Have never enjoyed NYE -- so much hype and too little delivered -- too many crowds, all dressed up for their big night out of the year. I celebrate NYE-style year-round in my own way -- every day is a holiday worth celebrating!
Have long been staying home NYE. But if I feel like venturing out, wondering which restaurants/ brasseries/ cafes, etc won't have 'special', ie super-marked up NYE menus with seatings and gussied up revelers. Any price, type of cuisine, location (though prefer UES); and very good/ great food with a laid-back type of festive spirit. Am 40, female and single, in case that matters, and it does.... Thanks!
