on the board, and everyone seems to say that buying things from the market and eating at home is the way to go.... however, its not very festive on new years eve to sit by yourself over a piece of foie in a hotel room.
also, the solo dining situation sort of dictates that i can't really do a menu that includes a whole bottle of wine (or copious amounts of food, anything), as i cant drink (or eat) that much myself and i'm flying back to the states the next morning. i will do pretty much anything- ethnic food... whatever. i would maybe even consider just doing a lunch on NYE, if such a thing exists, and then just go out later and drink some champagne.
i will be staying at hotel berne opera (right near the metro), near the 18th and 9th arrondisements.... any thoughts would be v. helpful. thanks in advance.
